A Love Quote
Love feels no burden, regards not labors, strives toward more than it attains, argues not of impossibility, since it believes that it may and can do all things.--Thomas à Kempis

Always Making Excuses
Do you find yourself always making excuses for your partner? 'He´s just cranky tonight' or 'She´s just got a lot on her mind'. Everybody goes through rough spots, and deserves support through them, but your entire relationship cannot be a giant ´rough spot´. You both deserve happiness and contentment, and you have a right to expect your partner to help work towards that goal.
It might be that you´re just not the right combo. Maybe someone else wouldn´t mind what your partner does at all, or maybe with someone else your partner wouldn´t be that way in the first place. In any case, talk about the situation, and work on a plan of action. If you keep living in a situation where you feel like you´re shouldering your partner´s burden, it will wear out the relationship.
