How committed are you in your relationship?

I have to say, I am quite pleased with the responses I got from my previous post "The Energy of Love'. As this is my first bogging project, the comments I received certaintly encouraged me to continue blogging. Thank you Readers!

Today, I shall discuss about the issue concerning 'commitment'. The common belief is that a relationship is supposed to be fifty-fifty or half-half commitment from both parties. GIVE UP THIS THOUGHT AT ONCE! It is this belief that has led to many break-ups.

If you do not want to follow this footpath, then give your 100 per cent without waiting to see whether or not your partner is giving anything. A loving relationship needs full commitment!!!We have been conditioned to believe that relationships are sustained by both partners giving an equal and balanced amount in order for it to be successful. To me, it will not work this way.

The moment you enter into a relationship, you should not start thinking in terms of numbers. If you are so calculative, the relationship will be reduced to a petty mindset, where each person looks at the other' s contribution before their own.If having a relationship is so important to you, why not look at relationship differently? Regard them as a source that does not dry up, even when giving all the time.

If you want to spend your life with your partner, commitment is a MUST! It sometimes means giving up something to gain something. For example, cancelling something you would like to do in order to be able to enjoy something your partner wishes to do.

You have to be committed to your relationship and without doubt, commitment comes easily if you love somebody and strongly believe in the value of commitment. Before you think I sound naggy, STAY 100 % COMMITTED if you want to preserve your relationship! If you don't follow my advice, then be prepared to regret!!!!

You pretty much summed up what's wrong with relationships today.

There was a time when 100% meant being with just one person in a lifetime and working on everything that makes a relationship successful.

Today, however, we change partners as often as we change jobs. Every 3 - 5 years or so....
