Marriage is Hard but honestly the GREATEST thing in the world! I feel like the reason that Marriages fail is because people try to change their Spouse! When you choose to be with someone for the rest of your life you choose them as a whole! Love them with your WHOLE HEART no MATTER WHAT! #marriage #love #husband #wife #lovewithpurpose #nevergiveup #Family
THIS. Oh the TRUTH. Love isn't a feeling it's a decision. A choice when the feeling is gone and life is hard and ugly and scary. This kind of Love is what remains when when you have nothing left of the dreams—this is the choice that says, "I promised. And you're worth keeping promises for."
I remember reading this in an article a long time ago and it really striking a chord. I often hear people say that they would rather have their partner be the one who loves them more. There is some narrative that we believe that says "if I don't love you more than you love me, I'll never get hurt." It's a distorted belief that let's us hold some form of perceived power and control, but has us living and loving from a fear based place. Truth is, you don't walk around with power, you walk…
Marriage is not easy. Marriage is a lot of work. If you're the type of person who can't take responsibility for your mistakes, runs when times get hard, can't live without putting yourself first and refuse to see that you expect only perfection when you are anything but, then you have no business being married.
We all have the power to be GREAT. | "Life is going to get hard sometimes. So get the fuck up and get your shit together. You're either an ocean or a puddle. People walk through puddles like they're nothing. Oceans fucking destroy cities." — Unknown
