Remember the beginning of your relationship? Every time he walked into the room your stomach did flip-flops. Just the way she looked at you made you weak in the knees? What happens to that feeling? Where does it go?
Life happens and we start to take each other for granted. You might have children and they take all your focus. Or you just get too comfortable with each other: pass gas around each other, share the bathroom at the same time, or just stop wearing makeup while your home. All these little things make us forget why we fell in love originally.
Remember how you tried to look your best, even when it was time to go to bed? How do you get that back? Are you still in love or just in a routine?
I have seen many couples divorce after many years of marriage because they just don’t have passion for each other. Are those who are still married, feeling a bit stuck in a rut, settling? Or is love just that way? Does passion have to end? It’s such a high and makes you look forward to a new day. Why can’t that be something we feel all the time?
I don’t have the answer. I wish I did. Is moving on to a new relationship the answer? Will the passion eventually fizzle out of that one too leaving you to hop to the next? Is passion love? Does love have passion? Hmmm….thoughts to ponder.
