“Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.” ― Mother Teresa
“When love beckons to you follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden. For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth......Kahlil Gibran
We look at marriage or a long term relationship as being a great gift two people share with one another, not of bondage, but rather of opportunity. You shouldn't have to give yourself away to be with another. Your love could be rich and full providing a fertile ground for growth, self-expression, and fulfillment. Have a great day.
