Oh those up and downs in life are just like waves on the ocean. They simply just appear and there is really nothing you can do. I’ve recently been through some of them again and so I thought I look up what I’ve written previously about it. I couldn’t agree more with this post form… hey, just a year ago!
My husband is my rock and I know I’m his. It’s a great feeling to know that you do have someone there for you. Always. It’s what love is all about as well, isn’t it? To know that you are there for each other.
What I like to add to this post though is, that sometimes you also need the right friends in your life. Sometimes, when you as a couple go through the ups and downs together you might end up in a down both of you and then it’s especially hard to motivate your partner. It’s those moments when friends can give you what your partner might not be able to. Not because he or she doesn’t want to or because you don’t want to approach your partner. Just because the energy of both of you might be low.
Your friends don’t necessarily need to know about your down. They might not even think that you are at a point like that. It can be their presence only that might make you feel better. And sometimes, if they really are the close friends you expected them to be, they will be able to feel it and lift you up in the way you need it. Then you will know, what you have in them.
I hope you enjoy this short blast from the blogging past…
Life is not always a smooth ride and those up and downs can be pretty exhausting. When you are down and things seem to be going wrong still you might find yourself wanting to get out but not knowing how to really. It’s those moments when you need someone special to go through them with you.
I am fortunate enough that I not only have great friends but most of all an amazing partner. My husband is my rock and if I get to a point where I just can’t see clear anymore, he is always there for me. You know I manage pretty well usually and it takes quite a lot until I reach the point where I feel like I am surrounded with thick fog and just can’t see the other side of the room anymore.
In moments like this it is him who starts talking to me and slowly but surely makes this fog disappear. My river of life might still be pretty wild in this very moment. Nothing really would change but my perception of it. By just having a chat with him, I calm down and look at the issue again in a different way. My world is still spinning but rather then spinning with it, I am kind of watching it from far and that is when I can start working on a solution. And by working on it, things get under control again and the world might just as well stop spinning. It only takes my husband and all is right in the world again.
