Starting a new relationship or being in a longterm relationship can be a pretty daunting task. After all, relationships come with a lot of unchartered territory and many unforeseen trials and tribulations. Often times we give up long before our love trains have even left the stations. Sometimes we call in the quits well before the conductor has even yelled: “all aboard.” Truth is, we fear the unknown. We fear opening up our hearts to experiencing something that moves us out of our comfort zone. It is also often true that we fear most of all the ever-looming possibility of disappointment.
