I have known for a long time that society’s idea of intimate relationships doesn’t jive with me. I would listen to people complain about their spouses and wonder why and how it became fun and acceptable to joke about the abuse we cause and/or put up with. Truly, many of the relationship humor we see nowadays is about partner neglect and even psychological abuse.
The mainstream acceptance of this is a large part of why so many people don’t challenge the status quo. Yes, we live in a patriarchal society, but don’t get me started on that!
In fact, I could rant and rave about all kinds of disservice I see in today’s media regarding relationships, but instead I will share the video of a woman who speaks of Radical Love.
I read Wendy O. Matik’s book Redefining Our Relationships a few years ago, and it affirmed so much that I felt deep down to be true, and why I couldn’t seem to fit into these “relationship models” society projects onto us.
I welcome your comments, and I hope that what you hear in this video resonates with you.
