It was 2011 when we plotted this date – 24 January 2015, as this is the Saturday we saw in the calendar four years ago. We never thought that days would fly so fast and we got overwhelmed with each other’s own individual journey.
When 2014 came, we thought there would be a miracle. Things got crazy on my work and his gone easy. We wanted to accomplish more things for us.
We didn’t lose the firework we always had in our relationship but we got older.
Wanting to settle down is a priority….
It’s not about planning the dress you will wear or the menu you will serve to your guests. It’s about evaluating your relationship and valuing the essence of building your own family (as Catholic, the sacrament of marriage).
We can always start a family anytime now but without taking this new step, we won’t mature as a couple.
I am thankful that my partner is pushing for this and I’m the one slacking (I cannot complete the list of my entourage).
It’s rare, true love.
To all people who is in a relationship right now (or you want to be), don’t just play on it. Do not commit yourself if you plan to walk away. Never neglect each day to do something that will nurture your relationship. Grow together. Have fun. Compromise. Don’t strive to be perfect. Understand indifferences.
At the end of the day, the one you will end up with is the person you choose. The relationship you’re gonna be in, is the relationship you took care of.
One last thing, love yourself first, completely, in that way you will be able to transfer not just romantic love to your partner, but the most genuine love we can impart to everyone else.
P.S. We have chosen a new date and plans are tangible now. I am so excited.
