Are you invested in someone else's relationship?

When an instagram user commented on one of Reality TV star's, Tara Pavlovic photos speculating that Pavlovic had split with fiancee Sam Cochrane, the comments section of her instagram went into pure meltdown.

Many users were concerned with one even commenting, "my life is over!".

Even thought the Bachelor In Paradise star has confirmed that the two are still very much together and urging fans "not to stress", the question must be asked. Why are we stressed? Why does the thught of one of our favourite celebrity couples splitting up affect us as if it were our own break up?

When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie announced their split in 2016 the world media was convinced #loveisdead. It was the same earlier this year when Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan announced their separation. 

Break ups are just a part of life. They often suck. like really suck. But maybe if it has nothing to do with us and it's not OUR break up, we shouldn't feel that our "life is over".
