Every relationship is unique and each of us have a special kind of love story. Have you ever dreamed of a happily ever after like the ones we read in a fairytale book? Because I did.
No relationship is perfect because we’re not born perfect. Trials, misunderstandings and time could be the hindrance to strengthen your ties but it’s all up to you both on how you decide the future of your relationship.
Like others, my husband and I went through a lot of adjustments. We went from happy, sad, laughter and sometimes tears. Why? Because obviously you’re both different people with so many differences. The first two years of being together was the most difficult time for us. Being different in so many ways was the factor that always triggered our fights. There was sometimes in our lives that I thought taking a break was the only solution to solve our problems (I can’t handle fights and it always stresses me). But whenever we thought about it, it was like breaking us into pieces. Then we compromised with each other, talked and we listened. Until we got used to it and fights started to lessen. One thing that we always practice whenever we have a misunderstanding is to ask for forgiveness. Then we hug and then we’re okay.
On March 5th, 2015 we celebrated our 5th year wedding anniversary as well as Chris’s 30th birthday. So many things that we are thankful for. Five years is such a great achievement for us as a couple. I wanna say thank you so much to my husband Chris for loving and taking care of me. Plus, I was surprised with the proposal and I felt like it flashed back our good memories. I am thankful to God that we’re one of those lucky couples who were given a chance to enjoy the gift of love.
The reality might not be the same as what was written in a fairytale book but in our own ways, we can make our ideal Cinderella love story.
And this is our story…
