What I took away from all this
My short answer would be “my future.” If I didn’t learn to see the other side as I do today, I would have lost my partner for good. I still don’t know how they managed to put up with the old me for so long. I came to realize that I wouldn’t.
I know that not everyone will have such a patient and forgiving partner at their side. That’s why I hope this article has opened your eyes to a different view. If things are going bad right now, there’s still time to turn things around.
Become a better you first, then you will bring more harmony between you and your partner automatically. Maybe you can point your partner here while telling them that you worked on your introspection. If they take a look, even just to see what you’ve been up to, maybe they will reflect on themselves in a similar way.
If both partners are more understanding of each other, true love will bloom all by itself. Now I wish you a long and joyful relationship.
