  1. Thanks Jasmin! I’m so glad you enjoyed the post ☺. People say that relationships should be easy, and in some ways o see where they’re coming from. But at the same time, we face some hard things in our relationship and we won’t get through them if we don’t talk about it.

  2. I love this piece! I’ve never been a huge fan of the phrase “falling in love” because, like you said, it’s a process and something you have to work at (even if the work is fun). It’s not just something that happens accidentally.

  3. Thank you so much for your comment, Althea! I couldn’t agree more – actions leading to love is a concept that absolutely transcends religions.

    Ultimately, I think it really hurts us when we think of romantic love as the only love. I’ve said before (even here, I think) that I’m fortunate to have been in love my entire life. My parents showed me what love means, especially through service, and I (in turn) was able to show my parents and siblings how much I loved and valued them by helping them. This isn’t to say that I, or anyone else, is perfect. But we all do our best :).

    I also find it slightly ironic that you picked up that tidbit at a Franklin Covey training. Franklin Covey was actually an active and practicing member of the LDS church until his death several years ago.
