Addicted to Love: Is the grass really greener?

Back in the day most people were only exposed to so many others along their journey in life. These days however,  due to technology and connectivity we are able to meet people who we can chat and engage with all over the globe. Not only that, but we can still meet people in person, by using online apps and social media, and in so many other fun ways. It opens up a whole world our predecessors couldn’t even imagine.

With that new world that is open to us comes the good and the bad. The good mean’s you can learn from all over the world without going, stay up to the minute with news globally, and stay closely connected with people pretty much everywhere there is internet access. On the down side, when it comes to relationships this means there are a lot of people to choose from. This is something that I’ve really started to notice personally, especially living here in Toronto, a city with millions of people.

So out of all those people how do you know who is right? And when we find that “right” person isn’t there a really great chance we will come across or even meet many other people that could be a perfect fit too? Maybe an even better then the person we are with?

Is the grass really greener? It seems that people really do seem to think so. With break-up/divorce/separation at a really high percentage you would have to figure statistically a lot of those people are leaving one relationship to enter into another, among of course many other reasons.

I’ve found in my life that sometimes when we know what to expect from one scenario, when an unexpected situation presents itself, aka an outside crush, we can then make it into the outcome that we want in our minds. Not having experienced it for ourselves, it can ofter seem so much better then what the reality is.

The key to really deciding if the “Grass is Greener” is asking if you are currently happy with where you are? Are you happy with the person you are committed to? Do they make your life better by being there? If you answered yes, then you are probably already on the brighter side. If not, maybe it’s time to take a big, maybe scary, but probably worth it, step, and walk to the other side.
