A psychologist showed her audience a glass of water. Everyone was expecting she will ask the usual question, “Is the glass half filled or half empty?”Here's the video.
Instead, she asked the question, “How heavy is the glass of water?”Her audience started giving her numbers.
None of the numbers were correct. Instead she said, “The actual weight of the glass has no real significance. What does matter is how long I hold the glass.”
“The glass will not weigh too much if I hold it only for a few minutes.”
Misunderstandings in your relationship will not matter much if you immediately address them. Talk about them and commit to come to a win-win solution. Do not be afraid to compromise to make your relationship happy and lasting.
“If I hold it for an hour, I’ll eventually start cramping up in my arm. If I hold it for a whole day, my arm will probably numb up and feel paralyzed.”
If you don’t talk about your issues and avoid each other, you will be causing a strain in your relationship. The stress will soon hurt you and your relationship. If you don’t find a way to relieve yourself of the stress and anxiety in your relationship, admit it or not, it will be in your thoughts. It will be in your waking hours or even in your sleep. Soon the thought and the agony will paralyze you; you will not be able to do anything. It will be like your shadow following you wherever you go; always in your head bugging you.
This is when your relationship crumbles. It will then be impossible to save it.
Remember to let go of whatever stresses you. Remember to deal with your relationship issues immediately. Before going to bed, put away the stress. Talk about your problems and agree to a solution. Don’t carry your glass throughout the evening and into the night. Remember to put down your glass of water.
