Bonding & Just Being Together….

You know what I love!? The show that is The Masked Singer, now before I continue, I just want to say that this post was going to be all about The Masked Singer and how great it is in my words, but then I started writing and I felt it change into a different topic as I continued soo it’s not just going to be about the Masked Singer…..it might end up being a little deeper than that….maybe, we’ll see where it goes…..back to part of the Masked Singer, like I said I love that show, I can’t even tell you how much I love it!

It’s such a cool and interesting concept to sometimes wrap your head around, but you love anyway! It’s obviously a singing show, but with a more unexpected twist to it and it’s just beautiful!! I always watch the show with my mom, we both enjoy it and I won’t watch it without her! I do that with everyone though, if I start a show with someone or I know there’s a specific movie that I like, but is also a favorite to someone close to me, it’s not just a regular movie or show anymore, it turns into a tradition shared with someone you love and means a lot to you!

For example featuring a confession time:

I won’t watch the movie Grease or watch the show Jane The Virgin without my guy/partner I can’t do it! Especially Grease like even clips of Grease moments or hearing some of the songs is a no go, well I can hear the songs now a bit…..I have two of them on both my Spotify and regular phone music, but when I’m missing him loads…..it’s really hard to hear them! I have the movie and I love the movie, it’s one of my favorites…..but I won’t watch it without him at all, because it’s our movie so yeah lol!

Anytime I think of watching something that was shared with somebody, I won’t watch it and the same goes with specific songs too…..if a song reminds me of someone, it can be hard to listen to at times, not always, but there are moments that I’ve had where a song that I love or enjoy has played and I quickly change it because it reminded me of someone! There are songs that I do let play even if it reminds me of a specific person, it really depends though on the song and what memory comes with it!

It might be a weird thing to not want to watch or listen to something because someone specific isn’t around to watch it with you or because you get a moment in time that plays out when hearing a specific song that has you thinking of that person, but I don’t see it like that! The way I see it, if you are watching something with someone else, listening to a song that gives you those fond memories or just doing something in general with that person…..you are sharing something and being open and inviting to want to have that experience with just that person and no one else…..it’s a bonding experience as well as being/spending together and enjoying this special thing at the same time!

We can enjoy these things by ourselves of course, but there’s just something about having that special bond with someone and both of you just happy to share those moments together! That’s a different experience, different feeling in itself and again it may be weird to some people and it might get seen as corny, don’t ask me why I chose to say that word, it was the first one that came to mind…but I don’t care because I love those moments where it’s shared with someone close to you and you see the other person enjoying it the same way you are!

My favorite is when you’re showing someone something they haven’t watched/listened to or maybe haven’t experienced yet and as they are learning about it for the first time, you’re there looking for their reaction to see if they’re liking it or not (hopefully I used all that correct) I don’t know how to explain it, but those first time moments are one of the best, because you’re getting the most honest reactions that you’re only going to see once! 9/10 most of the things that you like, isn’t always going to be something someone else likes…..

When that happens you have to learn to accept people not having the same interest as you, cause in reality it’s going to happen…..however there will be times where you both are showing interests into something and you find out that you both either really like it or you hate it! One of you may even enjoy it more while the other isn’t for it as much!

It’s the process of the thing, trial and error, but at the same time you learn something new with it and you grow to know someone as well with what they like and don’t like! It’s nothing personal if someone doesn’t enjoy the same things you do same goes vice versa, at the end of the day, it’s all about being together and being open to giving these moments a try even if it’s not your best cup of joe or tea! What’s important is the experience as well as bonding and enjoying each other’s company!

All The Love ❤ ❤
