You Can Enjoy Passion and Friendship in the Same Long-Term Relationship

You Can Enjoy Passion and Friendship in the Same Long-Term Relationship

If you are in a long-term love relationship or marriage, you might wonder if you can truly “have it all?”In our work we often find the following situations which spark this question…

–A relationship may be strong in compatibility or friendship but, over the long haul passionate moments may be few and far between.

–The connection may be limited to a sense of taking care of or being taken care of by one’s partner on a physical, emotional, or financial level.

–Passion is sporadic and not rooted in connection.

–While there may be deep love, the individuals are going in different directions with little or no passion or connection.

We’ll consider again the question, “Can you have it all”? Can love, passion, friendship, and connection all exist in the same long-term relationship?

We affirm that YOU CAN have it all in one relationship. Here’s why…

We enjoy love, passion, friendship and connection in our relationship and others do too.

So, if it’s possible, how can it happen for you?

In the early stages of our relationship, we decided that we wanted to enjoy together all of these elements–love, passion and connection, as well as deep friendship.

Neither of us experienced this in past relationships and we committed to this decision. The pain of not having all of these elements was greater than the challenges of “having it all.”

This strong commitment, for us, means that we do whatever is necessary to move out of disconnection to connection as quickly as possible. This action by itself keeps our passion lit and our friendship and love thriving.

Whether or not you are in a long-term relationship, we suggest that you examine your beliefs about what is possible in an intimate committed relationship.

Consider whether your beliefs about the possibility of having love, passion, connection and friendship serve you or not.

If your beliefs don’t serve you, perhaps past experiences are preventing you from something better. Maybe you have moved from one relationship to another not feeling successful in any of them. Regardless of what you discover about your beliefs, we encourage you to open up to the possibility that it is possible for you to have what you want.

We invite you to live your life to its fullest and most positive potential.
