“No condition is permanent”. My mom said this often when I was growing up. I remember I would roll my eyes every time she said that. Fortunately or unfortunately, I finally get what she was trying to say. “No condition is permanent” is simply a reminder that you have to strive to maintain the comfortable or happy life because life happens. Life will hit you hard – it is up to you to get back on track or let life swallow you whole.
I’m content with my relationship because we aren’t just lovers but friends as well. As much as it is great to be both lovers and friends, it is twice the pain and burden when things don’t go a certain way. One day, we are the best of friends and the fun kids to hang out with but the next day, we could be squabbling lovers. I have to constantly remind myself that at the end of the day, I want to be happy and share all these happy moments with the person I love. A reminder that no condition is permanent, and that it is up to me to get back up and back on to the happiness train after life hits me hard in the head, is what keeps me going and what keeps me sane.
