The Fourth

2 03 2007

Tomorrow, March 3 2007 is a very special day. Shayne and me are celebrating our 4th Anniversary of being together. Considering the odds against us when we were just starting out, I think 4 years is quite an achievement. A lot of people didn’t expect that we will reach this far and we just proved them wrong. We are strong. We love each other. We are meant to be.

No, we are not perfect. Our relationship, just like any other normal relationships, has its own ups and downs. In fact, it’s been a rough and bumpy ride for the last few months. There are lots of fights, misunderstandings, and painful exchange of words. Conversations would usually turn into arguments and breakups. It’s a shame but we had a lot of breakups. There came a point that it happens every other night. It’s extremely sad and frustrating.

The weird thing about us is that after those breakups, we are still together. Those parting times and goodbyes would turn out to be an overnight incident. The next morning, things or so it seems, are back to normal. That’s always been the case, though there are times that she confessed that she was ready to give up, to move on, to forget…

But I always tell her that I’m not giving up. That I will do everything I could to keep our relationship alive. And so far it works. We had developed this resiliency that gives us ability to recover and move on. That resiliency is making us a stronger and a tougher duo to crack.

On our fourth year, we are fortified with love.

Moving on, I’m looking forward to a more harmonious life with her. We are on our fourth year and I certainly hope that this is not our last.

Happy Anniversary to us!

>>>Your relationship is evolving, finding its course towards a sense of maturity…loving someone in spite of!

“Infantile love follows the principle: “I love because I am loved.”
Mature love follows the principle: “I am loved because I love.”
Immature love says: “I love you because I need you.”
Mature love says: “I need you because I love you.” – Erich Fromm

reyna elena,

hehe. I’m sure my girlfriend could relate to your experience. Love or pure insanity? I’m not sure too. Maybe it’s both.

Thanks! You have a nice collection of quotes. Thanks for sharing some in my blog. I love your header btw. 🙂

love is a choice. but it’s odd, because in loving we get to choose without us clearly knowing why we stay.
