You know those slasher films, where the stupid teenagers decide to split up to go looking for a murderer? The movies where you KNOW what’s going to happen and you just DON’T UNDERSTAND why those teenagers are such idiots? Well I’m pretty sure that can be applied to relationships too. Like when you see your friend making the same mistakes she always makes while you’re just sitting there like WHY CAN’T YOU SEE WHAT YOU’RE DOING?
But then you end up in the exact same position with the most successful tunnel vision that’s ever occurred in the history of mankind. We all have certain patterns that we’re comfortable with which tends to cause history to repeat itself. To what extent do we try to change these habits, though? To what extent should we accept certain aspects about ourselves, rather than trying to change them, and instead make the most of what we have?
At some point we’re all saddled with some sort of baggage. I mean all a relationship really is is two people whose issues are compatible. Try as we might to improve our weaknesses, we’re all flawed and we always will be.
