Cartoon of a bearded lady and a man. The man says, “Face it, Helen! You’re not the same gal I married.”
Change is going to happen, whether you want it or not. That’s just the nature of things. Some of us will gain hair where we don’t want it and others will long for the days when we had hair.
If you celebrated any wedding anniversary, then you simply aren’t the married to the same person you once were. We all change.
That’s a good thing. Celebrate the fact even our relationships change. Nothing stays the same. If an organism is alive, it is either growing or dying.
Take the time to make sure your relationship is growing even as the both of you are growing. Invest in your marriage like you would tend a garden.
Your partner probably isn’t the same person you married. And come to think about it, she may be very glad you aren’t the same person she married!
