“We want things uncomplicated and undemanding. Unfortunately, however, the game of love is neither. It requires immense compromise, flexibility, and forgiveness from both parties, which often necessitates more time and effort than we find ourselves willing to expend.
Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice. Love is perpetual give and take. Love is learning to put someone else’s needs and desires above your own: selflessly and willingly. Love is admitting that you’re wrong; you screwed up, but that you endeavor to make it work because in your heart you know that love is also unfailingly rewarding, patient, kind, and true.
Love is unconditional.
Love is worth fighting for, always.”
