Travelling with my girlfriend has been a big mistake
This year, my girlfriend and I travelled to Bali and the Maldives. I just wanted to point out that she is very into Instagram and has around 15k followers and always post selfies and stuff.
Naturally, she made me take tons of pictures. I am totally fine with that. I support her passion and I even look up to that. However, she gets mad everytime I take “bad” pictures. For example when I accidentally took pictures with a shadow on her face or whatever. She would make a grumpy sound and tell me that I “never” take good pictures of her (I have been taking pictures of her for 5 years now).
Anyways, she would also get mad when something does not go according to our planned schedule. For example when a restaurant decides to close. She would tell me that I did not plan this properly or if my friend decides to want to meet me, I would try to fit that in our schedule and whe would get mad at that because the other stuff are pushed to a later time. It almost seems like she does not know the concept of a planning. To me I would love to follow the planning but sometimes things get in the way and we would have to adapt.
We come also come from a far country and we are a little bit jetlagged. So when we were at the hotel, I immediately crashed on the bed and woke up late for a day (At around 11am). She started calling me names like being useless and irresponsible because I woke up late and did not follow the scheduled.
What made me write this post is because today at dinner, I was feeling nauseous and had a headache for some reason. I took some pills and told my girlfriend that I think I need some rest. She started to look frustrated and annoyed. She started saying that I am weak and that there is an issue with me. She was annoyed because we planned to get pictures of her by the entrance of the hotel at night. Well, she basically forced me to still take few pictures of her.
Anyway, I do not know if this is normal behaviour when “influencers” go on vacation with their husband or boyfriend. I have spent last year working really hard and thought I deserved some relaxation time travelling. But it seems like I got another job instead in different countries being a photographer and babysitter.
