Don’t quote me!
So often when one laments the end of a relationship and / or ponders how to have a successful one, people churn out statements like: “You need to know yourself 1st”. Oft followed by one that really gets up my nose: “Just relax and it’ll happen”..
I can only presume they’ve seen the moronic quote (shown below) and totally bought into it. Cos yeah, we all know that the best way to achieve something is to do nothing .. !?
Now to be fair, most times when I’m presented with those and / or other trite quotes I’ll simply think “bollocks” to myself and if I’m in a nice mood I’ll smile (read: ignore their stupidity) but every now and then the bitch in me jumps into the conversation (before I can slap her into submission) and I set to trying to get the offending person to see that not only are their comments dumb, they’re actually kinda thoughtless.
If you stop to think about it, love is a topic that is just perfect to bring about a profusion of confusion!
After all, I am meant to just sit back and it’ll magically happen, remember. Oh but of course, I need to remember that relationships require work and effort. But uh, isn’t the act of knowing myself, understanding what I need or like kinda not “just letting it happen”?
All depends who you talk to and what their experiences and beliefs are, as to which sort of quote they’re going to like and spout when they feel it’s apt.
To find some ammo for this post I actually googled “Love quotes” and was presented with thousands of contradictory (for all they were mostly nice) quotes that really would just make me sound like a wanker if I put them in such a grumpy themed post, so instead I will post this one (below) .
Cos I found myself nodding and smiling when I saw it!
yeah yeah, I know .. hapless romantic here. Byte me.
