Nowadays, I feel like people glorify the single life. It’s all about being single and having your freedom and not having to answer to anyone. That’s all fine and dandy, but there’s no reason to judge other people who are happily in love. There are so many people today who are so cynical about love, thinking that it doesn’t exist. And why not? We live in a world where the divorce rate is at an all-time high and gay people who are in love aren’t even allowed to show it. People speak so negatively about love these days when they’re not in it.
I’ve had people tell me how I should be in my relationship with Jon. I’ve had friends who don’t support my relationship. I’ve had people judge me for the things that I do in my own personal relationship. Why? I don’t know, but what I do know is that the relationship between two people is something personal and really doesn’t concern the rest of the world. I am in love with Jon. I have been for almost three years, and no one can take that away from me. People have tried though.
I know Jon and I aren’t the only ones with this problem. I hear it all the time. People judge other people’s date nights, their social media posts, even their weddings. I mean, come on! Just because you don’t agree with the way that two people show their love for each other, doesn’t mean that you have to be negative about it.
Of course, it’s not just single people who do this. It’s everyone. People who are unhappy in their relationship or think that everyone’s relationship should be like their own. Everyone’s become so cynical about love, and they keep trying to throw themselves into people’s relationships.
Everyone’s relationship journey is different. Just like every person, every relationship is unique to the people that are in it. I think it’s time that we all start supporting each other and our relationships. Love is the most beautiful thing that anyone can have. Trust me. I know. And everyone’s journey to find true love is different. Instead of judging other’s romantic relationships, try extending your own love and help them be happy.
