The other day I shared a FB post about celebrating 18 years of marriage.
I shared that during this time we experienced many moments of love as well as that we struggled. That we experienced some exciting adventures together and that it sometimes was just boring. That we made a lot of money and we lost it all. That serious illness was part of the game for many years. As was the process of healing.
Amongst many congratulations, smileys and “way to go” messages, there were questions about me daring to share all this personal stuff.
Let’s get real..
What is personal about talking about ups in relationships? What is personal to talk about downs in relationships. What makes us keep up appearances and play the “pretending everything is fine” game.
You know what?
F*CK “keeping up appearances” .
Do this instead.
