We Almost Broke Up

I love my boyfriend, but I thought that we had to take a break. I didn't know how I felt about him. He told me he didn't want to take a break and since we were going to end up seeing each other the next day, I told him that I would think about it.
I decided that I really loved him so much and I couldn't break up with him. I'm so happy we stayed together ... we have been together for 4 months now. We plan to have a future. I've learned to not listen to my friends and do what I want to do. I listen to my heart. Relationships have their ups and downs, but if you're really committed to a relationship, you will make it work =)
