Criticizing like a Married Couple

17 Mar

Early in a relationship we see only the good things. Months later we start to notice bad habits. Years go by and those habits begin to annoy us. Before we know it, we dislike everything that we use to love. What is the difference between this and a friendship that falls apart? Unconditional love.

If unconditional love is missing, in any kind of relationship, then forgiveness is absent as well. If forgiveness is absent, there is no way for it to survive, because all of the things that are hated, become the things to be focused on. This is why it is so difficult to have intimate relationships with people. There is no (true) love.

    Do you think every relationship has an expiry date?
    I think relationships change through time, from highs of the initial romance, to the passion, onto the friendship then ending with companionship.

    I guess most relationships may only make it through to the friendship stage – when you hit the friendship stage and realise you don’t actually like the friend your with.

    Great post – made me think 🙂

      Thanks for the comment! No, I don’t believe every relationship will end. I just think that the ones that do lack that love which forgives. I also don’t think it is possible to keep every relationship/friendship you have in life, because it takes more than one person to keep it alive, and it is only natural to pass through different lives. This was just a thought I had on why friendships usually don’t last, because we start seeing things we don’t like, how failed friendships are similar to failed relationships, and it just made me think if we were actually friends to begin with then…

      Lots of thinking 😉
