Relationship

Relationships aren’t easy. We grow up thinking that we will find our prince, our knight in shining armor to protect us. The truth is, we need to learn how to be the best individuals that we can be on our own as well as the best half of a relationship that we can be in every type of relationship: family, friend, romantic, etc… It is our responsibility to be honest with ourselves and do the work to go beyond the surface of what we see mentally, emotionally, and physically in order to love as selflessly and boldly as possible.

You have to learn to teach yourself something that I call common sense love.  What does that mean?  Making sure you are alert and not naïve or unrealistic.  We are humans who are prone to error.  We make mistakes and at times we are repeat offenders with our mistakes.  Teaching yourself to change your though process is difficulty but that is ultimately what I want you to do, change your way of thinking.




When you look at the outer surface of a relationship everything looks perfect.  You immediately start building a comparison.  One statement that I have seen on social media time and time again is “relationship goals”  although I am really not bothered when someone comments, but it makes me wonder.  Pictures do not show you any imperfections all you see is PERFECT and that is what I want, what I see. 




In case you find yourself in a state of elation and are wondering why that is, let me tell you, it is the benevolent mixture of magic and science in equal proportions. Yes. Well, to be honest, you can still keep the ingredients but rearrange the proportions because I am not quite sure how much of each goes into the making of the ‘I am soooo happy’ state. The magic is definitely Cupid working his way through that special someone. As far as science goes, it is dopamine.
