Time in a relationship means nothing.
Time in a relationship means nothing if either or both of you don’t know what you want from yourself, your life. Time in a relationship means nothing if you don’t know what you want from each other, and from your future together.
Time in a relationship means nothing. You can spend 5 years with someone and, yet end up confused, heartbroken and clueless of where they stand with you. You can spend 6 months with someone and, end up realising you want to spend rest of your life together. Time in a relationship means nothing if you don’t understand what you are looking for and, if you cannot be consistent and are scared of a lifelong commitment.
I always say this, from my personal experience that ‘Time In A Relationship Means Nothing’ — because 1 year or 10 years doesn’t guarantee your happiness. The only thing that guarantee that is the feeling of contentment and respect that you feel for each other, and both of your dreams. Everything else be it — compatability, finances, other practicalities and, technicalities— can be smoothly worked out together if you truly want to be with them.
Time in a relationship means nothing. And to know if you want to be with them or not doesn’t require a lot of time. You will know, the moment you understand what you truly want to see in yourself, and in your future partner. The longer you spend time with them, doesn’t guarantee a successful lifelong relationship. It’s how much you respect, applaud, appreciate, understand, support and balance each other guarantees a partnership. And ofcourse, there has to be enough acceptance for each other – to last a life time of loving every evolved and flawed version of each other. That, and love should exist to keep the fire in your hearts lit.
Time in a relationship means nothing. And the moment you come to this realization you will either start building a forever life with them together, or will pack your bags and leave. The sooner you understand this the easier it will be for the both of you to either work on your differences together, — or to let go, move on and, heal. Because time in a relationship means nothing.
So, respect your time and efforts and, theirs too.
