People in our lives also expressed the fear that if we were to stay together, we may never have a “normal” life.
And, although we've been together for more than a year and a half, live together, and are planning a future with one another, individuals still find it difficult to understand why we have chosen each other.
I believe that this is someone else’s issue and not my own.
I am aware that people often judge what they do not understand.
Just a month ago, we had to have talk about whether or not we should stay together or break up — simply because of the pressure put on us from hearing so many critical opinions about our relationship.
We've had to ask if it's worth listening to other people’s opinions to potentially give up the best relationship we have both ever had.
Ultimately, my boyfriend and I have concluded that our love is too deep, intense, and “once-in-a-lifetime” to let it go.
There are days when the weight of it all leaves me immobilized, sad, and unable to focus on anything.
So, how do I cope when the judgments become overwhelming?
I have learned a few things to help me get by, and to remind me that our love is worth fighting for:1.
I remind myself that no one can predict the future.
