“So, I’ve been thinking about this whole being happy thing, and I feel like people get lost when they think of happiness as a destination. We’re always thinking that someday we’ll be happy; we’ll get that car or that job or that person in our lives that will fix everything. But happiness is a mood, and it’s a condition, not a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry, it’s not permanent. It comes and goes, and that’s okay. And I feel like if people thought of it that way, they’d find happiness more often.”—

Relationships only fail if you don't try. You need patience. People just want an automatic love story, but it doesn't happen that way. You have to put in effort. pull your end of the rope, and if you truly love the person, you'll go out of your way to make it work.
There's a difference between having a real relationship and just being together because that's all you're used to. There's a difference between meaning your "I love yous" and just saying them every night because "that's what you do." There's a difference between being together and wanting to be together. It's a relationship, not a routine.
