This is beautiful, I truly thank you for sharing it. I have always found comfort in quotes because they show me that some feelings are completely natural. I don’t need this yet (hopefully I will never need to read this again for advice in my relationship) but I will alwaya remember this.

I’m quite sure that lovely quote is from Captain Corellis Mandolin. Lovely quote, and even better book! 

I highly recommend it.

Wow! We’re very alike! I found this quote when searching for potential readings at our wedding. I didn’t want any bible readings.

I cried when I read this quote because many, many times I had doubted. After reading this, I knew that we were OK and that, like you said, my feelings were normal. 

I feel more in live with my Fiance now because I have a deeper understanding for what love really is πŸ™‚ I’m glad you shared this so that other Bees could take away from this.

i defintely needed to read this. i’ve never felt like it was a mistake to get married, but we have our moments where we fight and get on each other’s nerves. and i need to keep reminding myself that just because we don’t like each other sometimes, doesn’t mean we don’t love each other. if that makes sense.

anyway, thanks for sharing this πŸ™‚

@ConfusedBrideToBe:  Oh I love this! Our wedding reading was in a similar vein – I hope you don’t mind if I share it…

 From ‘A Gift From the Sea’ by Anne Morrow Lindberg

When you love someone, you do not love them all the time in exactly the same way, from moment to moment. It is an impossibility, it is even a lie to pretend to. And yet this is exactly what most of us demand. We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, of relationships. We leap at the flow of the tide and resist in terror its ebb. We are afraid it will never return. We insist on permanency, on duration, on continuity; when the only continuity possible in life as in love, is in growth, in fluidity, in freedom. In the sense that the dancers are free, barely touching as they pass, but partners in the same pattern.

The only real security is not in owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting, not in hoping, even. Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what it was in nostalgia, nor forward to what it might be in dread or anticipation, but living in the present relationship and accepting as it is now. For relationships, too, must be like islands, one must accept them for what they are here and now, within their limits – islands, surrounded and interrupted by the sea, and continually visited and abandoned by the tides. One must accept the security of the winged life, of the ebb and flow of intermittency.
