Meera and Jimmy’s Platinum Love Story
Meera and Jimmy first met at a mutual friend’s birthday party where they exchanged contact numbers. A spontaneous conversation ensued on chat. Intrigued by Meera Jimmy asked her out and on their first date itself, they hit it off! Meera shares, “Jimmy’s thoughtfulness and vulnerability left me awestruck. I think from the very first date, we felt a sense of belonging towards each other as we talked about our dreams and the way we approach life. We realized that despite coming from different cultures, we shared the same values.”
Working in one of the most fast-paced and busiest cities in the world, New York City, Meera and Jimmy remain unfazed by the constant hustle. Instead, they focus on being grateful for the bond they share which has led them to savour the present. Meera says, “Living in New York City, a place we’ve always dreamed of while doing what you love is absolutely amazing. However, it is very easy to get caught up in the race when you’re surrounded by so many luxuries and distractions. And I must admit, there was a point in our lives when we had a similar mindset. Here, life can easily be about the next big thing – a bigger condo, a swanky car, the next big career leap etc.!
Our relationship has allowed us to learn to focus on what is truly important. As we’ve navigated through the ebbs and flows of our personal and professional lives together, we as a team have learnt to cherish what we have in our lives right now. Right from the love we share, the confidence to be vulnerable with each other, our life in our apartment and the delicious meals we can enjoy together.”
Jimmy adds, “While we both work hard in our own way, our goals don’t include materialistic outcomes. Instead, we make a conscious effort of focussing on improving our skills.” Sharing how Jimmy has helped her grow as a person Meera says, “I met Jimmy in my early twenties when my sole focus was on the next big leap. But being with him and seeing the way he approaches his work changed my perspective. His motivation has never been a promotion, a pay rise or the glamour that comes with it. He has always made improving his skills the first priority. As I started observing him and being with him, I emulated this way of thinking. In retrospect, it has definitely changed me for the better. Today, as I go about my professional life, I take up challenges and new opportunities with a view of improving myself and not just from a financial standpoint .”
Their bond has also spurred them towards being open-minded individuals who are able to express themselves fearlessly. Jimmy shares, “When you’re working in a fast-paced competitive environment it’s pretty easy to build a wall around yourself to keep people out. Unconsciously, these walls, somehow, are also propped up in your personal life. With Meera, I made a point to keep myself open and she reciprocated the same way, which led us to develop a seamless rapport that has endured throughout the years. To have your life partner as your confidante is an incredible gift. It is one of the facets of our relationship which I cherish the most.”
Relationships come with a learning curve. For Meera and Jimmy, it’s been no different as they’ve learnt to make rough patches smoother by constant communication. They share, “Of course, we have our tiffs and disagreements. But as we’ve grown together, we’ve also learnt to find our way around it in a productive manner. There are no cold wars, long silences, or mixed signals. We concentrate on listening to each other and actually absorbing what the other person is trying to say. After understanding each other’s perspective, we take actions to improve rather than leave loose threads with hasty reassurances. This has been a game-changer for us as it has enabled us to understand each other while evolving emotionally.”
Building each other up and grateful for the joys their bond has ushered into their lives, Meera and Jimmy’s love forms a circle of strength around them helping them be the best version of themselves.
