In a relationship, commitment is a choice we make every single day, over and over again.
We choose it when we’re tired and overworked and stressed.We choose it no matter what attractive person crosses our path.
We choose it every time our partner makes a bid for attention and we put down our book, or look away from the TV, or up from our phone to acknowledge their importance in our life.
When we make our relationship a priority by showing that it’s a priority, we build trust and demonstrate our loyalty.
