Hi Robyn D'Angelo here, The Happy Couple Expert and your relationship coach, teaching you how to create your very own EPIC relationship that lasts. Today, I want to talk about something that I've heard in the past couple weeks quite often and it is: "Robyn, is it supposed to really be that hard? I mean, we just started dating. We just have married only a year, is this supposed to be this hard?"
Let me tell you— when it comes to relationships, my quick answer to this is: YES!
In the beginning it is supposed to be this hard and here's why: This is something that you value and is a really high priority with you which means, you're putting a ton of energy and effort into creating a really EPIC and solid foundation, am I right? And when you do this-- it's hard work.
I mean, think about any project that requires attention, focus and a lot of your energy. It's going to take hard work and once you can create this foundation of stellar communication and really killer respect and admiration for one another and the ability to repair when things go wrong, (‘cause, yes— things go wrong) once you have that foundation established, things get easier. As time goes on, things get easier. It doesn't mean that you stop giving attention to what you've created.
Think about a garden… You go out and plant a garden and it bears fruit and you go out and pick the fruit or the vegetables but you never stop watering it and you never stop giving it sunshine and fertilizer and just loving it so that you can continue to harvest from it.
Relationships are the same way.
So, yes, it's hard work in the begining. Once you lay that foundation, it gets easier and easier, especially to deal with the rough patches and the hard times. And if you're sitting here listening to this going, "But Robyn, — we've been together for years! How are we going to go back and redo this foundation?" Or "Gosh, we're just getting started, how do we do this?" Awesome! I'd love to help you.
