Everybody’s searching for true love. To those who have found it, congratulations. It isn’t easy for love to be born between two people. They not only have to meet, they must go through good times and bad until love develops. The love that partners show to each other varies depending on the couple, and each couple needs time to adjust or get used to each other. Over time, love can change. The perfect love that we desire is sometimes too much, or maybe not enough. Honestly, is it possible to maintain the level of love between two people to be forever balanced?
Before you go too far, ask yourself this, “by what scale and measure are you calculating that your partner loves you less?” Is it just a feeling? Is it that your partner no longer does the things, or acts the way they used to? If you’re convinced of your feelings, then there’s a high chance the love in your relationship might be dissipating. This could be because you choose to believe that your partner’s behavior proves they love you less without considering the reasons behind those actions, or lack of actions.
In this context, it’s possible that there are other things your partner has done that could help fill in the missing pieces, but you overlooked them. Maybe your partner doesn’t use the sweetest words or isn’t as considerate as he or she used to be, but they’re still there. Smiling at you. Standing beside you each time you need encouragement and support.
An important thing to remember is that what makes the love that people have for each other different, depends on the perspectives on love, life, and all the experiences they’ve had. These can all affect how someone expresses love. Love is complex. Some people love hearing sweet words of love, but some just want to be able to spend time with the ones they love. Sometimes just a phone call is enough to make someone feel loved. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that recognizing these signs of love is difficult.
If on any given day you can see clearly that your partner’s expressions of love are no longer the same, remember to not just look at it from a single point of view. I recommend that you look at it from every angle, consider what the foundation of your love is, and think about how your partner usually expresses love. I can guarantee that it will prolong the life of your relationship.
Now, if you ask me, “is it important if the love we have for each other is unequal?” My answer would be, “No”. Whether you’re dating or married, love begins with each partner having good intentions towards each other. When time passes, and they’ve spent more of their lives together, it’s possible that something could happen to make one partner feel that the love they share is no longer equal. Part of it comes from comparing love with the standards that you yourself have set. I believe one things, “that everyone who loves someone will express their love in the way that they understand will make their partner happy. If the person we love is happy, it isn’t important who loves who more.”
Just try to understand each other more and more each day, and I guarantee that you and the one you love will be happy with the love you have, till death do you part.
