.tough love.

I love the show Tough Love on vh1. It's soo good! But it makes me think about and question the importance of people's opinions on others and their relationships. Of course when you seek the advice of a match maker, you are putting a lot of thought into those opinions but why should that all really matter? I know this may seem a bit sketchy and all over the place, but I really find it so interesting that people care so much about the opinions, thoughts and feelings of others.

What does it matter what someone thinks? I really don't understand. If you are happy that's all that matters. Why should your actions be altered or reserved because you are nervous of what others will say or think? At the end of the day, YOUR happiness it's what's important. Not making someone else who is on the outside happy. I do understand the pressure that others place on you to do things "their" way. I had that issue with my friends for as long as I can remember. My friends and family make my happiness a top notch thing, so they are sometimes overbearing with what I should and shouldn't do, but I always end up doing what I want. I encourage you to do the same. What does their opinion matter?

I don't think I will ever understand the power of other people's opinions. I know several people who are so cautious of everything they do and say because they don't want people to comment and I completely get it. I can imagine the discouragement that one may face. But the sooner you relax, and just live your life and go with the flow of things, then you will notice the absence of the comments, remarks and opinions. As long as you are making your partner, or "that person" happy, that's all that really matters.

No one really cares that much. I promise. If I don't care what they say or think, you shouldn't either.
