Relationships

require work.

From both people, constant everyday work. And that is a lot.

And you run the risk of being with someone who gets tired of the work. Who isn’t willing to make the effort, and you can’t force them to want to. You’re stuck on the outside, wondering why you were willing to make it work and they weren’t.

It happens to the best of us. And it’s scary. How can you put your faith into another relationship when you have seen, in varying degrees, people just give up.

Marriages ended.

2 years ended. 3 years ended. 4 years ended. 18 years ended. 26 years ended.

Its the work. Its hard. To love someone and think about someone else everyday, thats hard.

But people do it. People do it everyday. I have 2 sets of grandparents, both who have been married for a very long time, one for 50 years, the other set almost 50 years. How incredible is that, people who make it work. Would they tell you it was easy and everything was sunshine and roses? No, because it wasn’t, they had to work. They didn’t give up. Maybe there was times they wanted to, but they didn’t.

Random tangent I know, considering I haven’t posted since I was sick and then this comes out, but it has been on my mind. Maybe one day I will be able to figure it out and find someone, that’s what everyone hopes for right? They hope they meet someone who will stick with them, through all the hard times and the good times. In sickness and health. You know the vows that everyone makes to each other on their wedding day…

I don’t want to be cynical, but doesn’t it seem like it is a little hard not to be?

Not my usual princess and puppies post, is it?
