Are you feeling the love today? Or are you feeling obligated to stay in a relationship that just doesn't give you that warm, fuzzy feeling anymore? Well, you're in the right place because I'm here to share some wisdom on the topic!
First off, let's talk about the difference between a marriage of love and support versus one of obligation. It's simple really - in a marriage of love and support, you and your partner are there for each other through thick and thin because you genuinely want to be. You lift each other up, you cheer each other on, and you do whatever it takes to make each other happy. It's a partnership that's built on mutual respect, trust, and, of course, love.
On the other hand, a marriage of obligation is one that's built on...well, obligation. You might feel like you have to stay in the relationship because of societal expectations, because you don't want to be alone, or because you've invested so much time and effort into it already. You might stay in the relationship even if it's no longer making you happy, simply because it's the "right" thing to do.
Now, here's the kicker - your attitude can determine which type of marriage you have. If you approach your relationship with a positive attitude, focusing on the love and support you have for each other, then you're more likely to have a marriage of love and support. But if you approach your relationship with a negative attitude, focusing on the obligations and expectations that come with it, then you're more likely to have a marriage of obligation.
I know this all too well. In this video, I share a little story about how my attitude affected the opinions of others and my relationship with myself. I realized that my attitude towards my marriage was causing me to feel unfulfilled and unhappy. But once I shifted my focus to the love and support I had, my attitude changed, and my relationship flourished.
So, if you're feeling stuck in a marriage of obligation, take a step back and ask yourself - what's my attitude towards this relationship? Am I focusing on the love and support, or am I bogged down by obligations and expectations? Remember, it's never too late to shift your attitude and create the marriage of love and support that you deserve!
