The Move In.

In my previous post I talked about "5 Things They Don't Tell You About Moving In Together." I wanted to take a step further in today's post to tell you a more detailed account of things I did and have noticed about the days following the move in with my ex (almost) husband.

When we were dating and before we got married my ex (almost) husband was all about getting married after we graduated college and started a career. He was in school to become a physical therapist and it would have taken more than 5 years to complete all the schooling, etc. that he needed to start a career.

... then less than 6 months later we found out that I was pregnant with my now 3 year old... and he proposed. THIS was a red flag for my parents... why I did not listen? I don't know.

I honestly don't even remember them saying anything about it.

Other before we were married things I knew but never addressed... I knew he was a cheater. I found videos, images, text messages, etc. on his p…

Rubber Necking.


Driving down the interstate this morning on my way to work and I hit traffic, AGAIN! If you know anything about Charleston, SC then you know that there is a ton of traffic ... for NO reason!

Anyways.... so I hit traffic again... in a place that I normally cruise right through. Shortly after that I realized that the traffic was due to a car accident, however none of the lanes were blocked and there was NOTHING stopping anyone from moving on without any issues.

RUBBER NECKING.

They were aaallll rubber necking.

Have you ever noticed that we do this in life? We rubber neck on other peoples lives. We talk about their success, failures, jobs, money, and kids. Then once we have talked about all they have and compare their "amazing" life to our own we dream about how we would live if we had that life.

STOP.

"Don't compare your life to others. There's no comparison between the sun and the moon, they shine when it's their time." -Unknown

I have said all of this to say that I personally will be trying very hard not to rubber neck on other peoples lives. Through Facebook, Instagram, word of mouth, etc. My own successes are coming, but they can only come if I work for them. I don't desire to become discouraged by what I don't have right now.

I hope you will consider doing the same.

  1. Yes! This is exactly why I have cut down on social media!

  2. Social media is really a place for people to show off the good moments in life. It’s a beautiful thing, but it’s also misleading to others.
    The most beautiful and successful people on social media have struggles too.

  3. Exactly! I find myself comparing my life to others too easily when it comes to social media. Or arguing about politics. So since the start of the new year, I've barely been on.
