Amor, Amor? Oh, solamente costumbre?
Do you know the difference between love and comfort?
The kind of comfort that offers a false sense of security.
The kind of comfort that is an everyday routine you’ve grown accustomed to?
To change it would be too difficult, too messy!
Some of us get stuck in this rut and we don’t even realize it’s a rut.
In Spanish, there is a saying of sorts, more of a question, “es amor, oh es costumbre?”
How do you know if you are in love or simply too comfortable to begin again?
I get it, who wants to throw away years of faking it?
That’s what you’re doing, your faking it.
If you are simply in a relationship because it would take too much effort to remove yourself from it, you are fucking up your relationship with yourself. That’s the most important relationship of all.
If you have kids, what kind of example are you setting? I’m not judging, I get it, it’s hard but I also know that once you realize the reality of your relationship, you’ll be better off.
I once was an angry person, a negative person, a short-tempered person.
I was in the wrong relationship and I was hurting myself emotionally because I could not develop the courage to get out.
No, that’s a lie, I just didn’t want to start again. Even at a young age, the idea of starting over, all over with someone was so stressful that I didn’t want to do it.
I finally moved on and let go and I found myself.
I found me. The woman I was meant to be.
It wasn’t easy but it wasn’t boring either.
Life is meant to be lived and it’s too short to be lived comfortably.
Find someone who challenges you, who motivates you and pushes you.
Be someone who challenges, motivates and pushes.
How long are you going to hold onto the wrong type of love?
Have you ever found yourself in a similar situation?
Tell me how you overcame! (share, share!)
