I believe in giving your all in love, because otherwise, what's the point? If all else fails, at least you can say you had done your best. I guess I'm a helpless romantic. #AndThatsOkay
With that said, I'm going to say there is a thin line between being in love and idolizing your significant other. It's fine to SING, "I don't know when I'm gon' die, but I hope that I'm gon' die by you" ... but in real life? No, boo. At the end of the day, people WILL fail you, they WILL disappoint you, they WILL lie to you. Even your perfect boyfriend. The sooner you accept that, the easier the let down will be.
I'm not here to rain on anybody's parade; if you trust your girlfriend completely, then good. I just hope she's earned it. And it's okay to "know" your boyfriend won't ever step out on your relationship because he's faithful, once he's proven that.
I saw a tweet the other day, "I love my boyfriend so much, he is my everything. My all. My being." Yeah eh? I was kinda hoping it was the beginning of a poem, but it wasn't. She ACTUALLY feels this way and she is intent on marrying him. That's cute, right? Nope. Not even. Know why? Cuz her beloved is stepping out ALL OVER TOWN. Yeah. He's not being faithful. And poor thing. She doesn't even know. But so many other people do.
Now you're probably thinking, "Well why doesn't someone tell her?" Well, she's one of those chicks that thinks EVERYONE is out to sabotage her relationship. Yeah. She has "haters". K. And he's been known to tell his side chicks, "Don't worry about her. She'n goin' nowhere. She'll never believe I'm cheating.." OOP!
Well, while she makes a complete fool of herself, I'll sit under some palm fronds on the beach and enjoy a martini. Cuz the view of the epic show that's gonna go down after she find out that he's cheating on her is gonna be real nice from here.
And what's even worse is she's the ONLY one giving out all this PDA (Public Display of Attention). I mean, really?! Chall, not Macarra. I have too much pride. Let me MISS and put up a mushy status and you don't (properly) comment or follow suit. Never. Again. I'm embarrassed when I send you a mushy text/BBM/WhatsApp and you don't respond the same way. So imagine how I'd feel after doing it in public. Honey child, I love myself too much to do that.
And that's what I need EVERYONE to do. After God, love YOURSELF first and foremost. Do NOT put your ALL into one person. It can't ever end well. The Bible even says so, "The arms of flesh will fail you ... " and the Bible doesn't lie. So, yeah. You can love him, but you MUST chill. I don't wanna see you on the airport road counting poles like the chick in that story from Perspectives from Inner Windows. (LMAO Y'all remember that book?!)
Yeah, that's it. Happy Friday doe!
