Love Should Add Value To Your Life
Every magazine, TV show and social media site has been talking about Katie Holmes divorcing Tom Cruise. Now I'm not a huge fan of either Tom Cruise or Katie Holmes, but I'm happy to see that she's finally decided to leave what appeared to be a toxic relationship.
I recently clicked on a link (to be honest I can't remember where I saw it....probably on Facebook) where it showed pictures of Katie past and present and you can actually see the life sucked out of her when she hooked up with Tom Cruise. You can see how unhappy she was in a lot of the pictures especially in the latter years of their relationship. Even when she smiled it seemed unnatural and forced.
I remember seeing an interview when they first started going out together and she said that being with Tom Cruise was a dream come true and that she had a crush on him growing up and it was surreal for her to be in a relationship with him now. And because of that I think that she put of with a lot of crap just to be his wife.
It's sad to think that there are tons of people out there who stay with people they know they shouldn't be with just to 'save face.' I guess the point of this blog post was to encourage somebody out there to find the courage to stand up and be who they are not who someone else wants them to be. Stop staying in that toxic relationship for the single fact that you don't want to be alone. Or you think that you somehow deserve the way you are being treated.
The lesson to be learned is that the person that you're with needs to make you a better person. They should never bring you down, demean you or purposely hurt you (emotionally/physically/spiritually/financially etc). They should be able to bring out the best in you and allow you to shine and help you to grow past where ever they met you. The should compliment you and complete you. You two should partner together to tackle this thing called life together.
I truly wish Katie and Tom all the best with their new lives.
