My Final Words on Love

My partner and I had been dating for a few months when he sent me this quote by Bob Marley – “If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy. If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing. If she’s worth it, you won’t give up. If you give up you’re not worthy…Truth is everybody is going to hurt you; you’ve just got to find the ones worth suffering for.”

That quote seals my love for him and while I don’t encourage suffering, his actions continue to show me that I’m worth it. For that, I’m eternally grateful. May the love of your life make your life amazing by not being easy but worth it all the way!
