A friend once told me “Love is easy; relationships are hard.” No words could be truer. It is very easy to fall in love. However, putting in the work to maintain that love is generally what trips us all up.
It should be obvious, but the reality is that so many of us are unhappy because we choose to be unhappy. We spend our days dwelling on our failures, how we do not compare to others, coveting what others have and so dig ourselves into prisons of our own makings. The sad part is that too many people believe that happiness is some secret thing out there to which only some have the key. Happiness becomes a tangible thing rather like the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
