If you had the opportunity to attend a university after graduating from high school, then you understand the infinite independence that encompasses the college experience. You take a beer bong with one of your teaching assistants. The one experience some of you may find or have found while in college is love.
But, sometimes, you may find yourself changing in a way that's not for the better. These are all questions I asked myself, and they all served the same purpose: fulfilling my dream of what I wanted to do with my life.When I was in college and shortly after graduation, I changed my mind countless times regarding what I wanted to do once I got my degree. While my college girlfriend at the time was supportive of most of my goals, she always questioned how I would make enough money to support her and a possible future family.Obviously, every decision I made was my own, but I had sacrificed what I really wanted to do based on the needs and desires of another person.I didn't pursue the original goals I had set for myself because I cared about and valued my partner’s opinion.You may even currently be in a relationship with the man or woman you met in college. I'm here to tell you about my college relationship and why it didn't last.
I want to make those who have had a similar experience to mine realize it's okay the relationship ended.If you’re in a college relationship now, you need to talk with your partner to make sure both of you see the relationship lasting beyond your realm of college.A relationship you can only picture existing inside of this college bubble is not one that will last.You are in this bubble of a college campus, focused on papers, midterms and partying.You don’t give much thought to what the world holds for you beyond your college life.Whatever the light at the end of your college tunnel may be, that goal is yours. During these four years, your goals are always changing, and different experiences can have different influences on such goals.
