It’s true that as a married couple, you will learn to love the same things, want to pursue the same endeavors and make future plans together, AND with each other in mind as you do so. On the other hand, you have something called a “life passion” that maybe something only you want to seek out. The same goes for your hubby.
For this, let’s define what it is, and what you can do to take it forward on your own while letting your significant other not be outcasted but the opposite.
What Is A Life Passion?
A Life Passion varies from person to person. It’s that one thing that inspires, motivates, and challenges you. Of course, that’s not to say that your hubby isn’t all those qualities. They are.
To clear the lines drawn, a passion-hobby doesn’t have to be turned into a career. If it is, then okay. There’s ‘no issue with that. But most of the time, it’s a different branch that sprouts a different manner than work.
Moreover, it’s is about you and what you want to do (or are already doing) that keeps you who you are and makes you who you are.
It’s could be anything within any range from creating art, doing sports, going hiking and being in the outdoors, being on the road and driving for leisure, making music, writing, carpentry, the list goes on. Many times, because it’s something individuals love doing so much and often enough, it’s dubbed as passion-hobbies.
How This Helps Strengthen Your Marriage
A happy you is a motivated you who’ll be the best you can be in your relationship. And a life passion is that thing which contributes to such happiness. Remember, it starts with you. Don’t expect your relationship to be rainbows and butterflies on its own. YOU have to work towards rainbows and butterflies. YOU have to build moments of happiness, and continue to do so regularly, and consistently.
You can let your better half into this world of yours hand have them see why you’re inclined towards this passion-hobby. Likewise, you don’t have to shut them out. After all, it’s a way for them to get to know you even better and appreciate, and ultimately, love the things that make you “you.”
On the other side of the coin, if you’re aware of what your sweetheart’s life passion is, support them. Cheer them on towards growing their skills or talents. By the way, if you and your honeybunch have the same passion-hobby, that’s great! You can easily share experiences and learnings with each other. Still, if you don’t have the same life passion, that’s great, too. You can inquire about it and have them enlighten you regarding why this activity or talent is something that’s a part of who they are.
If You Already Know What Your Life Passion Is…
Continue with it. Grow it. Learn. At the same time, be supportive of your significant other in his or her passion-hobby. Support each other. That’s what marriage is about, so keep doing it.
