Keep Your Love Afloat

14 Feb

On Valentine’s Day, I would like to share with you the most beautiful metaphor of a relationship that I have heard, with all quote credits going to my partner:

“We are a team. We are not two people rowing down one river side by side in separate boats; we are in one boat. And we have to work together to keep the boat afloat. We have to communicate clearly and regularly to give each other advice and instructions, we have to understand and accept the other’s weaknesses and work with them, we both have to make a little more effort in turbulent parts of the river, and we have to offer help when the other is struggling.
Only continual effort from both sides will create the balance and movement to keep our boat afloat.”

I wish you all a calm and beautiful ride down the river in your boats with your loved ones. If you do not yet have a rowing partner, I hope you find one with whom the journey will be peaceful and the scenery will be breathtaking.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
