I wanted to continue with last week's love story, but life is funny & always throws little curve balls our way. And something much more important than my engagement story (3 years ago yesterday, btw!!) came up.
Over the past month or so, Christian & I just haven't been clicking. It's not like we were fighting or mad at each other... it was just that something was off. And finally, finally we were able to put a name to it.
We've both been growing & learning & developing - for the first time in a long time separately from the other in areas in our own life - and it's like the world just got a little out of focus. But, once I muttered those words, growing pains, the focus was adjusted and we both instantly saw eye to eye on everything once again. The heaviness in the air was lifted, and we had true, legitimate fun. (Bonus: we've slept better since too!)
I marvel at how everything can be fine, and yet still not. It's just a reminder that we all really are just people... flawed, imperfect. And also it's a good reminder that "not clicking" doesn't have to be anybody's fault. Sometimes it just is.
And that's it. Short & simple.
What have you learned in your relationship recently?
