Inspired To Be A Better Person

You know you are in true love when the person you are with inspires you to be a better person than you who are. Like the quote from Jack Nicholson in the movie “As Good As It Gets” when he says to Helen Hunt:
“You make me want to be a better man”

This is how it feels to be in true love, your partner compliments your strengths and you want to work on and improve your weaknesses not only for your partner, but for yourself.

My wife and I are working on our fourteenth year together as a couple and toward our eleventh year of marriage, and we have had peaks and valleys in our relationship that would have sunk the titanic had it not been for the strength and durability of our love.

Often I find myself remembering repeatedly why I fell in love with her in the first place and that if it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t be half the man I am today. I can only hope that I have instilled as much positive in her life as she has provided me in my own.
