Yep. Relationships aren't no crystal stair or a bed of roses demonstrated in love movies and romance novels. Relationships take work, time, love, trust, patience, empathy and kindness in order to grow and blossom. That's why love can't be rushed. True love is not what we see in the romance movies and novels, "a happily ever after". The thing that most people don't know is this- during the good times, love is a feeling. But during the bad times, love is a choice.
