is love alone enough

I have discovered that love doesn’t guarantee the success of a relationship.

Love alone cannot help you stick to one person all year round, and on the other hand, cheating isn’t always a product of not loving your partner.

In fact, loving someone doesn’t guarantee not falling in love with another person.


Relationships work out mostly because of our head, not just our heart.

It works out because of our emotional maturity, empathetic intelligence, and self-discipline.

Because a time will come when you’ll see more beautiful, handsome, romantic, intelligent, sexy, rich, curvy and far more God-fearing people than the one you’re in a relationship with. In those times, love alone will not help you, but self-control will help you; emotional intelligence will come to your rescue and commitment will keep you going.

With those characteristics, no matter what you feel for someone else, the person you’re committed to will rank first in your life.

You think happily married people don’t see better people than the ones they married? You think they don’t feel sexually attracted to other people sometimes? You think they don’t catch feelings from eye contact, smells or even a pleasant smile?

They do!

But understanding that commitment isĀ greater than feelings is key to fighting such impulses.


Relationships are not ready made.

You have to build it.

You can fall in love with absolutely anyone, but building a relationship takes so much more than what attracted you to them in the first place. It takes more than just love.

We tend to love when it’s convenient. When it is sweet. We tend to love when those lovey-dovey feelings are there. But that can only last for about the first 3-6 months of the relationship. Then the exuberance of love and excitement begins to fail and drop.

Then, you’ll realize it’s now your responsibility to make it work, not love’s responsibility.

It’s never always about love alone; it requires commitment, it requires intelligence, it requires selflessness.

Discipline yourself. Bridle your emotions. Building a relationship is hard work.


But You Can Make It Work!!!

By putting your heads together.

You can scale through those trying times by being focused, committed and emotionally strong.
