Think it’s just sad Bridget Jones-like singletons that feel lonely on Valentine’s Day as they watch a steady procession of bouquets whizz by? Think again.
You could be spending Valentine’s Day with someone who “used to”.
Someone who used to talk with/to you, used to sleep with you, used to share things with you, used to want you, used to care. Someone who used to love you.
Or, worse still, you could have woken this morning to the realisation that you’re the one who “used to”.
“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.” Anaïs Nin
Something to think about for this coming Valentine’s Day. Is your relationship slowly dying an unnatural death?
Five things you can immediately do to give it a “kiss of life”.
Or you could try the following – cut out the suggestions – add some more if you wish and put them in a jar. Then get your partner to pull one out – you pull one out and you both decide which one to do. Together.
If you do not change direction, you may end up where you’re heading.
It’s worth checking occasionally that the changes you’re making to your life are actually an improvement.
