Isn’t love all you need to make a relationship work?
In some relationships love has been turned into an excuse we use to tell ourselves to stay in a relationship. Have we all heard the term “but they love me” or “I love them. I can’t leave them”?.. This excuse is an underlying fear to keep us safe from being alone. It keeps us attached to that person or that relationship in fear from moving on and in reality avoiding what it is that we need to fix and heal the broken pieces. In a relationship its a combination of trust, acceptance and compatibility. Love is the interlink between these values that we share in a relationship. They are ALL essential. If one is missing, there is no love to interlink the other value.
