Model and actress Ruby Rose penned a heartfelt, honest letter on Instagram about finding love, losing love, and finding it again—and her message is resonating with a lot of people. She began by sharing about her own parents who were never married and therefore never dealt with divorce. "I do remember how many of my friends were effected [sic] by this later in life," Rose wrote. "I couldn't relate, but I tried to understand why it was hard on them. After 20 years and beautiful kids, they have grown apart and want to do different things.. Seems reasonable... The only way they got over it was by realizing their parents were humans just like them."

 

Rose went on to say that sometimes relationships come to "an amicable end [and] you can understand sometimes it's just what happens… I believe that you were meant to spend that time with that person, no one can take that away… It isn't always meant to last forever."

 

Surprising Things That Lead to a Lasting Marriage

But when love doesn't last, Rose explained how the spotlight can make things even more difficult for celebrity relationships. "I get it that [fans] invest in couples and root for them and it's sweet, but that relationship is still only between two people," Rose said. "If the relationship ends why do people assume something happened or someone is to blame? … Love is a beautiful thing. Some love one person their whole life, others love many, some never find love, and sadly some get so hurt so many times they get broken and stop looking. So if a woman moves on from a relationship 8 months ( or 2 weeks ) after a breakup isn't that beautiful? That someone can still continue to open their hearts to people despite times in their lives I'm sure it's been broken."

 

Relationship Secrets from Married Celebrities

While many have speculated that Rose's reflections are about Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris's recent breakup, the Australian beauty shut down the rumors, tweeting, "My statement on love... It's not about one person in particular it is about many, including myself.."

 

Rose is no stranger to Swift's situation: She recently started dating Harley Gusman after she and former fiancée Phoebe Dahl split amicably in December.

 

"I personally respect all of the people who never get jaded, who always love with their whole hearts," Rose concluded. "I think it's twisted that we shame women for opening their hearts or label it as a weakness when in reality it's one of the scariest things to do. Date who you want, love who you want, love is the most valuable thing in the world and nothing comes remotely close to its significance during our time on this planet." Preach!

I feel like this is the mentality fans have on celebrity relationships.. I get it that they invest in couples and root for them and it's sweet, but that relationship is still only between two people. If the relationship ends why do people assume something happened or someone is to blame? Why do they think they know anything about the relationship to be able to make a better call than those in it? Love is a beautiful thing. Some love one person their whole life, others love many, some never find love, and sadly some get so hurt so many times they get broken and stop looking. So if a woman moves on from a relationship 8 months ( or 2 weeks ) after a breakup isn't that beautiful? That someone can still continue to open their hearts to people despite times in their lives I'm sure it's been broken.. It's not an insult to every ex they have ever had...new love never erases old love. It's a separate thing, a new entity. You can't change the people you loved just be glad you loved at all they are all lessons and memories and make up our life story. I personally respect all of the people who never get jaded, who always love with their whole hearts. Over and over and I think it's twisted that we shame women for opening their hearts or label it as a weakness when in reality it's one of the scariest things to do. Date who you want, love who you want, love is the most valuable thing in the world and nothing comes remotely close to its significance during our time on this planet. So next time you want to tell me who I should be with or who anyone should be with... Maybe just use that energy to find your love. Because trust me.. We are adults and we know how to follow our hearts.
