The title is a line from the song “Sail on Sailor” by The Beach Boys
Being so close to reach the 5-year-mark in my relationship with David, I have come to realize that we both have battled so much. We fought demons in our heads. We’ve struggled to bridge two different cultures. We’ve fought our urges to just run away and leave everything behind. We’ve both realized we fought battles, so many battles within that it would only be a waste of victory if we quit. Together we have drowned deep down the ocean, but we always managed to swim our way up to the shore and sunshine. It’s always a rewarding feeling, stronger love when we did. I can’t wait to celebrate the 5 year mark! My mom has always said, if two people survived the first 5 years of a relationship, they’re always set for the next five. And every five years a challenge will always rise, and I believe we will always conquer all!
