This is a subject quite dear to my heart. With both Pete and I developing our own businesses, we’ve gone through phases of putting our relationship on the back-burner. This has been okay and even necessary at times, but whenever it’s gone on for too long, our sense of togetherness begins to take a hit.
I believe many people experience this in our day and age. We’re all busy – maxed out with never ending to-do-lists and working around the clocks. Taking our partners for granted is the easiest thing! We’re tired, and when we come home, we just want a break! But we’re deluding ourselves when we think that our relationships don’t deserve the same kind of energy and enthusiasm we present to the outside world.
