Every so often we receive emails about Global Glue Project that act as the oxygen we breathe to survive. Global Glue is a passion project, one that is fueled by our belief that these stories matter and have the potential to impact the world, but until we started receiving that feedback, we didn’t actually know if it was true. So thank you, to those of you who have taken the time to let us know we are on the right path, that Glue love stories matter and are in fact impacting your lives.
The Global Glue Project isn’t about advice: we don’t have “15 Tips That’ll Save Your Relationship”, because every relationship, like every person, is unique. What we want to do is share stories, real tales of how people have managed to maintain a relationship through the good and bad, how love wins with work, how honesty matters, and how commitment is more than a buzzword. You aren’t going to read or watch our stories and say “well, we only have to do X, Y, and Z to stay together.” That isn’t how relationships work.
We want you to be inspired. We want you to know that it is possible to make things work, that other people have, despite obstacles thrown in their way. When we hear from you, we know that sharing these stories, which have deeply inspired us, do the same for you.
We wanted to share some of these notes with you:
“We are great fans of your work – watching it together via skype became a weekly habit that strengthens our relationship across countries and keeps us close.”
“Thank you for what you are doing with Global Glue. It is so refreshing and encouraging to see couples making it work and to see people like yourself trying and succeeding at making a positive change in people, couples and society as a whole. Thank you.”
“My boyfriend and I have ‘religious challenges’ as well so it was interesting to hear how other couples cope with it.
“While I am at it: It would like to thank you for taking all the time and effort to conduct these interviews and spread them all around the globe. This is precious work! I have told so many people of it already… ”do you remember the project I supported where they interview couples on what makes them stick together….” :). I just wanted to let you know that you do make a difference and that it is wonderful that you do!”
“Your project is not only heartwarming, but inspiring. As a woman who had given up on love…then found it on a street corner I know every love has it’s own story waiting to be told. Have fun, be well and keep warming our hearts!”
“Thank you, very inspiring. I feel like when I don’t know how to keep going (in my own relationship), I can go here.”
We love hearing from you! Sharing stories among community matters. Together Wins!
