Relationships should develop & grow over time. Where your relationship is after any measure of time should not be, feel, or look like it did when it started. And even more, there should be meaningful, benefitting progress. If this is not the case, then one or both of you are not fully committed to investing themselves into the relationship.
Relationship investments are easy to spot. They are not words though words are important. They are not actions though actions are indicators of investments and are absolutely necessary. Investments are realized by consistent efforts made that validate your commitment to you, me & us. These patterns demonstrate commitment. They reveal intention, interest and investment.
We’re all guilty of sometimes not seeing it, or seeing only what we want to see, or even choosing to ignore the truth of the patterns seen. I’ve been there. But I know this, if you keep making promises that don’t result in action and don’t show up as patterns - then your promises are empty which is a clear sign of weak commitment.
While actions speak louder than words, patterns speak louder than actions. I need to SEE what you SAY over & over & over & over & over. And I need to accept what I see you saying loud & clear.
