I don’t subscribe to the notion that relationships are hard.
Relationships are built on effort and the desire to be and stay connected to your partner. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been involved with your loved one… if you’re reading this post, they mean a lot to you. But being happy in a relationship doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for improvement.
The perfect couple does not exist and that’s okay. We are made greater by our unique personalities and our personal strengths. How boring life and relationships would be if we were all the same. We have to remember that we were individuals long before we became the other half in a relationship – which means there will always be adjustments, concessions, and forgiveness to be given.
There is nothing great in life that comes easy. Your relationship is not exempt from this truth.
