Why Relationships Outside of Your Relationship are Important

Why Relationships Outside of Your Relationship are Important

When you get into a new relationship, it is easy to fall into the puppy love stage. You cannot get enough of each other and want to spend every second together when you first get together. While it is easy to become completely consumed in your relationship, you have to remember that there are other relationships that are just as important, and if you are not careful, you can neglect them. 

You have to remember that you have friends, and they probably don’t want to hear about how great you think he or she is 24/7. They especially don’t want to see it all the time. Take time to do things without each other and hang out with your friends. They can keep you grounded and prevent you from becoming too sappy. 

If you ditch your friends all of the time to be with your girl or guy, you might find that you miss out on things and you might grow distant from even the best of friends if you don’t take time to nurture your friendship. Besides, if things don’t work out in your relationship, you will really need those friends to be there. If you want, you can incorporate your significant other into your friend group and maybe merge both of y'all’s friend groups together. There is nothing better than seeing your boyfriend or girlfriend get along with your best friends.

Family is another important relationship you have to maintain. Especially as a teenager or young adult, you might not consider family relationships as important as romantic ones. Family, in most cases, are the people who will always be there for you and do anything for you, so it’ is important to take time to keep those relationships strong. You can incorporate each other into your families and find that you gain new relationships that way.

It may sound weird, but an important relationship you have to remember to maintain is the one that you have with yourself. When you get together with someone, you lose a little bit of freedom. That is okay, but what you don’t want to lose is yourself. Keep doing those hobbies that you love. Don’t be afraid to be alone and spend time with your thoughts. Stay true to who you are. Compromise but don’t break and maintain your own opinions and dreams. Don’t become a half to a whole; you alone are whole.

Spend as much time as you want with the person you are with. The time when you just cannot get enough of each other is short, anyway. Just remember that other relationships in your life can provide you with things that a romantic relationship cannot, and for that reason, they are important to have.

To My Person: This one's for you.

A letter to my person.

To my person, to my best-friend, the one i tell my soul too. I never imagined my person being my best-friend. I always thought the term having a person meant you it was your significant other but I was wrong. 

Thank you for the late night conversations. Thank you for calming my panic attacks. Thank you for talking to me about nothing but it meaning the world to me. Their is no one else id rather spend every single weekend with you, text for hours on and on, or go on my spontaneous adventures with. 

You are the other half of me. Your the person that when no one else understands why my emotions are the way they are you understand. Through you losing your dad, my mom going through cancer we have stayed strong together. I didn't have to fight the battle of my mom going through cancer alone because you fought with me. When i was lost in a hole of depression and all i wanted to do was end my life you pushed me and told me the feelings wouldn't last and hear i am alive, happy, and well typing this letter to you.

I wish their was some way to say thank you to you. All the hugs, presents, 2 am venting sessions, constant love, i couldn't began to thank you for it. In a world were i have felt so much hurt and pain you bring me happiness and love. Were soul-mates, I am who I am because of you. You touched my life in ways you will never realize.

When you find your person you must not let them go. hold your person tight, don't let them push you away, don't let your petty arguments ruin your friendship. When you meet your person you will know it right away. Your person is calming to you, isn't controlling, loves you and accepts you for you. They want you to better yourself and succeed in life. 

Your person isn't someone who your get wasted with every weekend. Your person is someone who helps you write your last minute assignment, comes and gets you after a long day at work because your boyfriend is being a jack-ass again. Your person is someone who spends the weekend with you and is happy just because your with them.

Your person is someone who puts in as much effort as you do. They will put in the 80 percent when you put it 20 percent because your having a terrible day. Don't push them away.

My letter to my person, this one is for you. I love you with all my heart and I promise to never leave your life. and always remember "you're still my person, even if i'm not yours."

Love, 

Your "Person"
