True Lust

If there is anything that I have learned in my 15 years of life, it's that people, as a whole, are very stubborn. This idea is proven time and time again as it shines through the very way we interact with each other. Very rarely do you witness, what some people would refer to as soul mates. These are people who have a tremendous chemistry with each other that could not possible be fraud. Occasionally you will find a couple who meets and exceeds these standards, but for the most part, it does not happen - and I believe that this is true because of our stubborn nature.
The average couple's relationship is built on many things - including stubbornness and lust. Somewhere along the line, the human race had lost sight of what it really means to be in love with someone who shares the same feelings for you. We are all in such a hurry to find someone that we don't take the time to find the right someone. When we become involved in a relationship that’s not healthy for us, we’re too stubborn to admit that anything is wrong and get out of it before hearts are broken. It all comes down to the fact that we don't want to admit that we were wrong to begin with.
People believe that if a marriage doesn't work out, that a divorce is completely acceptable. In fact, it's completely normal nowadays for a married couple to get a divorce. In my book, however, a divorce is unnecessary and wrong. We shouldn't put ourselves in those situations to begin with. Granted, there are some exceptions - as with anything - but for the most part, the blame is on both persons in the relationship. Don’t let a relationship built on lust get this far. If you feel that something isn't right to begin with - get this - it probably isn't! And if you don’t get along with someone now, what makes you think you will later? The prospect of marriage and true love is precious and shouldn't be toyed with or thrown around. We need to stop being so stubborn and do what is truly right for us and others.
No one is perfect. I myself have made a lot of mistakes as well, and I learned many things the hard way. I was involved in a mentally abusive relationship for nearly two years before doing anything about it. The reason I stayed with this person for so long was because I wanted to prove everyone wrong, including myself. I knew from a very early stage that I and this person were not good for each other, but I stayed with him because I felt that I loved him and because everyone told me that we wouldn't make it. I was too stubborn to see that I was hurting myself, but one day I snapped. I decided that I was going to live a happy and truly loving life - and because of that epiphany - I am.
There is so much in life to be thankful for and love, but because of bad relationships, most people don't get to experience them. We need to keep our minds open and our hearts fulfilled. After all, life's too short to be anything but happy.
