I’m convinced that today’s couple have no staying power or real sense of commitment. When two people make the decision to become one, class is now in session! You plunge into a continuous voyage of learning the other party.Nothing stays the same including people, so how could you have learned someone, and moved on in two months? Were you ever really serious about a commitment? Could it be you just wanted the made up fairytale of perfection that’s offered to us by movies, books and media and when it seemed far fetched you ran? All great things take work, even the things that seem to have fallen into our laps.Continuous work…daily contributions of effort. Kirk Franklin said it best. “The reason marriage vows say til death do us part is because that’s how long it takes to get to know someone.” When you enter into a relationship you are making the sensible decision to learn someone everyday. The good, the bad and the ugly. The list will grow longer by the year but its up to us to view the pro’s over the con’s.
When I was fifteen years old, I wore my first bow tie. A young man at the event came up to me and said “why are you wearing that? It makes you look like a woman… 0_o. My face exactly. In less than two years, I came back and half the men had on bow ties…INCLUDING HIM! Moral of the story, The very ones criticizing your boldness, are secretly thanking you for being courageous enough to open a door, they themselves are dying to walk through.
