Why We Should Aspire to A Love Like Jack & Rebecca Pearson.

Unless you've been living under a rock you've probably heard of the best TV relationship since... well ever. Jack and Rebecca Pearson. These two are everything that you could ever hope or dream for in a significant other. 

They're literally perfect. Never has a TV show so easily shown us what a truly strong and beautiful relationship looks like. Their love is something that decades, deaths, triplets, alcohol and even a Steelers loss couldn't dim. I don't think I'll ever be able to look at a crescent moon the same again, tbh. 

There's something about a love like this that makes you want to have it. You want that. You want your hot husband to want you like Jack does even when Rebecca is 9 months pregnant with triplets. You want them to kiss you just because like Rebecca kisses Jack. You want the dancing and adventures, the family catch phrases the little moments, the family, you just want that whatever it is. Who doesn't?

​There's been a lot of "where's my Jack Pearson?" circling social media lately and that got me thinking? Are these standards impossible? Is life ever really like This Is Us?

You're damn right it can. Something people don't think about when they say that are the hard times Jack and Rebecca went through. What about when Jack was staying drunk everyday? Going to the bar every night after work? Or when Rebecca left to tour because she felt like she didn't have her own identity and then that creep kissed her? Jack and Rebecca were that way because they put the work in. They loved who they were with regardless of the flaws. They didn't run away when things got dirty or when they got in a fight. They held onto it. No matter how much it annoyed Kate when they made out in the kitchen. Don't y'all remember Jack's speech when Kate wanted to kick him out?

That's something we all can have. We can always love who we're with a little more compassionately. We could always practice forgiveness and realize that the person that you're looking at is human and will make mistakes and you have to decide if you're willing to love them through it.

As far as the passion of Jack and Rebecca... their love is like that because they're best friends not just lovers. You need to fall in love with your best friend. The passion comes from there. It's hard to not want to kiss and touch someone who has so much of your heart and soul. It helps that they're beautiful people (like unfairly beautiful) but I don't know a lot of people who don't think the person they're with is beautiful. Personally I think my fiance is the most beautiful man I've ever laid eyes on. It's not just because he is but it's because I've given him so much of my life and soul and he's done the same. He's truly my best friend and I couldn't imagine life without him. We have to stop looking for our Jack or our Rebecca and start making our own relationships worthy of telling with relationships like this as examples. If you have a relationship like this then you truly are one of the lucky ones. But why don't you tell us on our Instagram page by tagging us in a post about what makes your love like of the Pearson's with #HCThisIsUs
