The original quote I saw was: “Sometimes we create our own heartbreaks through our expectations.” Sounds enlightened? New-agey-consciously-correct? Right? But I wholeheartedly disagree with this language. And it’s at the root of most of the confusion within healthy, or rather unhealthy, relationship dynamics.
My friends, family, past boyfriends and my husband all say I'm so different to most people and thats why they love me. I grew up thinking it was an insult when someone would say I was different. Now I see it as a compliment. I like being different. At least I'm original.
