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.
Long story short, if you don’t want to fall out of love, then just don’t. It’s hard, but it’s worth it. All it takes is everything you have. If you’re not ready for that commitment, you aren’t ready for a real relationship. It’s as simple as that.
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.
I want to be perfectly clear that I don’t believe anyone should be forced to dress differently to make someone else happy. I just want to express a slightly different point of view, and if you think it’s not important enough to act on then so be it. You make your own decisions, but you also need to know how your choices affect the lives of others, even if you don’t realize it.
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.
