Relationships: Go for the Gold


We all want to be happy and find a partner in life with whom we’ll feel happiness with. I mean after all, why have a partner in life if you’re going to be miserable or unhappy. Having said that, being happy is something that’s a momentary feeling, and it’s something that we all need to strive not only to get, but to maintain. And when it comes to being in a relationship where you predominately don’t feel happy or when you feel that something just isn’t right or isn’t sitting well with you, maybe you’re not with the right match. 


Sometimes, we get used to the people that we explore relationships with, and we stay with them because of the fact that we’re so used to being around them. It’s almost as if at times, we forget what it’s like not to have someone by our side and to share things with. And therefore, many times we stay in unhappy relationships simply because we’d prefer to be with a person that we’re used to, rather than explore something new with someone else.


I mean, after all, that might sound understandably frightening to many people, so it it isn’t really all that surprising why there are so many unhappy couples that stay together. Many people are afraid of the unknown, and would prefer to feel safe, and choose, or stay with a safe bet, or what might be considered “a great catch,” despite the fact that they’re the wrong match for them.


But the truth is, you should never settle for being with a person, simply because you’re used to them. And you definitely shouldn’t settle for being unhappy. But most of all, remember never to fear being alone and single. It’s always better to be alone, rather than with the wrong person. You should never have to settle for less than what you want in life, and you definitely shouldn’t settle when it comes to who you want as a partner in life. 


Last but not least, when it comes to exploring relationships and spending your life with that one special someone, make sure that you’re the best possible match for one another. Forever is a long time, and you shouldn’t spend it with someone that you settled for. There’s an old saying that says to, “go for the gold.” So remember that saying, because you should never settle for less than what you want in life. Don’t settle for what’s right in front of you, what’s easiest to get, or what might seem convenient at the moment.


Go after the best possible match for you. And stop at nothing until you not only get that love of your life, but maintain that love by focusing on what makes the both of you happy. Being in a happy relationship takes hard work from both people, and you have to be willing to give it your all on a daily basis, and for always. But never, and I mean never, settle for being with the wrong person because it seems easier or because you’re used to them. Go after what you really want.
