One of the most important elements to a successful, healthy, happy long-term relationship is compatible life goals.
You and you boyfriend need to be on the same page with regard to careers, kids, location, and plans for the future.And it’s not productive or helpful stress; your “encouragement” will backfire.Instead, there is only one thing you can do that motivate your boyfriend to grow or succeed…and that one thing is to accept him exactly the way he is.If he isn’t ambitious or motivated now, you don’t have to abandon all hope for the future.If your boyfriend doesn’t have goals, you don’t necessarily have to end the relationship – unless you’re angry and frustrated because your boyfriend doesn’t have time for you because he’s focused on unhealthy or foolish friends and activities.He could be my stabilizing force and I could be the star!
