Growth may be uncomfortable, but it's so worth it, sis.

Just ask the cast of Netflix's new reality dating show, Love Is Blind, who has spent the past year and a half on an emotional rollercoaster that no one saw coming. On the show, 5 couples got engaged without ever seeing each other in person, and after being whisked away to a romantic vacation in Mexico, they were thrust back into the real world where they were bombarded by opinions of family and friends, the distractions of social media, and faced with many side eyes and random pitfalls as they planned their weddings.

Last week, xoNecole hit up City Winery to see which couples' flames were still burning since their wedding day in 2018 and I'ma let y'all finish, but Lauren and Cameron had one of the greatest reality TV love stories of all time.

If you haven't had a chance to watch the viral series by now, you still have time to binge all ten episodes before the reunion episode premieres tomorrow (March 5). From the couple's relatable AF rifts and learning to adjust to each other's quirks, xoNecole has all the tea on who's still together a year and a half later and how they make their love work.

The bottom line was, if you don't make the time to go through the five stages of grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance — even when it comes to the ending of a romantic relationship, you could 1) mistake a lack of thorough and proper grieving for still loving someone and/or 2) prolong the process of healing, so that you can actually move forward.

We all know that advocacy for inclusion and equality should be year-round, since we all have to be our fullest selves all day every day. Identity is a key element of doing that, and for LGBTQ+ professionals, this can include the question of coming out at work. Some may wonder whether their personal business is, well, anybody's business at work, while others might want to feel safe in the office being out, loud, and proud. Either way, coming out in the workplace is indeed an issue that not only must be addressed, but addressed appropriately.

Love is beautiful and social media is a wonderful way to showcase and spread it. However, many times it's the content with a bit of controversy or drama tied to it that gets all the double taps.

For a long time, I think I sought out excitement in my relationships and that can lead to a lot of unhappiness or unhealthy situations.
