We are all watching our own movies play out in every moment and no one will ever see or feel how life looks like through our lense. We are the main character of our movies and everyone else is simply in a supporting role.
A sign of a great partner is that they celebrate your successes and challenge you to be the best version of yourself. Long story short, you mirror one another! Getting along, having a great time and being attracted to each other are all very necessary elements to a thriving relationship but if we're not showing up for each other, celebrating and challenging each other to be our best selves, are we truly thriving?
That question or thought alone can create some panic if we're being truly honest with ourselves. I’ve made it a practice to ask myself this every night before bed, to reflect on my actions and feelings of the day. Somedays I feel that I've shown up, that I was the best person I could be and I gave the day all that I had.
