The Footsteps That Paved My Path – Footstep 23

“If you think you know everything, you know nothing.” Two years ago I went through a personal experience that made me believe in this quote for Laozi. A couple from our friends invited my husband and me to a camp for couples. Shortly notified, we felt hesitant to join especially that our relation was very good so why would we join, we thought. However, not having other commitments we decided to go for a change. Spending the weekend with other couples, learning from their experiences and sharing ours was very inspiring. We felt closer than ever and we came back looking at our marriage from a different perspective, a deeper one.

During the months that followed our dear friends invited us to join a group of couples under their leadership. We met regularly and every time they exposed us to a new concept related to marriage. It was my first time there to learn about ‘The languages of love‘ and hear about ‘His needs and her needs‘. Meeting after the other we started to feel the change in our relationship and understood that no matter how good one might think, there will always be room for progress and improvement. 

From this experience my friends taught us how marriage is something sacred. And how life becomes a lot more meaningful and enjoyable when couples act as if they are one soul.

I so much appreciate and cherish the four feet of my friends on my path. They’ve done me a service that I will never be able to pay it back.
