You’ve been sold the lie that relationships are supposed to be hard.

You’ve been sold the lie that relationships are supposed to be hard.

It’s NOT about fighting about who has to put the dishes away. It’s NOT about screaming and crying because you’ve had a hard day and came home to the laundry not being done even though you asked them 5 times to do it. It’s NOT about your partner waiting until you get into the shower to decide they need to take a shit. It’s NOT fighting over financial problems.

SO MANY PEOPLE WOMEN AND MEN COMPROMISING WHEN IT COMES TO RELATIONSHIPS.

What message are we sending our kids! That they should settling for someone that doesn’t treat them right, that doesn’t take care of themselves, that yells and screams to get their point across?

THAT IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO BE IN JUST ANY RELATIONSHIP, THAN TO BE IN ONE THAT IS LOVING, SUPPORTING, BASED ON VALUES THAT ARE SHARED, THAT HAS OPEN HONEST COMMUNICATION THAT IS NOT BASED ON BLAMING THE OTHER PERSON!

How did we get to this point?

Now this rant comes from a post that has been floating around about how relationships are about all the shit things in life but your lucky because you still ‘love’ the other person!

Well…

I call BULLSHIT!

You are making excuses for the shitty relationship that you have gotten yourself into because you thought you couldn’t do any better. Or that you were possibly taught by your parents, that it is ‘normal’ to be in a relationship that is built on fighting, stress, blaming, shouting and expecting the other person to stop living at their full potential!

And people call this love! 💔

The world is fucked!

What are relationships supposed to be like?
