It seems like these days people are racing to get to the illusive “happily ever after” finish line. I came across this article that puts things into perspective that marriage is not some extraordinary accomplishment.
Truth is, there is no happily ever after. If you can’t be happy with who you are when you are alone, with all your so-called flaws and imperfections, the joy of a relationship will eventually fall short of your expectations and dissipate after some time.
The only lasting happiness is the one you decide everyday for yourself regardless of circumstance. There are additional things in life worthy of your strife and celebration, don’t make it just be one.
