Water Your Own Grass
Maybe relationships used to last longer because it wasn't as easy as it is now to just give up.
When things get tough, you can find someone new as easy as hitting "message now."
Most people have a new relationship lined up before breaking off their old one.
Instead of fixing things, they go and find new.
The grass isn't greener on the other side.
It's greener where YOU WATER IT.
If you want a relationship or a marriage to work, it will take some watering.
Some tough conversations.
It takes cheering one another on.
Having each other's backs when the going gets tough.
Being a shoulder to cry on.
Picking up slack on days the other person can't give 100%.
And letting them do the same on days you can only give 10%.
It takes appreciation
Owning your mistakes
Apologizing when you're wrong
And a whole lot of grace.
So if you want your relationship or marriage to work…
Stop focusing on the sod across the street.
And water your own grass.
