We have a TV drama in Australia that depicts many of its characters moving from crisis to crisis, while moving with equal speed from bed to bed. Confessions of undying love are followed quickly by conflicting feelings that are soon acted on to repeat the destructive cycle of the "relationship merry-go-round"
But the real tragedies are being played out in real lives, in real homes across Australia ........and beyond.
The euphoric feelings that accompany fresh love are exciting and highly desirable. I would certainly rather live with them than without.
So how do we keep those delicious feelings of romantic love alive while avoiding another spin on the "Relationship Merry-Go-Round" as played out on our TV screens?
Are TV dramas guilty of shaping our beliefs and expectations of relationships or are they a condensed commentary on real life experiences? I'm going to say both are true, but the choice is always ours, as to what we believe and how our life and relationships play out.
