Sometimes, we forget that we go in fighting together instead of fighting each other. Hard conversations are worth having. Change the posture of your heart and the position of your hands, and you will love what you find out about your love.
Sometimes, you do the hard work to build a bridge. And it may not be the sturdiest of bridges, but once built, you can build something better. You will be stronger. You will be closer. The work will be worth it.
I think one of the most romantic things a person can ever do is choose to stay. Stay through sickness and health. Stay when all is rich and well and stay when all is poor and sad. Stay through the heartache. Stay through the ruts, the busyness, the learning curves. Stay through the magic and the intervals of lightheartedness.
Stay for life.
I’ll take an old love over fireworks any day.
