Today is one of my very best friend Chloe’s birthday and I am so excited and happy. We went shopping and I bought her the cutest dress and necklace and she has a date tonight with a guy she really likes and I am just so happy.
Something that has always bothered me is when I hear people say, “I want what they have. I’ll never have a relationship.”
…Ok? What is so great about a “relationship?” If a boyfriend/girlfriend is what you want, you can go grab anyone from the streets and see if they want to go out, hypothetically. You don’t want what someone else has.
I really think we need to learn to be content in ourselves and our own lives, and that’s when we’ll realize that what we care about is finding the right person, not having any boyfriend. I don’t know about anyone else, but if I have a boyfriend, I want to really like him. I want him to make my face glow when I talk about him and be able to say, “He has these passions and his childhood was like this and these are his views” etc. I’m not searching for this person. I’m not searching for anyone. I love my life and the people in it.
Rather than let someone we love’s happiness in a relationship get us down, why don’t we focus on being happy for them? Some of my most genuine happiness comes from hearing about what is making my loved ones happy. We were created to care about others and feel what they feel and empathize.
Sorry that today was such a random rant, but I really wanted to talk about that.
LOVE YOU ALL and I’ll be popping in this weekend for a birthday blog. Xo
