The happiest people don’t worry too much about whether life is fair or not, they just get on with it.
Because guys keep asking me for advice, she took the words out of my mouth!
I went to a beautiful wedding a couple of weeks ago. I was all swept away in the romance of celebrating the love of this wonderful couple until the pastor started talking about, “the commitment to doing the hard work of marriage.”
Marriage is hard work – so gear up. Nothing is easy, especially marriage. Everyone knows it. So, go ahead, sign on the dotted line and commit to a lifetime of very hard work. But it’ll be worth it, hopefully.
If a relationship is always “hard work” that is a sign something is wrong.
Sure, life happens. Conflicts come up. You disagree. You fight and make up. However, if at the end of the day, when you think about your life with your partner and realize, “Wow, this is hard work, but I guess that’s the way it’s suppose to be”, think again. That is not the way it’s suppose to be.
Healthy relationships that are meant to be are the easiest thing in the world to do.(Tweetable!) Without a doubt life without that person in your life would be harder. Relationships that are working make everything easier and more joyful.
If a relationship is hard, it doesn’t mean it’s doomed, but it does mean it needs some fixing. Life is too short to be doing anything you have accepted will just be hard. You get to write a script and create a life you love. When it comes to your relationship, why not aim for easy, natural, and joyful. Healthy is easy.
