I don’t read romance novels. And if I encounter relationships in books, I despise angsty romances.
So, today I’m not gonna discuss with you about my top five angsty ships. (That’s right. Those above aren’t my pick. Those are just examples.) Hell, I don’t even ship. I wanna discuss with you why I think this kind of romance is unhealthy.
People who have dark thoughts might be murderous. Yeah, I know it’s probably because I watch too much Criminal Minds, but I’m not joking. I’d certainly want to talk to this kind of people, but…having a romantic relationship? What if we break up? I might get killed!
People who are depressed might commit suicide. You and I both know I’m not joking. When you are depressed, you think you are weak, you think you are useless, you don’t love yourself. And if you can’t live yourself, how can you love other people? Besides, if we break up, will you commit suicide? And if you succeed, I’ll be the one to blame, by your parents!
People with anger management problem might do something like…domestic violence. They get jealous easily and they become over-protective. Oh, oh…fight scene, fight scene, and fight scene.
So…yeah. That’s my general thought on Angsty Romance. Not working for me, darling.
It’s all for my Top Five Wednesday this week. Thanks for reading. Let me know what you think.
Have a nice day and I’ll see you next time. Bye bye 👋
