Why You Shouldn’t Care Being The Trophy Girlfriend
Posted in: LIFE AND HOME
You were a straight-A student since you were in kindergarten, graduated with Latin honors in university, and earned your law degree or medical degree from a prestigious elite school and everyone thinks you’re a trophy girlfriend they’re willing to introduce to their friends. Problem is, you already have a boyfriend and you know for a fact that this relationship is for real but people are on a doubt about your special someone’s true love for you. As one Taylor Swift song goes “So don’t you worry your pretty little mind, people throwing rocks at things that shine and life makes love look hard”. Before getting antsy about all their opinions, here are some reasons why you really shouldn’t care if people think your boyfriend is no good at all since they treat you as a trophy girlfriend:
You don’t need to please people and prove anything to them
Your living your life which might probably be a dream to many and no matter what you do, people will always have something to say. Keep in mind that whatever they talk about you, it’s none of your business. The less you care, the less stress you’ll be having in life. Always remember that you were not born in this lifetime to prove anything to anybody. You’re great and wonderful just the way you are, and pleasing people is not one of your main agenda.
You don’t really treat yourself as a trophy girlfriend
What’s wrong with society is that they put labels and tags to people as if a person’s career is a determining factor of how successful and how good he will become. A person’s success is not measured by what title he holds, how much money he earns, how many properties and cars he owns, but success is more personal. It’s when a person does something he is passionate about, and that’s what most shallow people miss. Even if you hold the title of being Miss Universe, or you are UN’s Ambassador of peace, what is important is that you don’t really treat yourself as a trophy girlfriend. You go past behind the labels and brands imprinted on you because you know there’s more to life than being superficial.
It’s your life, your rules and choices
Who cares if you’re going to marry a mailman, a cameraman or a fireman? The world raised their eyebrows when Pretty Woman star Julia Roberts married an ordinary cameraman named Daniel Moder while she was filming her movie The Mexican. Fifteen years from that first meeting, Julia is still happily in love and has no regrets ever since. What’s wrong as being treated as a trophy girlfriend by others is that they always think you deserve better but the most important thing here is that you know better than they do. It’s your life, your rules, your choices, and you don’t need the approval of others how to live your life.
Love is more important, who cares anyway?
No matter how cheesy it may sound but love does conquer all. Explain this to a hopeless romantic and she will most likely speak the same language you have when it comes to love and romance. As long as you are happy with your choices and as long as that choice of yours give you that euphoric bliss and happiness, who cares really? Love is more important than people’s nonsensical approach to life, isn’t it?
