Here is one reason why at times, a partner falls out of love despite everything that the other person has done for him: It’s not always in how much the other person has accomplished for him, for such only puts a burden of obligation upon his shoulders. What’s more important to him is the person that she is, the person she has become!
Has she become cold and concerned only about the household chores? Has she forgotten her inner child? Has she forgotten how to laugh? Has she forgotten how beautiful she really is?
We sometimes have a tendency to forget ourselves and to set aside our needs in order to care for other people. This is not bad! But we must remember that the most important gift we could ever give to the world is to be the best of who we are. It’s our very presence that should stir joy and inspiration in their hearts, not merely the things that we do.
Think about our relationship with God. God gives us many things – food to eat, clothes to wear, friends to talk to, activities to enjoy, dreams to achieve, missions to accomplish. But though these things be good and many, not one of them could ever compare to the Giver of them all. Even if we could have His gifts, our happiness wouldn’t be complete without His Very Presence, the Gift of Himself.
