Not all hearts and flowers
Reflections on the heart #4 - Love is not all hearts and flowers.
Romantic love is all very well, but it doesn't last on its own. It doesn't carry you through hard times. It may be how love starts, but it's not how it endures. Love that endures is not based on feelings but on deliberate and wilful choice to act in a loving way towards someone.
Love is not all hearts and flowers. It is also pain, mundane, and hard work.
