Love from my point of view has always been a train wreck. I meet someone, we date, we break up, I’m heartbroken, start all over again. It’s a never ending cycle of suffering and disappointment. Being exposed to the dating world for a little while now I could never understand why a good looking man or woman would cheat on his or her significant other. It was always unfathomable to me the act of cheating on a loved one, it seemed surreal and the pain it brings seems only to get worse and worse after the realization that one has been cheated on. After hearing the news of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart I felt sick. It was their romance that I looked up to, that thousands of other girls looked up to. It was as if there existed a little world with just women who developed hope in their life, just because of Rob and Kristen. They seemed different, like they could endure anything and everything the world threw at them; and this belief made it possible for every day women to never give up and keep looking for their one true love. Well, unfortunately that world was shattered when KRISTEN, not Rob, cheated on the man of all of our dreams. What is most shocking is that it was not a man who went behind a woman’s back, it was the girl, the girl who we all wanted to be. I never understood how normal people would do this to the ones they love, but famous role models we dream about, I just don’t know anymore.
I want to be mad and angry at Kristen, an individual I have never met, but in a way I feel like I am able to relate to her and Rob in a deeper lever. This whole scandal tells me that no matter who we are, no matter what we look like, how much money we have, we are still vulnerable to the pain and suffering that comes along with loving another person. There is no exclusive club in which one can become a member of and become immune to all the horrible things this nasty world has to offer. There is no secret code a person can attain to avoid getting hurt in relationships. I am an average girl who has gotten her heart broken, but just because a couple I looked up to turned out to be just like every other couple any average person knows, does not mean I am going to lose hope for my love life. AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU. We are all the same, no matter what anyone says. Pretty, skinny, tall, fat, we all have the same feelings and the same aspirations. So, instead of looking at Rob and Kristen in a negative way, we need to see them as a heartbroken couple that will need to work hard if they are ever going to make their relationship work again. Love dies, but it has the supernatural ability to be born over and over and over again.
Till next time,
