Real life doesn't have happy endings. In real life, you're not likely to find someone perfect and have them whisk you off into the sunset. In real life, relationships don't end up existing 'happily ever after', right?
We’ve all spent time around people that just kind of drain the life out of you. You know the ones. The manipulators, the guilt-trippers, the ones that make you feel on edge and exhausted.
Marriage is not there to control or restrict. It is not there to keep people in check or make our lives miserable. Marriage is not a way to improve your relationship with someone or make sure they never leave.
I’m so glad we live in a time when it’s so widely known that all people are equal to one another. This knowledge wasn’t always popular, and there are still people that resist this concept. Don’t worry, they’ll come around. These things just take time.
It is not foolish to believe. It is not stupid to trust. Obviously, there’s risk involved. You put yourself in a position where you could be wrong. But nothing great was ever accomplished without some measure of risk.
We all want our way. We want things to go exactly how we’d like them to without any sort of resistance. If we hear that someone else has a different opinion on how things should be, we tense up and sometimes we get into an argument. We get legitimately offended if someone disagrees with us, as though it’s an affront to all that is right with the world.
This is a call to unity and pride, not just within individual demographics. We can do better than that. Let’s all be proud of each other and stick together whether we agree with each other or not. Let’s fight for each other’s rights as well as our own.
I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of everyone only fighting for their own rights. We would get a lot further if we also made a point to fight for each other, even when we disagree.
When you’re in a romantic relationship with someone, they take an important place in your life. Your significant other should be the one you vent to when you’re having a bad day. He or she should be the one you rely on for emotional support. Your partner should always be your shoulder to cry on. If you allow anyone else to take one of these roles in your life, you’re on a dangerous path.
Trust doesn't mean you're never scared. There will still come times when you're afraid, but you will find a lot of relief from that fear if you choose to give your significant other the benefit of the doubt anyways.
