I met Bug 17 years ago someplace where we used to work. We started out as friends, got close, became best friends and just celebrated our 12th year wedding anniversary on New Years Eve.
Being in a relationship is hard. Being married is even harder. I’m sure we all have our own stories to share. You need a lot of trust, mutual respect, compromise, sacrifice, understanding, the willingness to work at it and stand by your partner when times gets rough. Sometimes i forget to love and accept him for who he is as I always want him to be the best version of himself.
I have come to realize that when you love someone, you really love someone. Unconditionally. A tad bit late to come to my senses but hey, its better late than never! Love will never be easy. A relationship will never be all rainbows everytime. You’ve got work for it every single day. It is about staying together when times are bad, when life is tough. It is about trying to fix it when it is broken. It is a partnership of two unique individuals who inspires the other and brings the best out of each other.
And you know what they say, the couples that are meant to be are the ones who go through everything that is meant to tear them apart and come out even stronger.
