Many if not all desire to be in a relationship that would last a very very long time.
The wish is actually forever.
But if a relationship begins on a selfish note, desiring to get rather than to give, then it begins on a faulty foundation. When you find yourself in a relationship that only desires to consistently get and not give, then it really is just a matter of time before it crashes.
Over and over again, I’ve referred to Ed Cole’s comparison between love and lust.
Love desires to benefit others at the expense of self, because love desires to give.
Lust desires to benefit self at the expense of others, because lust desires to get.
Relationships don’t need to be complicated. It does unfortunately when it becomes about SELF.
But when it moves SELF-CENTEREDNESS to SELF-SACRIFICE, then you discover the beauty a relationship.
