Forever My Girl is a movie about dreams, lost love, and facing your demons. Check out our movie review.

Should you see it:

Yes. Who hasn’t been faced with the difficult decision between one’s own dreams and love? Filled with music, what more can one ask for in a heart-warming story?

Who to take:

We have a feeling that the men in your life won’t be big fans. This film isn’t action-packed nor does it have any explosions. Instead, the movie focuses on matters of the heart, and for some guys, this makes them uncomfortable. Go with a group of friends to have something to discuss over drinks after the movie!

Cupid’s Advice:

Facing the decision between love and personal dreams is a difficult one that we hope no one has to face. Ideally, your love will support your dreams, but sacrifice is a part of any relationship. Does that mean you have to give up your goals? Read Cupid’s relationship advice to help you through the tough decisions relationships face:

1. Patience: Sometimes it’s just not the right time. That sounds terrible, right? Dreams are something to work on, constantly. They’re life-long goals. As much as we may want a dream to come true right away, there are good reasons dreams may take longer than we want. You may want to blame your partner for your dreams taking longer than you would like, but consider the benefits of waiting. You’ll be more capable and ready for your dream whenever it comes. In the meantime, keep working and be ready for the opportunity.

2. Compromise: When you’re in a relationship, compromise is expected. If your family is having a hard time staying afloat, whether it’s finances, time, affection, you may have to put your dreams on the back burner. That doesn’t mean completely give up on your personal dreams. Find a way to invest a little time in for yourself, even if it’s only a couple of hours a week.

3. Leave: If you’re feeling controlled or unsupported, it may be time to consider if the relationship you’re in supports the vision you have for your life. It’s important to evaluate expectations versus reality. Do you have expectations that are destroying your happiness? Become grateful for what you have. But if you evaluate reality and realize that you’re not receiving the support you need for your dreams, if you’re being treated like your goals don’t matter, then it’s time to leave and fight for your own happiness.
