Relationships are never easy. You have situations where you want to cry, smile, or be angry. There are times where you want to have time away from your significant other and other times, you want them to hold you close. There are always many ups and downs to a relationship, but if you love each other, you end up making things workout in the end. I’ve been in a relationship with my man for five years now, and it has truly been a journey of plenty of laughing, crying, endless memories, and tons of love. But even in our relationship, things have never been easy. We have taken one break when we have been together, but not long after being apart, we came back together, and it seems like nothing ever happened. Since being in a long-term relationship, I have learned many key things to a successful relationship.
