Relationships get better with age…
Relationships get better with age…age being maturity. The older we get the more we are able to appreciate others. And the more we appreciate ourselves. I don’t think we can truly know and love another person until we truly know and love ourselves. These qualities get much more solid as we get older.
With age, we become less focused on the negative things and the “what ifs”. We learn to enjoy the moment, enjoy what we have, respect and cherish what is in our life. I don’t know if it’s because we are facing our own mortality, or if it is just that we realize that all the petty crap isn’t worth the time we give it.
What I do know is that in my middle ages I have a truly adult relationship. It is much easier for us to talk to one another, even if we may get mad. We can talk, work through things…we have more patience to see it through as opposed to rashly walking out on something.
