True Love is Acceptance

    1. Haha! I know right. I’m glad you thought it was useful. In my circle of friends I am the “relationship guru” since I have been through so much with my girl. Might write more of these kinds of posts :)


  1. The thing I wish most for is that everyone understood, really understood from the very beginning, that bending yourself into a pretzel in attempts to be who you truly are not is not only futile but entirely life-squelching. I think we have to teach self-acceptance and other-acceptance very early on, from the second kids start to lose that natural inherent sense and start to feel they need to be something different. And then maybe we’ll get to the point where it’s not an issue in adult relationships any more. Lots of work to be done I think, but I’m ever hopeful. And congratulations on your upcoming anniversary.


  2. Congrats on your anniversary! My husband had his Dad as his Best Man, and I remember as part of his speech, him talking about Love not being about all wine and roses, but sometimes it being about mopping up after the roof had fallen in. And that struck me both then and since as so realistic. We’ve been together 26 years now and those words have stayed with me and reminded me that everyone goes through difficult times and good times, and that you’re stronger together to enjoy the good times and work through the hard ones.
