Romantic Relationships shouldn’t be generalized. We often see relationships as black and white. But there is so much more to relationships than just what we experience in our own relationship. Our connection with one person is very different from one with another, which means that every relationship we encounter is unique.
Something I have noticed that we tend to do is generalize relationships. If I, my parents, my friends etc experience the same thing then that means that everyone goes through it, right? … Not necessarily. There are a lot of people in the world and each and every relationship and connection is unique in one way or another. When we generalize in our language towards love and connection we can hurt those around us. Just because we haven’t experienced it, doesn’t make it true. We shouldn’t discount others feelings just for the sake of our own ego.
I invite us to stop generalizing, be open to possibilities or even just be happy for the person who is telling you about their relationship. We have to start questioning our own thoughts and behaviours.
The power is between us! 💫
