I love love. I promise I do. Nothing warms my heart more than seeing a couple truly enjoying, loving and appreciating each other. And when you're happy you wanna share it with the world. Hell, I know I do. But never can I ever, appreciate or understand people that fake it. Now ... I don't know the intricacies of everyone's relationship and vice versa but Nassau is only so big. Everyone's best friend has a best friend. People talk. People see. People hear. Your dirty laundry will be aired at some point whether you want it to happen or not. Prepare yourself for it. I sure do.
With that said, nobody needs to know when you guys are not speaking or when someone messed up, but we also need you to keep that extra, unnecessarily mushy shit to a minimum. Sometimes it can be cute and funny but when your boyfriend was macking in my DMs last night, his tweets about his "Wifey" only make me chuckle. And when I witnessed you guys having a cuss out over dinner last night, I can only laugh at your "So happy I found my soulmate" tweets. It's like ... who are you REALLY trying to convince? Us or you? I'm going to go with the latter for $500, Alex.
Aren't you tired of creating a fake happy life on Twitter? Don't you grow weary of being the laughingstock of Twitter? Don't you wanna be happy in real life?! My God. I don't understand how you're able to confess (type) your love for him all over Twitter with all those tears in your eyes! Talk about multi-tasking!
I don't see the point of lying to other people and moreover, lying to yourselves. Why are you shortchanging yourself? Because you've been together for a while? Because people expect you to stay together? Because it's comfortable? You should be HAPPY, damnit! Why are you robbing yourself ... and somebody else? Not every day is rainbows and unicorns but my goodness, cheaters and liars are never to be tolerated. Especially when it happens over and over. Yeah people mess up but over a span of 2 years, he's had HOW many "other women"? Oh. And she's had HOW many men financing her behind your back? And you stayed because ...? Aight.
But what about people who suffer in silence? I feel sorry for you the most. You aren't happy but you'd rather hold on to the shell of a man/woman than be alone. The single life has its pros but there is nothing better than being with someone that makes you happy (or happier). Having a best friend that you're absolutely in love with. Someone who gets you and APPRECIATES you. Just as you are. Why would you give that up for someone who constantly makes you feel like you're not good enough? I'd rather trudge it out and get my feelings hurt a little (or a lot) and find the person that makes it all worth it, than live the rest of my life in regret.
But alas, not everyone is Macarra. I'm a weird person. I'd prefer to hurt myself now if it means that one day I'll be happy. I'd rather cry myself to sleep (for now), than stay in an unfruitful relationship, holding on to some pretend happiness, knowing deep down I am hurting. Being a straightforward person, especially in relationships, is incredibly difficult. I address issues head on and even if the outcome is unfavorable, I like to know what I'm dealing with. If you aren't happy with me, then by all means, please leave. I can only fight for it, if you do. I've seen too many one-sided relationships. One person is fighting to hold on to "love" while the other is chilling at Starbucks, enjoying a fresh Venti Caramel Macchiato. It's not fair and it's tiring. Even for the person having to witness it.
Movies and songs have made us to believe that love is perfect. Once you're in love, you magically turn into this perfect being that makes no mistakes. This couldn't be further from the truth. The only thing I expect from love is loyalty, respect, communication, admiration and some good damn sex. NOT perfection. But like I said not everyone is like me. I'm a weirdo.
In short, live life for YOU. Not for other people. I promise they don't care ... they're just there for the jokes.
