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.

Joint meditation

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.

    I really like the idea of ​​joint meditation! 🙂

    I agree that you need to constantly look after your relationship. We do not have a joint work, the hobby also each of us has different, and dreams ... probably also differ, although there are also common ones. We've been together 13 years and I hope we will always be so happy.

    Beautiful text! I admire couples who can work together and not bite 😉

      Oh, sometimes we have a sharper exchange to pass. It's obvious that we don't always agree on everything wszystkim However, now I can't imagine working without Piotr 🙂

      Only that we met in college, and only after some time we accidentally started working together 🙂

    You described it all beautifully 🙂
    I also really like playing Sims 😉

    Dominika, I was interested in the paragraph about meditation. How do you practice it? For some, meditation is even staring out the window with a cup of coffee - just to have time for yourself and delve into your thoughts. How do you explore meditation together?

      Agnieszka, our common practice is that at the same time we are launching the 'fully present' meditation session of Elżbieta Krzyżaniak-Smolińska.

      We do it every evening before bedtime. This meditation session makes it easier for us to fall asleep and allows for a peaceful sleep. When we do not meditate at bedtime, we feel the difference in the quality of sleep.

      Dominika, yesterday evening I turned on Mrs. Elżbieta Krzyżaniak-Smolińska and fell asleep after her. What makes me wonder, I had very strange dreams and I remember all of them after waking up. Today I will also do a screening because it is a great way to calm down before going to bed.

      Great, I'm very happy 🙂 Unfortunately, not all meditation sessions on the Elżbieta channel are of good quality. In addition, 'fully present' is the shortest meditation session. Perfect for me 🙂

    Great entry 🙂 Such a relationship and cooperation is a treasure 🙂 And with this loan company is really sorry. Reality sometimes saddens 🙂

    A beautiful entry 🙂 I value shared interests and passions that I share with my partner, but I have some resistance to working together or running a joint business.

    I wish you many years together 🙂

    Very interesting story 🙂
    Unfortunately, in loan companies you have to leave your conscience at home 🙁
    But the entry is great and forbearance in a relationship is a must

      Everyone has a stage in their life that they regret. Although no ... I don't regret working there. I learned a lot and I know that I never want to work like this again niejsze The most important thing is to do what you love!

    Thanks for sharing your story.
    It's really nice to read that life is going on well for someone.
    Despite how you write "character difference" 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 21 February 2017 / 15: 57

      Character differences are not bad. If we agreed on everything, it would be boring! 🙂

    "I worked in a company related to loans. I didn't feel good there because I had questions of conscience in the back of my head" - I give a big plus for this confession.

    Very interesting entry Dominiko. Together with MM we have been together for 7 years this year in September and 5 years will pass as we are married. We have other professions, we come from other continents, we grew up in other traditions and religions, but we have a lot in common, we rely on each other, help and motivate each other ... the feeling that unites us is unique, strong and true ... only true love can stand the test of time and everyday challenges. On the occasion of Valentine's Day, I wish you all the best and many happy years spent together Dominika and Piotr - I cordially greet 🙂

      Your relationship is a huge motivation 🙂 Everyday life is definitely a challenge and a lot of couples at this stage depend on. It's fun to meet even every day and then come back to your home. Living together is no longer so colorful - there are socks falling everywhere, household chores, etc. then the ride without a handhold begins 😉

      However, the most important thing is to find good points and learn to cooperate at home. I mean, of course, the division of duties. It is normal that a woman is also tired after work and does not have to do everything herself after a hard day 🙂

      Thank you! We also wish you and your husband many years together 🙂
