How to Keep Love Alive
It’s very much a dance back and forward of drawing closer to your partner, drawing away from your partner. And that drawing away can invite them back and again hopefully into a cycle. But there’s also the possibility of breaking apart and holding that tension within a marriage.
Do we truly want to stay together? If we do, what can we imagine that in being like, how do we create that?
Could it be that people who are happier or do more exciting activities? Or is it that exciting activities makes you happier?
One can do enjoyable things with your partner and that’s fine, but it doesn’t create any excitement and that sense of passionate love; that sense of even connection with someone.
When you do something different, exciting, and you associate that with the person the relationship then, it takes on that quality of excitement.
