What is the meaning of a heartbeat? In short it’s the very essence of life… with each beat and pump, blood gets pushed through our bodies. This action is often taken for granted because it comes to us just as easy as inhaling and exhaling.
I tend to look at relationships like a heartbeat, I want a relationship that has a healthy EKG reading. I understand that a relationship isn’t going to be roses 24/7 but I also understand that it shouldn’t be “just okay” or fighting 24/7. I think a healthy relationship reads exactly like an EKG, you have highs… you have lows… and you have some constants. I think there needs to be a healthy level of emotional push and pull (yes by emotional push and pull I mean drama) because it helps you feel alive. (not too much, just some) More importantly I think it’s important to keep that heartbeat healthy after years 1 -3, after you’ve known each other for a long time.
I think 10 out of 10 people would rather be crazy about the person they’re with than indifferent. I’d think you’d want your face to light up when you talk about the person you’re with, not a shoulder shrug and a blank expression.
I don’t think enough people take their relationship EKG and they take that heartbeat for granted.
When’s the last time you took the pulse of your relationship?
