And then there are those days when you realize that love isn’t all fairytales and butterflies. It isn’t all Disney, where happily ever after exists with the perfect man of your dreams. There will be flaws in your partner, just like there are flaws in you. And when you’re thinking about how your partner should do better at this, you should also be thinking about how you can be better at another. And maybe love really isn’t that easy. It takes constant effort to be kind and patient with each other. And maybe, just maybe, by being a little kinder and more patient with each other, that can take us, step by step, a little further, into this so called future we speak so cautiously about.
