80% of the time, we’re so sure of what we want from a relationship and who we want it with. 80% of my adolescent life, I was so sure I was going to get married to Alicia Keys, but that’s gist for another letter.
20% of the time though, we’re carried away by the waves of fantasy, led by our unstable emotions and hormones. Because of our insatiable appetite to want things and people we really don’t need, we jeopardize our relationships chasing after wind and shadows.
Contentment is the conscious fortitude to be satisfied in what you have and who you have in your life. Imagine owning a Mercedes and trading it in for a scooter just because you want to have a feel of what riding a scooter is like, only to ride it for a few minutes and realise you miss the comfort of your Benz. But at this point, it’s a bit too late because the trade has been made. Such wisdom.
Staying faithful isn’t as difficult as the world makes it seem, but it’s also not as easy as some people make it out to be, however, it’s always worth it. Being contented in one’s partner should literally be a no-brainer, right? But where’s your head at? And where’s your heart at?
Not everyone gets to experience true love, but when you do, stay true to your partner. And please, fight the urge to go ride that scooter. Okay?!
– With Love, From Love.
