I probably wrote about it in the past but I can’t find it. So I’ll write it again.
I see so often that people write about Yuuri and Viktor never getting past the honeymoon stage. And this is their happy ending. But honestly? Being past the honeymoon stage is fun.
The honeymoon stage is like going on a vacation. New, exciting, full of experiences - it’s great!
Afterwards? Being with your partner is like being home. Comfortable.
“I love you” is casual instead of being an overwhelming excitement.
The love itself is steady and warm, sometimes overflowing, but not a constant haze.
You feel secure.
You partner stops being this divine being blessing your life, and becomes a person you choose to be with every day. This is honestly a better blessing.
You have to get used to a partner. You can’t be together without that eventually happening. That’s not a sad thing. I love those moments where I think “this is my life. This is my every day.” And I just feel so lucky to have this. Being able to see a person and feel at home.
