Relationship Goals

Saturday, September 23, 2017 3 Comments A+ a-


You know when you’re scrolling through social media and you see that hot damn couple being all cute and shit? #relationshipgoals right? Like omg he got her 100 roses, got 21 balloons with Polaroid photos hanging from them and planned a private jet to New York. Omg jel, am I right?

We’re all guilty of seeing amazing couples on social media and don’t get me wrong, we’re nothing like that but we’ve had a few #relationshipgoals comments on our posts and pictures, and believe me we are flattered, we are so blessed that people think we are enough to be #goals

I’m not taking the piss out of people who comment that because I am guilty of doing it too or am I trying to sound boastful, the point of this post is that no one is goals and nothing is what it seems on social media. I know it’s been said before but for the purpose of this post, I’ll be talking about my own relationship.

First things first, James and I have just recently celebrated our 3 year anniversary, we just came back from 5 weeks of travelling together, we have been blessed to have lived together, been able to grow together, share our stories and adventures with our over on our food and travel blogs, as well as vlogs - this of course shows our happy times, our best times and our love.

Again, I’m not saying none of that is true. It definitely is but I want to express that we are not relationship goals at all.

We fight, we scream, we call each other names and do crazy ass shit. We have been through troubles that no one can even imagine. We’ve lied, we’ve hidden things and we’ve done things that the other wouldn’t like but that’s not that things you see, those are not the things we choose to show you.

I’m one moody bitch and hella spoilt but I won’t show you that ugly side because that’s not how I want to be seen, see my point here?

Heck there are things about us personally that obviously you don’t know about us, only recently have I opened up about my mental health and slowly it’s coming out more but yet I still have people tell me they would have never have thought that.

Same goes with this.
Whoever you see, doing what they’re doing over on social media. It’s never the full story.

We may be picture perfect but we are not perfect and neither is our relationship. If we were goals, then it’s because our goal is to stick by each other no matter what shit we go through because we know the other person is worth it, because we know that we are stronger than what we are fighting about, that we fully accept one another for who we are and we will continue to accept and grow together.

I am thankful for him and I am thankful for those who support us, but I know I’ve seen couples and wished for what they have because of how they portray themselves on social media, but we’re all different inside and I’m happy with who I am and with what I’ve got. Be happy with who you are and be happy with what you’ve got, #relationshipgoal or #singlepringle, you focus on you and aim for your own goal.

These are the relationship goals I try to live by as well -- it's not about what you're doing, where you're doing it, or how Instagrammable it is, but about sticking by each other! That's the real deal ❤️❤️.

This is a great post! It's true we decide to only show what we want to show and there is always a bad side to the good ones.. I guess if we all showed out bedsides this world would be so ugly lol

I think that there was a phase when every element of everyone’s relationship was posted on social media, but I think we’re slowly moving away from that, which is a good thing.. �� I do love posting pictures or including my boyfriend in posts, but there are elements that are kept private too, which is needed! ��
