There may be days in our relationship where I wonder if we really belong together. Much of the faith I once had that we were "so right" for each other seems to have been eaten up by problems, disagreements, and disappointments.
I probably try to banish such doubt from my mind whenever I can, because the thought of this relationship ending seems too painful or scary. What if Im wrong? What if all the sunshine is just around the next corner?
Theres no reason why I shouldnt have such doubts. Its normal, and its human. Having doubts doesnt mean I have to try and predict the future, or prepare for the worst. Faith and doubt are inseparable twins. The doubt I have is an absolutely necessary part of building faith. Its much like the strain my muscles would feel if I was laying stones for a foundation.
Instead of trying to make my doubts go away, Ill listen more closely to them. They can give me clues about my fears, expectations, and needs. Ill use the insight my doubts give me to learn more about myself, and share what I learn with my SO.
