“Doing something for yourself gives motivation but doing something for others gives meaning.” -Maxime Lagace
It’s been a long week so far and it’s been tough for the both of us. TJ hasn’t been feeling well and we’re both busy from work and with the wedding plans. All of this excitement and exhaustion had me think about how I can help my other half. Even when I myself am worn out and tired, I know TJ has been too so I want to help out. Sometimes helping your significant other or other loved ones you may live with around the house has a big impact. It may not seem like it, but helping them out by making them a lunch for the next day or taking the trash out shows that person you’re considerate of their time. It shows that you are conscious of how they may be feeling lately and want to alleviate their stress. When you do a little task that you know they’re dreading doing and you want to help them out, if you do it instead, most of the time they’ll be extremely grateful and you would even feel joy from helping them out. It feels good to work as a team in the house and help each other out with tasks. Tonight I thought about TJ more instead of myself as he’s tired and feeling ill. We all have tough days and sometimes people need some help. I feel good about letting TJ know he doesn’t have to worry about having to do these things and let him take a breather. If he’s happy, I’m happy. I know he would do the same for me and it’s important to put yourself in your significant other’s shoes sometimes. TJ would do the same for me and you do these acts out of love! As TJ always says, teamwork makes the dream work!
