Why is it so difficult to keep the juices flowing in a relationship? Why does the momentum of the relationship fade away? Is it inevitable that after some years the initial freshness turns into devastating boredom? Or worse, that two people who were first lovers end up hating and destroying each other? Real love is supportive. Love yourself, love your dream, love your mission, love your life, and surely enough, a wonderful person will show up and love you even more.
The Beatles got it right when they sang: "All you need is love." But, people tend to get it wrong when they don't differentiate between being in love and what it takes to have a love relationship. After "kissing a lot of frogs," hoping your prince or princess will appear, or after a demoralizing dry spell, falling in love seems like a magic potion that will get you through the rest of your life.
