It takes time, energy, and commitment to stay connected through all the problems that life and people bring. It can be painful, aggravating, and scary to stick it out through all the ups and downs…but the alternative is worse.

you dont know zenglangel how much you made me realize through your post to appreciate my partner more. very timely now that we're not in good terms and i almost want to break it off... then i realize at some point i cant... these are certainly very good reminders to keep in mind all the time.
