Slippery affectionate detour: Love and Respect context.

“In the seductive embrace of life, dreams of you enthralls my mind, nothing is forever, but our love for ever” these are common romantic lines.  After a while, we notice changing trend to these love birds. The same people professing so much love can’t stand each other, or  live up to their romantic creed.

What is the issue?

While I cannot provide every answer, I must be blunt to say, there are issues that has sapped them of their affectionate strength, perhaps, it has been so bad to the extent that they have been left dried.

This July, my friend and I decided to read a book titled “Love and Respect” by Emerson Eggerichs.  Although, we’ve read many books this year, what stands out is how the author explained love and respect from a christian perspective. By making a connection with male and female interpretation, he made a case for what holds many healthy  relationships.  While his works has been heavily criticize, there are important nuggets that stands the test of time.

First Nuggets.

  1. Always swallow your pride to say you’re sorry. Being too proud to apologize is never worth it – your relationship suffers for no good benefit.
