Taking Control of Tricky Relationships



There is one picture that is painted over and over again that represents what relationships during your engagement “should” look like. It’s a picture of large families that get along well and gather frequently to celebrate. It’s a picture of the closest group of friends wearing silky floral robes and sipping champagne on the morning of. It’s the picture perfect image that is nothing more than a staged and posed single moment. 

Even though you know that those magazine spreads and Insta posts aren’t the whole story, you can’t help but feel that you’re missing out on something each time someone lets you down. You can’t help but feel robbed of what could have been when no matter how hard you try to keep things simple, somebody is right around the corner, ready to make things difficult.
