Jesus once said…
You’ve probably seen this verse relating to men in the service, and now I want to share the verse in relation to laying down your life for the best friend you’ll ever have— your spouse. If you haven’t seen this video, it’s totally worth watching. If you’ve ever asked yourself what true love really means, and you’re left with vague answers, this is the clearest answer: it means putting another’s needs and life above your own.

In a relationship, you really do need to be selfless and make sure you are meeting the needs of your best friend and partner. I do believe though, that there are times that you should be a bit selfish and revitalize yourself to make sure that you can be 100% for your partner.
