Do You Have What It Takes To Be A Power Couple? #relationship goals
Sure, you might not be as rich and famous as Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, but you might share some of the same traits needed to be a power couple!
Being a power couple is not just about good looks, wealth, and career success.
It’s about having a teammate mentality – a “we” rather than “me” mentality that allows you to create a solid foundation.
Urban Dictionary defines Power Couples as: “A relationship between two people where one is as cool as the other.
They are just as impressive and fun to meet as they are when they are together.
Neither depends on the other for their feelings of self-worth – they know in their hearts that they are just as valuable to the world as the other.
Beautiful, optimistic, and shine a light in the world that people recognize that goes beyond a normal relationship.
In a power couple, if one person is flawed, the other person compensates for their weaknesses in strength.
Together they are the epitome of what one would want in a relationship.
They encourage goodness in the world and make it a better place by being together.”
To me, Aristotle’s quote: “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts” seems true.
We all have our weaknesses and vulnerabilities, but in a powerful relationship, you feel like you can face anything life throws at you.
It’s when two confident and secure people, who realize their worth, come together to dominate life.
A powerful couple recognizes each other’s strengths and weaknesses, respects each other’s independence, and balances that with a healthy dependence and interdependence on each other.
On my first date with my husband, he told me that he believes in self-actualization and strives to reach his full potential.
He said that every day he likes to do something that challenges him and allows him to be a better person.
As a psychotherapist, I had a geeky moment when this handsome piece of evil sat down across from me and spoke insightfully about Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and the ways in which he wants to grow, excel, and achieve.
It was clear he would make a good teammate, and I knew that by aligning our drive and thirst for life, we could thrive together.
