Being married young is something I will never regret, it means I get to have a longer life as husband and wife, with the person I love. I am happy, oh so happy. It doesn’t mean its a walk in the park, its not all romance and happily ever afters, its work, a lot of work. It is work that is worth it.
It means figuring out this world together.
It means growing together.
It means never having to be alone during the hard times.
It means always having someone to cheer you on.
It means compromising and having patience.
It means saying you’re sorry.
It means being selfless at times, even when you really don’t want to be.
It means listening, really listening.
It means late night talks to figure it out.
It means constantly learning.
It means paving a new path together, as a team.
I am struggling with being selfless. The holidays are my favorite because I love the tradition that comes with the holidays, but I find myself wishing them away lately. Letting go of what I’m used to and accepting new traditions is so hard for me, I want it to be easy, but change is hard and making new traditions is hard. Giving up my Thanksgiving traditions and being away from my family is hard for me and I’m not sure how to make it easier. My goal is to stop stressing and just go with it, I want to make the most of the holidays which means letting go of stress and sadness and accepting the change that comes with marriage.
Did you find it hard to change your traditions once you were married?
