Meshing Lives .

For those couples who are often future-looking and have a tendency to think about what things might be like in five, ten and fifteen years, it's often hard to think about how you will make all of both of your dreams come true. When you sit down as a single person, you have tons of personal dreams and goals, and naturally you want the ability to meet all of them. But when someone who eventually means a lot to you enters your life, things change and you truly have to take into account another set of dreams and goals. Somehow, the goal is to make all of these things come to fruition and still end up as happy campers on both ends. My question to the world and those who have conquered that, how did you do it?

This is where what I call the "ultimate sacrifice" comes into play. There is an easy question that can be the end-all be-all to your problems: do you love that person enough to accept that not everything you dream up for yourself might become a reality? If the answer is yes, then it shouldn't be an issue.

There are, of course, some things that you've always thought about and dreamt about that you might not be willing to give up. The other person might have some of their own. And that's where the comprising comes in, where the love comes in, where deciding things together and not alone as a single entity comes in.

And so for those who made it, bravo. Your love exceeds everything, and that's something really admirable.

  1. This is a beautiful realization and level of understanding. It seems that you are stepping further into a world in which I still feel quite at a loss. I am a little bit jealous, but also very happy for you.


Would love to hear what you are thinking. Leave a comment!
