The other day I heard a line in a movie that stuck with me. I don’t know why it bothered me but it did. A character in the movie asked another character about "konwing" you were with the right person for you. The character replied "you just know."
That bothers me for some reason.
When and how do you know you are with the person you are going to spend the rest of your life with?
Personally I think it is at the moment you want to work for that relationship more then you are willing to let go and move on. I don’t mean staying wih someone becuase that is the easy thing to do. Good relationships don’t get built by "staying with someone." I mean the kind of putting of effort and work to make the relationship better.
Not becuase there are highs and lows, but rather becuase when things are running smoothly its the best place to be. It’s when you are willing to work harder then you ever have before and think about someone else first, then you are with the right person for you.
The moment of selflessness, when a selfless act means more in the long run then any number of selfish acts ever could.
So when do you know? When you are willing to put everything you have into making that relationship work.
