Being Enough: How 'Relationship Goals' Can Make Us Feel Otherwise
How many times have we seen a tweet or Instagram post and started to question ourselves?
I used to avoid dating because I was waiting on my life to be perfect. I did not want to commit to anyone until I could afford bi-annual baecations, and lay up with my man in my luxury apartment. I realized that I was wasting so much time trying to live by a timeline I can't predict. Yes, I'm in control of my life. However, I will never find love or happiness under conditions.
For example, "I'll be happy once I get a new car." Or, "I'll date when I find a guy who's not on social media."
Do me a favor. Forget about the $200 dates and splitting rent trending topics on Twitter. Scroll past the "Where are all of the good women who stay at home on the weekends?" post. Live your life based on your rules. If you're in a relationship, be your own goals. If you're single, focus on pursuing someone when you feel ready.
You don't need a viral meme to determine your standards and ideas of dating.
I have begun a brand new journey of self-love now that I have stopped looking for validation on the Internet. Every morning I look in the mirror and say:
I am happy.
I love and accept myself exactly as I am right now.
I am worthy.
I am enough.
I have enough.
I am worthy of healthy, romantic love.
