I want 2019 to be the year everyone gets unstuck, you and I included. Let’s make it a make it, not break it year.
Don’t know where to start? Well, who influences you the most in life?
If you have one, your significant other.
All individuals become complacent, afraid to change their circumstances out of fear. Fear is okay, human instinct, and how nature intended us to be. The only combatant to fear is NOT fearlessness, but bravery.
This year be brave. Stop and take a good look at your significant other in 2019.
You and Your Significant Other
Before I get into this rant, realize that I’m a man speaking from the perspective of a man being in relationship with a woman, NOT including marriage.
Now that this is perfectly clear, if you’re single or in a relationship, great, nothing wrong with either. For the ones in a relationship, realize that you spend the most amount of resources on one person that WILL alter your path in 2019, for better or for worse.
Ask yourself these three questions:
Do you have doubts about where this relationship is going?
Is this relationship something you truly want?
Did your significant other’s list of demands increase from the previous year?
Where you hesitant to answer any of these questions?
I’m not going to be the one to tell you, “it’s over”. However, you need to recognize when it’s time to go. Too many ex-lovers delay the inevitable, wasting their valuable time, energy, and money. If this has the chance to be you, don’t let it be.
And for men, once you’ve consciously made your decision, it’s final. No spending time in and out of an expired relationship.
Let it go.
Beginning of the New Year Hangover
Most relationships won’t make it passed the first few months of the new year.
If you’re a newer couple (dating less than a year), you probably met each other’s family for the first time in November and then again in December. You truly see how a relationship might end up by observing the dynamics of your significant other’s family and how he/she interacts with them. Questions subconsciously start to form in your head.
If you’ve been dating for more than a year, you start seeing cracks come through once the “honeymoon” phase dwindles down. Your eyebrows raise. The holiday season comes around and usually brings some element of relief. Work slows down, vacation’s lined up, and you get to spend time with great people, all while hoping the holiday season fixes your relationship. Once, the new year begins and real life slaps you in the face, you take a hard look at the people around you.
At the beginning of every year people analyze ways to improve their life. Individuals make it a priority to clear out the unnecessary, sometimes significant other’s included. This is a good thing for both, regardless if it means ending a relationship.
If this happens to you, it’s not the end of the world. Make sure to respond with action. Action that involves picking yourself up, getting your life together, and making strides to turn 2019 into one of the best years of your life.
Time to get unstuck ladies and gentlemen.
