I remember as a kid being as excited about April 1st as I was about Christmas or my birthday. Something interesting was going to happen, unique to this day. There was anticipation to see what pranks or tricks would pop up during the day. Would someone bring a frog on the school bus and surprise the person ahead of them with the little hopper? Would someone receive a fake acceptance letter to a college? Would the news reporter air a fake story just to see if we’d believe it?
Falling in love can have some of these same elements. We may be full of anticipation, surprise, delight or shocked at how the relationship turns out. There are many detours and dead-ends along the way to being in a healthy relationship. Don’t let this day of all days – April Fools – be the place your relationship gets stuck. There is help.
