One of the filters that we need to experience human being is being a couple. An intimate relationship helps us to elevate each other to become our best possible self, therefore we experience the timeless relationship.
What we know somehow love in this reality has been misdefined. Through history of human being the reason of getting married or being a couple misunderstood. Many times we are in relationship to feel complete or to be secured. Or many other reasons. Be honest with yourself and analyze your relationship. It has a lot to show you. You will find a brutal honesty there. Be with it. You are in the right place. Be encouraged and go even deeper.
As you know, we are complete beings. We are beyond who think we are.
