I Honestly Think Relationships In General Would Be Healthier

I honestly think relationships
I honestly think relationships, in general, would be healthier, in general, if we didn’t believe they should always, by default, last forever.⁣⁣⁣

When the default is ‘forever’ and shorter relationships are seen as a failure, we miss out on a lot. We stay in relationships that don’t work because they’re not ‘bad enough’ to leave, as though not wanting the relationship anymore isn’t a good enough reason. We deny ourselves happy memories, saying ‘If it doesn’t work now, our love then wasn’t real.’ We pass on relationships we know would be short, because if it doesn’t last forever, what’s the point in joy in the moment?⁣⁣⁣

An ending isn’t a failure. It’s an ending. Most relationships have them. What would our relationships be like if we stopped focusing on our fear of endings and started focusing on what we – and our friends, partners, and families – need and want right now?

Relationship Quotes, 2am Thoughts

Whimsical and romantic by nature, I am always on the lookout for the next crazy adventure I can enjoy! I believe that life is not meant to be serious all of the time, and we should have fun as much as we can. Also, writing has always been more than a hobby for me.View Author posts
