So yeah...it took a lot of "soul searching" but I ended the "relationship" last year because I realized I truly wasn't happy. I was holding onto something that wasn't worth suffering for and if there's something that I learned from this is that... real love just doesn't happen through video calls and emails. I am now dating this girl that is amazingly nice, beautiful, talented, has the same dreams as me (wants to be a musician and make music for films) and most importantly, lives near me. I'm planning to move out to LA this year and she's on board to make the sacrifice with me. I've never felt so content and happy...
Another thing I learned... don't use social media as a way to validate your love for someone. something that I really struggled with before but i've learned my lesson... grand gestures (like below) are awesome but should never be your way of showing you love someone. Love is when both sides put in the daily work to make the relationship great. The girl i'm with now is independent, smart, and mature...accepts me for who I am and I just couldn't be more thankful happy to have the person I love by my side on a daily basis.
Cliffnotes or things to know beforehand lol:
we both truly love each other but keeping the title as "best friends" until we're officially together and have her parents' blessing. biggest problem is my career as a filmmaker and her parents worried if it'll be a stable career. I completely understand them but I would never consider letting go of my dreams just to please someone. she on the other hand is fully supportive and doesn't mind waiting until I am capable of moving out there to Australia or being successful in America and having her move here.
I also see this as such a blessing because I am able to devote most of my time focusing on honing my craft and really improving my skills without having to worry about weekly dates that cost money and time...arguing in person, fighting on a daily basis, feeling obligated to spend every free minute together. there's a blessing to every situation
