It sucks when you hold someone to a high standard and they disappoint you. It’s like they don’t even hold themselves to that stature so it makes their actions excusable.
I’ve been admiring the many relationships and marriages around me and only see the surface and only hear the years that they’ve reached. But I wonder behind all of the happiness, what work was done? What barriers were broken? What made them stay? The truth.
Social media is into, “relationship goals” … over an image. But really what’s the truth? And when the $&?! hits the fan, are both individuals going to continue writing their story?
I believe love shouldn’t be one sided and if both individuals are going to be together, then by all means strip yourselves bare of any and all insecurities, burdens, heartaches, confusion, any negativity, dreams, aspirations, desires … IT ALL.
But it seems like some of us aren’t quite ready for that side of our partner, we would rather much focus on the surface than the ugly truths.
