I don’t always recognize or appreciate what I have. I tend to look at everyone around me to measure if what I have is good enough. How low of me I know. And it took me a while to understand that you can never and should never base what you have on what someone else has. I have noticed that a lot of relationships are built on lies or contracts. And the relationships that I was looking it hasn’t lasted because what I thought that my marriage had to measure up to be is not true. You could be looking at something that seems right on the outside but is so full of destruction on the inside. How foolish of me to ever do this when I first got married. I didn’t know any better. I heard so many people compare their relationships to others so I felt like it was normal. One piece of advice I would love to give others is please don’t look at someone else’s relationship and feel like yours have to be this way. There is nothing wrong with modeling your relationship after someone else’s only if you know them. Don’t look at people you don’t know because it might look good on the outside, but please water your grass before you get envious of someone else’s grass.
