Everything I needed to know about my relationship I learned from a girl meets world episode.

I grew up watching boy meets world and when the spin off was announced I was excited. It doesn't have the same awesomeness but I watch anyways for when they bring back the old crew and when I am sick I like to watch the simplicity of the Disney Channel shows, and I was just in the ER last night so watching it on Netflix worked out and gave me some solid relationship advice I have been needing to hear. 

It this Episode. 

Riley and Lucas’s classmates are curious as to what’s going on with their relationship, which ultimately confuses them more than ever before.

I get that. People saying, 

Why haven't you changed your facebook profile. 

Does he call his girlfriend? 

Maybe he's just using you. 

Why is he still on Okcupid (even though he doesn't use it) 

I know what we are and I am fine with it but sometimes these things can get into your head. 

Does this mean you are boyfriend and girlfriend the show asks. 

"Those are just words, Riley. Words don’t change people.”

So true, I know what we are. I don't need words to change that. Our actions say Relationship, Boyfriend, couple. Why do we have to label it? 

I'm a go with the flow kind of girl and I tend to be fine with whatever (Waffle Fri would call me a people pleaser) so he'll ask me 

"do you want to go to the store?" Or see this movie or have scrambled eggs. 

and I always say "Do you?" 

and like this conversation in this show they said things because they felt pressure to instead of saying what they wanted and I guess I feel pressure to make Waffle Fri happy. We've talked about this very much and he always tells me this isn't how conversations work. so I'm learning. We're are making each other better :) Sadly it became much more clear to me seeing it happen to another person. 

This show has its flaws but it really helped me today on my days of resting. Helped to not feel the pressure to please people. Don't feel the pressure to move faster in my relationship. 

The wrong pressure turns you into dust.
