First and foremost, their relationship is none of my business - in all actuality, I shouldn’t be forming opinions on them as a couple because I don’t know them. I can’t judge either of them and I don’t want to make assumptions on people when I don’t have a place in their life.
I want them to be happy. I want the boys to be happy with what they do, and I want Ashton to be happy - and if he’s found that with Bryana, then who am I to say no, he can’t be with her? Who am I in his life to step in between his happiness? Who am I to try and take that away? If he’s happy with her, let him be happy. Whatever it is that they have, it’s between them. He can make his own decisions and he has his reasons and quite frankly, that’s none of my business. He is smiling and he is happy and that’s all I want for him. It’s what he deserves, and I’m glad he has a reason to smile every day, no matter if you disagree with it.
And I know Bryana’s track record isn’t exactly squeaky clean, but again, I don’t know her - or Ashton for that matter - and I sure as hell am not going to base an entire person on a few social media accounts and some tabloids. Yes, we do get a bit of a picture of who she is, and yes, maybe it’s not the greatest picture in the world, but please remember that people can surprise you. If there is one thing I’ve learned, it’s that people will constantly surprise you. I know that the seemingly douchey jock will answer the questions in class when no one else does and I know that the player in the back has depression and will help if I had the courage to ask him for it and I know that the welcoming girl that I first met turns into a very thirsty jealous abuser and the point is, we’re so caught up in our preconceived notions of others and we’re so quick to label them as the people we think they are when people are so, so complex and you aren’t going to know that unless you actually interact with them.
And this all leads back to the fact that I have never interacted with Ashton or Bryana, and I only ‘know’ them for this idea of them I have in my head based on social media and stuff I read. And I don’t want to form opinions based on that - based on carefully constructed images and other’s opinions. Ashton and Bryana know each other and I know neither of them, and it’s not in my place to judge when I’m very clearly not in that loop. So all these speculations, these predictions, these warnings in regards to this relationship - I call bullshit. None of us truly knows either of them and you can’t tell me that Instagram accounts or interviews or keeks makes me part of their personal life. But they know each other past that, and if they’re happy with what they found, then god forbid a horde of strangers try to stop that.
People will surprise you. And maybe you won’t like it, but that’s the truth of it when you don’t really know them for who they are. So please, drink lots of water, get lots of sunlight, and worry about the people that you do know in your life - it’s okay to dabble with some curiosity, but don’t force yourself into a place that you have no position to be in.
