Every relationship takes work. And sometimes I think the better they are, the more work they take. Deep relationships like marriage take a tremendous amount of work. Continuously.
The sign of an immature person is that they run away from all relationships as soon as they take serious effort. They are always looking for the perfect relationship that takes no work. Which doesn’t exist.
Or at least not a healthy one, that isn’t based on enablement and co-dependency. If you want to have great friendships and a strong union, you have to be willing to do the work. So how are you doing on that?
