You had a Romeo and Juliet thing going on. It seemed at times as if your relationship was doomed by circumstance. One of you would be in the mood to get closer while the other was distracted by things outside your pairing.
Or you were never single at the same time. Or other forces -- your family? geographical distance? -- kept you apart. The universe never lined up and let you just be together in peace. You felt as if your love was being tested, and you were right. But how could you have made it through the hard times unscathed? The key to weathering any rough patch -- those 'for worse' moments -- lay in your ability to sacrifice. There was something you needed to give up to move ahead, and likewise for your partner. It was painful to give up something secure for something that seemed unsettled and unreliable. But the only way you could have moved forward was to trust, to make a leap. There was something beautiful awaiting you on the other side; if only you had let go and believed in the two of you. You could have endured the obstacles -- together.
