I can’t remember where it was now, some chicknet* page that was promising relationship advice to the emotionally crippled or somewhere like that, but anyway there was a wizened woman spouting her advice about how to get a relationship that worked year after year.
You’ve both got to give it 100%. Give it your all. Just giving 50/50 doesn’t get you 100%.
And I had that long thought that only the math-challenged among us can have – that of how can 50+50 not equal 100. Ideas anyone?
(All I’m hearing it crickets so I’m feeling a small amount of comfort in not being the only math-challenged one on the innernets.)
And after pondering it a while longer I realised that because there are two of you, you’ve got to divide it by two to see what each of you get. 50+50 divided by 2 is 50.
Half. You only get half a relationship when each of you only put half in.
Both of you have to put in 100% all the time. That way, you both get 100% out of it.
Food for thought methinks. Have you been putting your 100% in?
* Chicknet is like a chickflick -webpages full of drivel but we still love to while away the hours entertaining ourselves with it.
