5 Myths About Relationships You Really Shouldn’t Believe!
No one hands us a manual on how to act or what to do when we’re in love. There sure have been several myths floating about which are so terribly wrong, that would lead you straight down the path of your break up. Unless you want to put an end to your lovely relationship believing stupid assumptions, here listed are a few myths about relationships.
Lie #1 You are going to have a fairy-tale, “happily-ever-after” experience once you get married.
All of us have heard people getting married for strange and stupid reasons. Expectations and assumptions around marriage is downright dumb. Honestly, when you marry someone who you know pretty well, your relationship with them will be a lot like it was before you walked down the aisle.
Lie #2 People in good relationships don’t fight.
The two of you may be twinning all the time and completing each other’s sentences, it’s unlikely that you’ll agree on everything. There will be conflicts and disagreements. What we need to work on is how to solve conflicts. There isn’t a need to create a conflict just because you are disagreeing.
Lie #3 Things get easy if you are in a good relationship.
Tons of people think that if another person is really, really right for them, they will sail smoothly through life together. Not so. The fairy-tale stories and movies sure show you couples living happily ever after. No one tells you what lies after that. You need to find it yourself and learn how to cope up with arguments.
Lie #4 Things eventually improve. It’s always about working hard.
Think of your relationship as a thread. Everything’s cool as far as it doesn’t break. But when it does, you can only tie a knot. It can never as smooth ever again. People buy into the idea that all they have to do is try harder or work more at it, and big problems would just shoo away. Sadly and unfortunately it might not be true.
Lie #5. People stay no matter what as long as they truly love you.
People are the most difficult to the ones that they love the most. Not everything is fair in love. There is a certain limit to how bad you treat you partner. Thinking the other person loves you, they will tolerate your shoddy behavior or your sudden lack of consideration for their needs. You don’t want to drive your brand new Maserati down a dead end street.
