I Know What Will Destroy Your Relationship in the Future
I want you to think about something for a minute…
Imagine yourself in 5–10 years from now. What does your relationship look like? What type of person are you with? Are you married? Engaged? Have an idea in your mind?
Okay, so then, what if I told you that something was going to come and ruin all that in a matter of days….
You’d probably be pretty curious about what I’m talking about. So, I’m going to do you a favor and let you in on the little secret.
Your phone will start killing your relationship, every second of everyday without you noticing.
Shocked? Maybe you are and maybe you aren’t, but let me tell you this…
If you don’t act now, you will regret it for the rest of your life. Here’s why:
Communication and connection is a big part of relationships. It’s especially a big part of just being human. Without those two things, a person may feel alone or isolated.
Your phone takes those two things and warps them into things that you think you want instead. But in the long run, you won’t be happy.
Some people believe that texting and tweeting is the best way to connect with others. While other people believe that face-to-face communication is the better way to connect. It’s a question of what we want from the relationship.
From observation and personal experience, most people want the communication and connection you get from in-person interaction. People want to look in their partner’s eyes and see that they are loved. Those kinds of things are ones that your phone can’t give you.
Maybe you are someone who doesn’t need that in person interaction, and that’s fine. If that’s the case, then make sure your partner is on board. They might start wanting that in-person interaction, and if you refuse it your relationship will be destroyed.
There is no emotion in texting and tweeting. There is no passion. Everything that’s said, is said with emojis. What is the point of communication at that point.
The real things in life come from REALITY not from a phone screen or computer screen.
My solution is this:
- Turn off your damn phone at dinner!
o Nothing is worse than trying to talk to someone while they are staring down at their phone. It’s not only disrespectful, but insulting. You are there to be with that person, not stay tied up in the outside world.
- Kind gestures can go a long way!
o A random act of kindness and gratitude that doesn’t involve your phone is a great way to keep the passion alive. Do something for your partner that will let them know you love them. This will bring more of reality into your life
- Go adventure!
o Sometimes it’s good to go somewhere, just you and you partner, and explore. Live life without all the distractions of social media and politics.
Nothing is more important in life than relationship with others. With a little tender, love, and care, the relationship you imagined for yourself in 5–10 years, will be even better than you thought it could be.
Don’t let your phone destroy the important things in life. Walk back to reality.
