Imagine a box.
It’s sturdy and strong, just like it should be.
Imagine that your relationship was like that box.
Sturdy and strong, and bright with hope.
You’re both giving 100% of yourselves, working in sync to make it great.
For a while, you’re really, really happy.
Nothing can go wrong.
Till it does
It starts small.
A little thing here, another little thing there.
You realize that something isn’t quite right, and you try to solve it by ramping up your 100% to 150%.
But the problem starts growing bigger
Till it fills that box.
And somehow, you find yourself pushed all the way out.
