I’ve come to understand more and more that it’s not what you go through in life but how you go through it that shows the love (or lack thereof) in a relationship.
Every couple goes through things… challenges, scares, tragedy’s, feelings, loss, insecurities, confusion. That is as much a part of life as the romance and the chemistry, the good times and pleasant memories. The good and the bad… that’s life, you know? Nothing we do can stop these things from happening… no matter how much we try!
In each relationship we have an opportunity to either let it make us or break us. Do we turn towards our loved one or turn away from them when things get painful and we are struggling? Turning inward for a time can be appropriate and healthy as long as each know they are still cared for and loved and they reconnect before their absence causes pain. It’s in the togetherness of coping and listening and healing that love is truly made into something solid and real.
How can we know we are Loved or we Love without the times that ask us to give? No, love gets it’s depth once real life appears. So young lovers embrace your hard times and battles for it is during those times your Love will truly grow! And if during a dark and challenging time turning towards the one you propose to love seems too much or you don’t want to for one reason or another… the best thing to do is to let your love go so that they may find a love that will prosper and flourish and blossom and grow.
Perhaps that’s why God allows bad things to happen to good people for it’s during those times we have an opportunity to know
True Love. 💫
