New to this Truth Thursday thing, and because frankly this space needs something. Here’s my first post.
I HAVE LEARNED
that love is hard. It’s fun and rosy, and pink and purple and can be all sorts of colors, it’s great and it’s exciting, but it’s also HARD. The stuff about love you see on TV and read in books that it’s all about romance and cotton candy and all those sweet and mushy things? Well, it’s just 1/4 of the equation. The rest of it is HARD WORK.
You never really realize that until you’re on one end of a relationship and you’re suddenly dealing with quirks and mood swings, priorities, habits, and preferences. Someone said that there’s no such thing as a soul mate or ‘The One’ you’re supposed to end up with. I agree. There’s just this one person you work hard for/with to spend a better life with.
So, what’s yours?
