As a guest on a new show – “The Daily Help Line“, Brandy Norwood asked the hosts for their advice on having a successful relationship.
One of the co-hosts Spirit said this;
“If there was something that we could bottle, honestly, everybody wants to know the secret. And this is the hard part. You’re not really going to like the answer because I think communication every day is the key. And I honestly think that most people are not willing to do what it takes to make a marriage work, much less a relationship. Most of us, we have to ask the question: Why should I share my passwords with my partner? Why do I have to tell them where I am?
I really think with all sincerity, I really think that relationships are hard, and people don’t want to work hard. You have to tell your partner, ‘If we’re going to do this, I mean literally do this, it needs to be ’til death do us part, not ’til divorce do us part.’ So if divorce is never an option, and your personal happiness always has to be an option, then what you’ll say is ‘Hey listen, we have a problem and I refuse to be unhappy so we need to figure this out. We need to get to resolution. When you take it off the table, then you have the opportunity for resolution, you have the opportunity to forgive, and you have the opportunity for forever. Forgive. You can’t hold on to stuff.”
