Your Relationship Will Never Be Perfect

Quit Trying to Become Something Which Does Not Exist, It Will Destroy A Great Thing

“Relationships are harder because conversations become texting, arguments become phone calls, and feelings become status updates.”

It can be tough not to look around at your life and see a matte finish when all you ever do is compare said life to the filtered life of others.

What works for one couple will not be replicable for another.

In order to have a great relationship, you have to forgo the want of having a perfect relationship.

“The best relationships aren’t posted all over social media.”

The moment you begin Instagramming your romantic moments, rather than (actually) cherishing them, you are losing the true essence of the situation.

A great relationship happens behind closed doors.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with sharing your successes, stories, and celebrations online, but do wonder how much value the online attention adds?

What I am much more interested in are the inner workings of your relationship.

“Nowadays, when our relationships get hard, we can just log on & get high off of this false sense of security, appreciation & understanding.”

“Relationship killers: Insecurity, Trust issues, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Jealousy, Lack of communication, Assumptions”

In a great relationship:

When I was striving for a perfect relationship, I was perpetually exhausted.

It can be effortlessly easy to mask your whole day with appearing (to others) to be happy.

You will find the mask suffocating and you will have to rip it off.

You can live your whole life in a substandard relationship, but there is no prize for being a martyr. No one really cares if your partner is good, great or ghastly because they will never know, it only impacts you, your life, your future, and your happiness.

I write about issues that are near and dear to my heart, with the hope that my stories, experiences, and struggles may empower others:
