Still, it’s important not to overlook the positives. The next time you’re feeling down because things aren’t as passionate as they used to be, take a deep breath and ask yourself these questions:
- Do I not love my partner any more, or is just a different flavor of love?
- What rewards do I get in having this person in my life to whom I feel so attached?
These questions may aggravate your discontent, and then again they may not. They may get you feeling grateful—and take the edge off the painful truth that, at the end of the day, we’re all citizens of Middle Earth.
