Watch this video and enjoy.
Below, an excerpt from my journal which is relevant:
Loving relationships take work. They take talking about and working out the unsexy details. It's not just passively standing by feeling good feels while everything magically falls into place. People don't immediately know how you want and need to be loved. You have to teach each other and you have to learn and compromise or somehow find a way forward - that's not a bad thing. I love this Alain de Botton video because it reminded me to get my head out the clouds.
