no other person on this planet was made for you, they were made for themselves. love is all about choices. no one is going to be perfect for you, and i think we need to stop raising everyone on the belief that someone out there, just one other person in the whole world, was “made for you” because it isn’t true. no one is made for you, besides you. other people belong to themselves. if you want to make it work with someone, it’s about hard work, understanding, compassion, communication, and choice

THIS. And no relationship is perfect 100% of the time. It’s work, and your reward is making the other person happy.

You and me becomes “we,” and you start thinking about what’s best for you as a couple.

And fighting? It has nothing to do with how passionate a couple is, and EVERYTHING to do with their inability to communicate. My fiancé and I never fight because we talk our issues out like the adults we’re supposed to be.

One more thing: The lust doesn’t last forever; in fact, it only lasts about a year. What’s left after that determines whether your relationship can make the long haul, and become a true, deep and abiding love.

If all you have is lust, it WILL NOT last. But if you work, from the beginning, on understanding one another… you have a chance.

Mostly, I write stuff. And, like the Egyptians and the Internet, I put cat pictures on my walls. Also, I can read your Tarot.
