Having a strong support is essential for a successful and life-giving relationship. You should support each other.
But not at all times and in all things.
Still, you have to determine the things you are supporting and not. If your boyfriend really likes to play basketball, support him and much better if you can go with him personally.
And for guys, if your girlfriend likes to sing, support her and be her number one fan. Whatever passion or hobby your partner have, be their number one supporter and motivator. Don’t be insecure with yourself.
You both enjoy the moments.
But when it comes to doing things you think won’t do any good to your partner and to your relationship, be the first to remind your partner and help him or her understand your point of making such reminders.
If you can be successful with understanding each other, you are one step ahead of other couples out there.
In my case, I support my fiancé in her service to the Lord as well as her favorite food and places to go. At the same time, she supports me with my simple life and passion for writing.
But when I see anything wrong with what she’s doing, I am the first one to remind and correct her and vice versa.
However, it’s not always like that. From time to time, we experience misunderstandings and disappointments but we won’t allow a day pass without us being reconciled.
