We do our kids a real disservice by telling them that if a relationship is good, it will be easy. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. The truth is a relationship is good because you work hard at it! Some stuff will come naturally, yes. It should be easy to love someone (if it’s not and you have to be convinced you should love them, red flag!). Having fun with someone should be natural and easy. Respecting someone who is worthy of respect is natural. Being compatible with someone? Ehhhhh, not so much. It takes work, everyday, and until she’s ready to do the work, there’s no shame in telling your daughter that she can pass on taking the job for now.
