Every relationship is different, and it is these differences that can either make our connection stronger, or destroy it entirely. Ignoring your differences is no way to build a life together. We have to have the courage to confront these divides and accept them for what they are.
Differences are crucial to address across the different planes of our relationships. We have to ask ourselves, do we want the same things out of our family lives? What about our careers, or the things we want for our retirement? Successful relationships aren’t those in which we sweep everything under the rug and pretend to be happy. They are the ones in which we bravely embrace our differences and find the middle way to travel side-by-side.
