I thought many times to write an article on relationships. But after reading this little article from Sr. Richard Branson ‘My definition of Love’, I thought I couldn’t say it better. I found it so inspiring that I wanted to share it straight away with You.
Here is what he has to say about his relationship with his wife Joan.
“Having spent 40 years with Joan by my side I have had the courage to do so many things others would deem impossible. I have been able to take risks – that have been fundamental to my success in business – which I probably wouldn’t have dared to make without Joan’s love.
She has taught me that love shouldn’t just squeeze your heart, it should cradle it. It should prop you up, not bring you down. It should make you strong, not weak. The way I see it, love is a steadfast boat that allows you to make safe yet exciting passage across wild seas.
Love should be supportive; it should lift us and inspire us to be the best possible person we can be. Because if you can be the best version of yourself, your partner will benefit too.
That’s the cornerstone of a great relationship – wanting the best for and bringing out the best in each other. ” Richard Branson
