How does growing together for 17 years make our bond even stronger?
Anniversaries are the perfect days to remind you how long have you been together. How much have you matured and what have you learnt in the due course? February is a busy month for me in terms of birthdays and anniversaries. A month of gifting and celebrations where you cherish some old and many new memories together. Well, looking back at the time spent together, I realize simple and organic habits have made our bond even stronger.
Simple and organic habits that fetch you happiness
With time, you get used to each other. Now just being around equals spending time together even if we both are watching individual content on our mobiles. Stepping into the matured bandwagon, unnecessary arguments and awkwardness are replaced with remaining quiet and making situations unseen unheard. Patience rules both partners making difficult times pass with ease if not better.
Irritating habits of your spouse change into signs of their presence in the house. As much as you are aware of your partner, there are many small gestures showing the same level of respect for you too. Some things don’t change like your dependency on each other to share success stories and not-so-good moments. Celebrations are incomplete and problems remain unsolved if not shared with your partner.
Sometimes, the silence between you two suffocates you but you know that time heals all wounds and once again you smell happiness in the air. You don’t wait for important calendar dates to celebrate occasions but create your own dates to celebrate happiness with each other.
What we did this year made our bond even stronger
This anniversary we went back in time and visited a cafe as my partner loves to explore coffee shops. However, our order was not as delicious as our remembrance of the courtship times and sweet nothings of the initial years. We enjoyed a lovely time together and headed back to our regular lives hours later.
Every couple has its own ladder of memories to share, how much have they achieved and what are their sweet and sour learnings. So how have you matured with your partner over these years? Do share with all of us and let’s enjoy the stories together!
