There is this common narrative or plot point that Hollywood likes to utilize in its romantic comedies a lot – the leading couple is forced to go through some kind of major setback in the middle of the movie only to find their way back into each other’s arms in the end. A lot of artificially constructed obstacles are placed in their path; and these obstacles are designed to really threaten the sanctity of their love. And the more difficult and hopeless the situation may become because of that setback, then the more rewarding the ending becomes when they finally end up together and live their fairytale conclusion.
If only real life worked like that, right? If only we were all guaranteed our happy endings no matter how difficult our challenges in our relationships might be. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Real life isn’t always going to be on our side. The universe isn’t always going to be so forgiving of our relationship sins. Sometimes, we screw up in our relationships to the point that we make things virtually irreparable. Relationships aren’t guaranteed happy endings in real life. Relationships end.
And that’s why it’s absolutely essential for couples to never take their relationships for granted. There are so many things that go into making a relationship work; and it can be hard to tick all the boxes in this regard. But couples must always be trying their best to make sure that they are putting themselves in the best position to have their fairytale endings. This is why it’s absolutely essential for you to be maintaining a certain sense of mindfulness and self-awareness in your relationship. You always have to know your place in your romance; and you need to be aware of what effects your words and actions are making on your relationship as a whole.
