My first vlog

 

I was going to wait until my space was a little more organised before taking the first video but I went to Greece for the bank holiday a few days ago and while I was there something happened that I really wanted to share. So I thought, oh well, and recorded the story replacing the real names of those involved.

Cheating has been happening since the beginning of time but that doesn’t make it okay, or does it?

Here’s my thinking: if I’m looking to cheat on my person, it means that I am unhappy in my relationship. This doesn’t necessarily have to lead to a break up but it definitely shows that there is a conversation that needs to be had. The problem is that most people are scared of change and that makes it hard to start an honest conversation with oneself, let alone someone they love.

Personally, cowardice and dishonesty put me off altogether for the simple reason that people who are like that seem unwilling to take control and be in charge of their own lives and happiness.

It takes bravery to be honest and willing to face hard truths. But you can’t have a meaningful relationship without honesty. As Donna in Suits puts it:

“…but if we can’t tell each other the hard truths, then what are we doing?”

The way I see it, being honest is a duty we all have to ourselves. How else can we figure out life and be happy?

Thanks for watching! I look forward to hearing your thoughts!

PS. I’m still in the process of moving into my new room in London and I’ve just managed to sort out the internet so I’ll be keeping the blog a little more active 🙂
