How to Make Your Partner Love You Again

We might have experienced difficulties in the relationship with our partner. Distance, unkindness, distraction, not listening, too busy, and much more.

I read this story and I want to share it with you. I think it has a powerful lesson to teach us. Sometimes things are easier than we think but we cannot find a solution because we are too distracted by the complications that our mind creates. Of course, there is no magic wand. There is a good will to improve yourself and your relationship.

A woman begged a shaman for a potion that would “make her husband love her again”. She explained that her husband used to be warm, loving, and laughed easily. But he was sent to fight in the war. Since his return he was angry, and distant. The more she tried to hug him, and draw him back to her, the worse it became. The shaman was her last hope.

The shaman listened patiently to the woman’s story. When she was finished he said, “I think I can help you. I will make you a love potion, but you must go find one of the ingredients.”. She said she would. He told her that the love potion must contain a whisker from a live tiger. This was the only way he could help make her husband love her again. She was distraught. “How can I possibly get a whisker from a beast as fierce and powerful as a tiger?” The shaman shrugged and left her to tears.

The next day she went to a place where she had once seen a tiger. On that day she saw nothing more that monkeys fighting in the trees and birds flying in the air. On the second day, she stayed a little longer and found a comfortable place to sit. But she did not see the tiger yet.

Weeks passed. One morning she sensed her presence before she saw her. She didn’t move but the tiger saw her and ran away. A week after the woman saw her again. Curious, the tiger stopped running away.

Finally, after months of bringing the tiger good things to eat and ever so slowly reaching out to pet her, she finally was so comfortable with the woman that she fell asleep under her stroking hand. Once the tiger was asleep, the woman took a very sharp knife and gently cut one single whisker from the tiger’s muzzle.

The next day she brought the whisker to the shaman, and asked for the potion that would make her husband love her again. The shaman said “You do not need any potion, but keep the knowledge you have gained, and your husband will start loving you again.”
