Im generally not a very trusting person , my motto for a long time was ‘trust no one till they give you a reason to’
That does not work well in relationships though as you have to open yourself up to let the other person in.Vulnerability is often a high price to pay especially if you have been burnt before.
The reward though when you experience an amazing connection and fall in love is well worth it. Its a world full of rainbows and butterflies one can only understand it through experience.
The true test comes when life keeps throwing surprises at you. Sometimes they’re good which just goes to increase the love, but sometimes they’re bad.
This is when your proclamations of love really count. When you’re character is put to test, how do you react when you’re struggling to pay bills? when you have to cut down on some luxuries?
Do you still experience the rainbows and butterflies when times are hard? That’s when ‘I will love you always, no matter what’ counts.
What do you do when ‘no matter what’ comes sooner rather than later?Do you cut your losses and run for the hills? Even fairytales had their fair share of life surprises, evil witches and all that.
Happily ever after isnt a perfect life without problems, its about fighting to keep the rainbows and butterflies even through the worst of storms.
