Is Your Love Tank on E?

In January most of us hit the ground running, aimed to make good on our goals and resolutions for the Ney Year. We were armed with good information, accountability partners, and a plan.

It is now May. You’ve actually worked hard and have achieved some of your personal goals but because you’ve been busy with life, you might have forgotten to stop for a refill on your love tank. If the closer you get to your goals, the further away from your mate Love Tankyou feel  you are probably neglecting a key emotional need: LOVE.

My husband and I were talking the other day about life and relationships. He asked me if women equate sex with love. I had to think about it for a moment. When I was younger and even up until I got married, when I thought about love I thought about sex.

I wonder how many of us are filling up with sex instead of love. If you think about it, sex is easy. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have the issue with pre-marital sex or loveless, sexual relationships. Compared to sex, love is hard. Love is a daily, deliberate choice that results in action. It is work so it is energy depleting. You need to receive it so that you can give it. In order for love between people to work it has to be reciprocal.

Is your tank empty? The best way to re-fuel is to pour into others. In this case, try performing a loving act to your mate. What are some things he enjoys? If you fill him up he will do the same for you.

What do you do when you’re on E?
