|Small things that make a relationship better |
We have been together with Piotr since the first year of undergraduate studies. In August 2015, we celebrated our second wedding anniversary. Is that a lot Sure you say no, but for us time flies very quickly. Together we have been over 7 years. Many times we find ourselves as if we have always been together. Wont?! Monotony?! There is no such thing in our relationship and we will try to make it never happen. The small things make us better.
Common dreams, hobbies or work
You must find something in your relationship that will connect you. They can be shared dreams, hobbies or work. When we started the new project, everyone at work wondered how we could work together, live together and still blog. Everything probably is the result of the fact that we just like to spend time together, we often deal with various issues (related to work or blog), and we also discuss. We talk a lot with each other, although there are also times when you don't even want to talk. It's normal, everyone needs time just for themselves and with each other.
For me, the best way to relax alone is to write a new blog post, play Simsa 4 or read a book. I do these three activities in complete solitude and concentration, even when Piotr is next to me.
How did it happen that we work together?
Returning, however, to work together, because I know that many of you are interested in this issue, our first work together (yes, there were more of them) was a matter of chance.
I worked in a loan company. I didn't feel well there because I had questions of conscience at the back of my head - it wasn't a fair company. I started looking for a job, until I found an intermediary office, i.e. a company that takes over the recruitment process from various companies. When I was going for an interview, I didn't know which company I applied to. My experience corresponded to the advertisement, and the scope of duties seemed interesting.
When I found out about the company at the recruitment interview, I couldn't help smiling. I immediately called Piotr and said that I was going to the second stage to his company.
As it was a very large company, 30 people appeared on the recruitment process, from which I was selected to one of the departments. This is how our first joint work began. We were in various departments, but we worked together. Together we commuted to work, spent breaks and returned home.
When Piotr left this company I felt a kind of "emptiness". Fortunately, it didn't last long, because in Piotr's new company a department was created in which I started working. After almost a year of cooperation, our paths diverged, which I do not regret, because at the end of cooperation I was moved to a department that was completely not my fairy tale.
Eternal gossip, understatement and scandals created by people who took pleasure when something happened to someone. I do not tolerate such a thing in my private life, much less at work. Unfortunately, some just have such a character, and the best we can do is to get away from such people as far as possible. Later we started our business and we stick to it to this day.
At first, only I meditated, and in time persuaded Piotr to meditate with me. For once, try it. Piotr liked it so much that now we regularly meditate together before bedtime. This is our way to wind down after a long day, which is usually full of excitement.
Mutual understanding, patience and success
We don't always understand each other. We both have strong characters (although I'm a goddamn person, and Piotr is the one who stops me) and we have a sharp exchange of opinions. Nevertheless, we often deal with each other. This is a good way, because only mutual understanding and patience can succeed together. Thanks to this, every day the relationship gets better.
