Any partner we choose will hurt us at one time or another. No relationship, even the most ideal, has unwavering smooth sailing… There will always be differences between lovers.
The person you marry is the person you fight with. The house you buy is the house you repair. The dream job you take is the job you stress over. Everything comes with an inherent sacrifice – whatever makes us feel good will also inevitably make us feel bad. What we gain is also what we lose. What creates our positive experiences will define our negative experiences.
