Find True Wedded Bliss
I want to take a poll. How many of the married folks reading this article, got married with the vision of a happily ever after? How many of you can say that you actually reached that goal? Now, how many are still trying? A “miserable marriage” is a popular catch phrase thrown around today. However, I would dare say its true meaning has been lost in the confusion of what love, selflessness, and adventure really mean. What you see as misery, may, in fact, be an opportunity to take part in creating a lifelong goal, capable of creating happiness beyond your wildest dreams. Let’s look at how misery may be disguising the true happiness hidden within your relationships.
“When a relationship ends and your heart feels broken, nurture your spirit by forgiving yourself and the other person for things not working out.” – Rivers ext. 5273
Misery is a state of mind. Some people are miserable paupers. Others are woeful millionaires. A relationship cannot shape your satisfaction in life. Your ultimate satisfaction is up to you. If you want to find joyousness in your relationships, the first step is becoming happy with yourself. If you weren’t happy before you married, don’t expect tying the knot to become your Get Out of Misery Free Card.
“Broken hearts are one of the absolute worst pains there are out there.” – Lacy ext. 5494
A lot of married couples over-evaluate their happiness in a relationship, forgetting that all experiences are valuable in their own right. Statistics show that over three-quarters of troubled marriages that stick together to work out their differences, end up happily married in the end. Some relationships truly are bad, but others just need a little guidance to set them on the right track.
Misery can be a double-edged sword. Occasionally, a miserable spouse will set out to make their partner unhappy, as a form of retaliation for what they consider to be their fault. They end up making both their lives a veritable hell. One magical way to make yourself feel blessed, is to be a blessing to everyone you love, and the good karma will eventually catch up to you.
Happiness in marriage is about creating new goals to satisfy your ever-changing and growing partnership. When you set too many expectations in marriage, you sacrifice the astonishment that comes from discovering new things about yourselves. There is no such thing as a perfect marriage, only an ideal path, full of surprise, curiosity, and faith.
A little humor in your day, will keep many negative thoughts at bay.
Is your spouse the true cause of your misery? Many people who feel they are trapped in a miserable relationship, search for the easiest way out. This is usually to blame something, or somebody else, for their pain. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Who cares? The better question is, why choose to be miserable, when you can choose to be happy?
Some people would prefer wallowing in their misery, which is strangely comforting, then getting out and taking a chance, which means risking failure. What many people fear of being unsuccessful, is the disapproval of others? When you are addicted to approval, you fear taking risks, and end up accepting a mediocre existence, rather than charting a course to new territories of the spirit and soul.
What is true happiness in marriage? It is allowing each other the space to make mistakes and grow together through your faults and triumphs. It is understanding each other’s dreams. Learning to discover the joy in taking risks for the betterment of you and your partner’s life. So, is it possible to be completely happy in misery? Absolutely. It is all a matter of how you choose to see the challenges that proceed victory!
