Confessions of a Single Woman: I’m grateful he supports my dreams.

does your signficant other support your dreams?

Does your significant other support your dreams? It’s one of the many traits I love about Daniel. I could tell him some far fetched idea and he’d root me on. He’d go and do research on how I could accomplish my latest goal and he’d come back to me later on and tell me all about it. Did you know … Telling him my dreams and goals in life also helps keep me accountable. If I say I’m going to do something he’ll call me or send me a text to ask how it went. It’s so important to have your significant other’s support when you’re reaching for the stars.

People always tell me that marriage is hard work. However, its easier when you and your husband/wife work as a team. You’ll each have your strengths and weaknesses but at the end of the day you’ll balance each other out. Yin and Yang. It is important to see if your significant other supports you early in your relationship. It can be something as small as listening to you when you need someone to talk to.

If you feel like your significant other does not support you now, it may not change once you are married. Believe them when they show you who they are.  When relationships are new to us we can ignore the warning signs that tell us to move on. If they shoot down every idea or goal you want to pursue please consider reevaluating your relationship.

Support is a two way street AND can come in many forms . There’s verbal support or financial support. At the end of the day you want your significant other to be the person you can’t wait to tell how your dreams are progressing. If they’re not going the way you want, your significant other can give you a pep talk or perhaps redirect you. Sometimes talking it out with Daniel is just the thing I need to get back on track. 

Does your significant other support your dreams?

Until then,

Arelis! Great post! I am so glad you have a supportive partner! It’s the best tool you can have in this life. I am a FIRM believer of the thought that people tell you who they really are, you just have to believe them when they say it! I was happy to see you post about that! A lot of time, women tend to ignore what is being told to them and think “I can save/fix/help this one!” It’s our downfall! 🙂

I so agree with quote Jenny! People really do show us who they are. Relationships are hard work. Enough work that we should not be adding “fixing/helping/saving” someone. We can be supportive to a person like that sure, but should we be dating them with the expectation that we won’t give up until its done. If the other person really wants to change or be with you, then they will show it. Like you said though, women and I know men who do the same, they’ll ignore it because they’re into the person. Can a relationship like that work out?… maybe. However, if that support is lacking you’re having to pep them up and yourself. I would hope that we pick a partner that helps us out or is at least willing and supportive! Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts Jenny!

Oh, yes. Having a supportive partner can make all the difference. My husband is supportive of my dreams, which helps boost me on when the going gets tough or challenging.

This is what I hear Sheryl. Daniel is definitely a keeper! I’m happy that you have a supportive husband! We all need the occasional boost! Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us!

I never realized how important a supportive significant other was until I found one- it can really keep you motivated- Mr. Forever cheered me through my first 5k and it made all the difference! Including this post in my weekly links round up today! 🙂

Hey Chelle! Love your website btw! Happy that you have a supportive significant other! I’ll be running/walking my first 5k in October and he’s been cheering me on through the learning how to run process. Since he’s a runner I listen when he gives me tips/advice/warnings! Thanks for stopping by and I am beyond thrilled that you included me in your weekly links round up today!

The most important thing you said is that if he is not supportive before you marry, he will not magically change after marriage.

Yes! So many people try and talk themselves into thinking things will be different after we’re married. Yes marriage is a sacred bond but does that guarantee your relationship will miraculously be perfect? No. Thanks so much for stopping by Janeane and sharing your thoughts with us!

It is really so important to have a partner that supports your dreams. I’m glad you have that in Danny! I think it was one of the things that connected me to Terrence the most. He is so supportive and encouraging, and it certainly relieves stress to know that he has my back!

I agree, when you feel like you’re by yourself on different matters, or you need that pick me up, and don’t get it, that can be very discouraging. The people in our lives, aside from our significant others, should be pushing us up, even if its something as simple as a simple cheer. I’m happy that you have that in Terrence! It is a great thing to have that going into your marriage! Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us Brandi!

I recently had a friend who just got in a new relationship and was scared that this may intersect with his goals. I told him to let her know about them and see if she supports him. She may support him and he may like her more for that. But if she doesn’t then maybe he has found his answer. Anyways, thank you for sharing your thoughts. I enjoy reading them.

That was great advice Burton. You don’t have to be in love with someone to support their dreams/goals/ideas! She’ll reveal from the beginning of the relationship what kind of partner she’ll be. I hope she supports him on his goals! Thanks for stopping by Burton, I appreciate your thoughts!
