Two is better than one

How could I disagree when two is really better than one? Last night was something we’ve never done in the long time we’ve been together. We’ve talked about each other’s life. We’ve talked about the smooth things that made our lives swift and the rough things that agitates  each other’s heart. There are things we can fight on our own and still conquer but there are fights that needs someone to fight with. Battles fought alone makes you feel independent and well skilled but battles you fight with someone makes you more like a human. No man is an island right?

For people with trust issues, this takes a lot of nerve to do. Because for this people, sharing lives is easy until you’re messing up on things and you can’t hide the battles within you. You’ve got to expose and quit covering up the struggles you can never hide! Sometimes, the relationship that don’t work out are those that we deem unnecessary in us, but relationships we’re meant to build each other. And for people finding it difficult to release trust, it will take a habitual reminder to expose the darkest content we shamefully cover up. That constant decision to resolve to share lives with people that will build you up and and not tear you down. Trusting is a decision you make not an emotion you feel. There are times that we feel like trusting and there are those that we feel like holding back for ourselves. In times like this, Isolation won’t heal. You need to expose the things you feel like hiding. 

Here’s why Two is better than One:

Two is better than one because they have a good reward for their efforts

 It’s better to have a partner than to go it alone. What good would it be to have everything and no one to genuinely share your everything with? I bet it must have been completely aweful life! πŸ’”

 (Ecclesiastes 4:9)

For if either falls, his companion can lift him up, but pity the one who falls without another to lift him up.

A time will come when you would need somebody to lift you up, or someone who would be there to listen to the groans you feel within. It’s okay to lose your face than lose yourself in the long run. It’s better to lose your pride than to look back one day and notice no one walking with you in life. Don’t dare to lose everything because regret is real as the existence of hell. Instead I dare you to drop your vulnerability to the people you trusted the most and not to anywhere or anyone else that doesn’t protect your deepest thoughts. Have someone who will not rally around your weakness but instead somebody who will always be there discreetingly protecting you. 

 (Ecclesiastes 4:10)

Also, if two lie down together, they can keep warm; but how can one person alone keep warm?

Intimacy is not some worldly authored evil thing. But intimacy is a biblical union that has been tainted by the evil forces of this world. Because when intimacy is done outside the bounds of marriage, it will leave you a life of condemnation. Intimacy was meant for enjoyment not for condemnation.

Warm your heart with love- perfect love because when you give this love out, this will warm others in need. Make no mistake, perfect love is not something innate to us but this comes from God, Someone who loves you and me perfectly despite our imperfections. His love will give us the ability to love beyond what we ever think of or imagine. And unless we allow His perfect love to overwhelm us, we will never be a people that will overwhelm each other with His love. 

 (Ecclesiastes 4:11)

And if someone overpowers one person, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not easily broken.

Your strength will increase when you have friends, family or anyone you dearly love who will motivate you every step of the way, but sometimes the issue is not them encouraging us but that us allowing them to strengthen us. Remember, with a friend you can face the worst. 

 (Ecclesiastes 4:12)

This is for anyone who’ve neglected to treasure one of the most valuable gift you’ll ever receive in your lifetime. I dare you to open up your heart and let someone you trust come in your life. Let someone be accountable of you and in the same way, be accountable of somebody!

Happy Valentines Day! β€πŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’šπŸ’™
