April 6, 2017 – Relationship Talk With Nigerian Actress Susan Peters 

An interesting article by Nollywood actress Susan Peters on love and relationship.

I have discovered that love doesn’t guarantee the success of a relationship. Love cannot help you stick to one person all years round, and on the other hand, cheating isn’t always a product of not loving your partner. In fact, loving someone doesn’t guarantee not falling in love with someone else.
Relationships work out mostly because of our head not our heart. It works out because of our emotional maturity, empathetic intelligence and self discipline because, time will come when you’ll see more beautiful, handsome, romantic, intelligent, sexy, rich, curvy and God fearing people than the one you’re in a relationship with.

In those times, love will not help you; self control will help you, emotional intelligence will come to your rescue and commitment will keep you going.
With those characteristics, no matter how you feel for someone else, the person you’re committed to will rank first in your life.

You think happily married people don’t see better people than the ones they married? You think they don’t feel funny sometimes? You think they don’t catch feelings? They do!

But understanding that commitment is greater than feelings is the great arsenal that do destroy that impulse.

You can fall in love with anyone, but building a relationship takes absolutely more than what attracted you to them and takes more than love.

We are too fond of loving when it’s convenient and sweet. We are too fond of loving when love is there but that can only last for just the first 3-6 months of the relationship. After then, you’ll realise that the feelings have dropped, it’s now your responsibility to make it work, not love’s responsibility.

Relationships cannot be readymade. You have to build it and it’s never always about love, it requires commitment and intelligence. On the long run in marriages, it’s not just love that keeps them together forever, it’s determination and commitment.

Everyone falls in love; it takes little or no effort to do that. But staying in love? Building a relationship? Only the strong and committed ones do that.

That’s why we must find that one person and commit to that one, discipline yourself bridle your emotions.

  1. Susan what a super write up! this is the most brilliant message I have read about relationship and keeping it. You have made my day on this your write up. I never knew you to be this intelligent. I am now your fan and follower. You are full up-stairs. I agree with you in all your comments. “Everyone falls in love; it takes little or no effort to do that. but staying in love? Building a relationship? Only the strong and committed ones do that”. LOVE YOU BABY GIRL AND I WISH YOU A RELATIONSHIP YOU WILL TRUST AND LOVE TO COMMIT YOURSELF INTO.

  2. i couldn’t agree any better with you Susan. This really is the whole truth. It is not really because we don’t see all other beautiful and handsome out there, its just commitments. And to add to that, i think sometimes people still stay in a relationship or marriage because of fate. Meaning, you wish to leave but you feel trapped, then you end up enduring your marriage instead of enjoying it. It sucks, doesn’t it?
