Social media is fun and “all men are trash”.
That’s not always the case. Social Media is not always fun and not all men are trash.
Relationships on Social Media are not perfect. Yes, they’re couples that you love seeing on your timeline and you feel a sense of attachment to. No couple that shares snippets of their “glowing” life the “couples goals” isn’t real. Those couples experience similar heartache that the ordinary person does. They’re just more open and better at putting together the experience to get you emotionally invested in their daily lives. This my friend is not healthy. Take these relationships with a grain of salt. Every other week there is one celebrity who is getting divorced and or breaking up.
” Relationships aren’t a one size fits all”.
Your relationship is unique to you. What works for your relationship may not work for mine. Also, people only share good things online; you have no idea what people are truly going through behind the scenes. It’s ok to cheer on the relationship but the moment you get invested that it affects you personally and your outlook on life, comparing your relationship to them; you need to take a step back.
Be deliberate with your relationships. If there is something that you feel that you can do to make it better talk to your partner but don’t hold the standards of your favorite celebrity couple against your partner who is truly trying. Newsflash maybe what you’re trying to do is just not for you. That’s okay, figure out what is and be happy with that.
