Girl breaks up with guy. Guy creates distance from the girl. What does it mean to give your all? Some waiters get more than they deserve, and some waiters get less. The moment you feel like you no longer recognize yourself is the moment where resentment is invited into your relationship. Some couples experience major transformations — one person loses a ton of weight or one person gets the opportunity of a lifetime.
Giving up yourself means changing the core of who you are — sacrificing your values, being isolated from your friends or family or worse being verbally or physically abused. Giving your all means sharing your time, energy and space. It may mean that you tell the truth in order to protect the other person. You need more time alone with your partner. You need some time to yourself. A good healthy relationship is both fulfilling and challenging.
Fulfilling in a sense that it makes your life better. Your partner should be an asset to your life, not a destructive force. Most of the time, you look forward to spending time with him or her. A good relationship should also be challenging… sometimes you have to grow out of your comfort zone. It comes with aches and pains. Sometimes it looks like the relationship is going to flatline, but with triage, it comes back to life.
Giving your all means honoring your mutual commitments. It means being available and being present. It means sacrifice and steadiness. So are you really giving it your all?
