You hear all the time about how love can conquer anything but is it true? Does love REALLY conquer all? If that's the case then why do so many people who love each other break up all the time, right? More importantly, you want to know why your girlfriend broke up with you. You know you love her and you really believe that she still loves you. So where is the whole conquering thing now? What's it doing for you and your relationship?
Love can conquer a lot of obstacles that are thrown in its way. A lot of couples survive the first few years of marriage because they are so madly in love with each other and can overlook each other's flaws. But, in time, that new love or "in love" feeling wears off. It's still love. It's just not quite as shiny, new, and exciting. This is when many people stop overlooking, forgiving, and forgetting the "sins" of their partners. Unfortunately, it's also when they stop trying so hard to make their relationships work.
They do still love each other. They love each other very much. Otherwise they wouldn't be as hurt over the sudden change of course as they are. The problem is that they stop believing that love can conquer anything life throws there way. And then, they start believing that sometimes love just isn't enough. But, nothing could be further from the truth. Love is something that lasts. It isn't something you turn on or off. It's not here today and gone tomorrow. It will stand the tests of time as long as both parties are willing to put a little effort into helping it along. In other words, love does conquer all but only if "all" is present. It is possible to save your relationship from doom if at least one of you is willing to put forth the effort to make that happen.
Here are a few things you can do to help love along a little bit and make the most of your efforts to make your relationship work.
- Talk to your partner. You need to spend a little time talking together each and every day. Don't let silence slip into your relationships and don't count arguments as conversations.
- Touch your partner. There is healing power in the human touch. Use it to heal the hurts that have been caused by careless words and inattention. Hold hands, rub backs, and let your partner know you are on his or her side.
- Laugh together. The power of laughter is legendary – with reason. There is healing in laughter that no medicine can match. Laugh together and laugh often if you want to help love conquer the problems your relationship faces.
You don't have to go around the world to find healing for your battered relationship. You can even get your ex back if you know the right path to follow. Now is far too soon to give up on love and its ability to conquer all.
