Stop Comparing Your Romance to those On the Big Screen
There are many reasons why your romance will never measure up to those on
the big screen. If you’re constantly comparing your relationship, then
you’ll never be satisfied and both of you will end up being hurt in the
long run. You might be curious about why it’s such a bad thing to compare
your relationship to those “picture perfect” relationships in Hollywood.
Here are a few good reasons why your relationship will never measure up to
theirs and why that’s a good thing.
Hollywood Films have Professional Script Writers
More importantly, these scriptwriters spend hours agonizing over the right
words and sequence of events to create a plausible conversation. And they
have control of all sides of the conversation. In real world
relationships, you only get control of what comes out of your own mouth
and that’s tenuous at best in the heat of the moment.
You Don’t get to Start the Scene Over When it Doesn’t Play Out Right
The more heated the discussion becomes, the less control you seem to have
over the words coming out of your mouth. That doesn’t happen in Hollywood.
The director just cuts the scene and takes a break when things aren’t
flowing the right way. You don’t get an opportunity to “un-ring” bells in
real life. Once it’s come out of your mouth, it’s there. In all its glory
and for the one person who means the most in the world to hear.
The Actors Put their Characters to Bed, Alone, Each Night
After a long day of practice, script reading, and careful staging or
choreography, the actors leave their characters behind and return to their
own lives. That’s not a luxury you have when you’re comparing your
relationship to those on the Silver Screen. You’re comparing something
real — your own relationship — to something that’s make believe and
temporary at best.
Actors in the movies don’t have to decide who pulls the midnight shift for
diaper duty. They don’t have to fight over who washes dishes or even who
gets control of the remote control for the evening or any of the other
petty worries that cause discontentment in modern relationships.
At the end of the day, everything in Hollywood is the work of an entire
team of people working towards one common goal. Hair is always picture
perfect; makeup is just right, music, mood lighting, and script in place
to produce a little magic on the screen. These things, while enchanting in
pictures, fall flat and just shy of satisfying in real life. In the end,
you’d grow tired of the façade and run off in search of the real deal or
relationship gold. That’s why it’s better to skip out on the perfect front
Hollywood presents and go for something a little heartier in your own
