Lifelong Commitments Aren’t What You Think They Are

For couples so eager to call it quits and throw in the towel on your relationship because everything isn’t ‘perfect’…here is some food for thought.

Lifelong commitment is not what most people think it is.
It’s not waking up every morning to make breakfast and eat together.
It’s not cuddling in bed until both of you fall asleep.
It’s not a clean home filled with laughter and lovemaking every day.
It’s someone who steals all the covers, and snores.
It’s slammed doors and a few harsh words at times.
It’s stubbornly disagreeing and giving each other the silent treatment until your hearts heal.
It’s forgiveness.
It’s coming home to the same person every day that you know loves and cares about you in spite of and because of who you are.
It’s laughing about the “one” time you accidentally did something stupid.
It’s about dirty laundry and unmade beds.
It’s about helping each other with the hard work of life.
It’s about swallowing the nagging words instead of saying them out loud.
It’s about eating the easiest meal you can make and sitting down together at a late hour because you both had a crazy day.
It’s a quick smile as you pass each other on the road while running errands!
It’s when you have an emotional day and your love holds you and tells you everything is going to be OK… And you believe them!
It’s about still loving someone even though sometimes they make you absolutely insane.

Loving someone isn’t always easy, sometimes it’s downright hard.
But it is amazing and comforting and one of the best things God, the powers that be, fate or the universe had in mind for us.
