Like most people, I have three main social media accounts. Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. What I notice to be the consistent topic on all of them is romantic RELATIONSHIPS. Why does the world put such an emphasis on finding YOUR happiness within someone else? I’ve seen it growing up and now I see it everywhere as an adult.
Well I’ll tell you this, there’s nothing wrong with expressing that someone makes you happy but you should also know how to be by yourself as well… and it seems that a lot of people DON’T. I think it has a lot to do with personality type (Click here to find out your personality type) for instance, I’m an ENFJ. Which in simpler terms means that I’m mostly an extrovert (I get life from being around other people) but almost half extrovert, half introvert. I value my space and I’ll be damned if I stay with someone for the sake of having someone.
I’ve always held my happiness on the highest pedestal and I’m just not wired to stay in situations that puts restrictions on what type of person that I am or just flat out makes me unhappy. If the bad outweighs the good, then I can’t stay with someone for the sake of staying with someone. However, I’ve seen people put up with the worse treatment (and blame it on love) just to HAVE someone. Why is that? Why is it that society can’t live without the illusion of Love and Relationships?
What’s your opinion on this? Feel free to leave your comments below! Let’s have a discussion about this. Let reflect on why we put as a society put so much emphasis on Love and Relationships. Enlighten me guys and gals!
