3 Relationship Myths We Believe In

Generally, Relationships are being judged by all the words lovers confess for themselves on the social media walls and all the doctored pictures we see. We go all ‘awww’ whenever we read romance books with perfect endings silently hoping our lives are that way. We know these things are far from real life so by now, we all agree things are never as simple as they seem right? Well, just to further drive home that point, I decided to touch on some myths most of us believed in or probably still believe in.

Love is perfect: Sweetie, I hate to be the bearer of this news but I need to help you out of whatever dreamland you are stuck in. Love is nothing close to perfect. There will be arguments and there will be down times. There will be times when you just want to end it all and just leave but the good news is it will not be the end of the relationship. Most times, it makes it stronger. The disagreements can only bring you closer. Despite all its imperfections, love is still a beautiful thing. There are times you hear things like if he loves you, he would go to the end of the world and back for you  ( A cynic like me is like oh ! sweetie , I hope you know you aint trying out for a role in a Disney movie because things don’t play out that way).

She/he will change after we are married:  You truthfully don’t believe this or do you? Come on sweetheart, if you can’t take it now, then don’t go into it for the long term. Chances are he wouldn’t change and this might lead you into a lifelong misery. Habits die hard. If he beats you, marrying you wouldn’t make him stop. If he is a chronic womanizer, only God and a miracle can heal him, don’t bite more than you can chew. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. You are only going to end up unhappy and dissatisfied.

Love Is Enough: Love might be the principal thing in a relationship but if you don’t consider other things such as compatibility, finances, future goals, you might find yourself stuck in a ditch. The very foundation of your love will be shaken and you might be left dejected. You need to keep your eyes opened even while in love. Love doesn’t cure laziness, you don’t want to find out about this when it is already too late to go back. Be wise.

I hope you make the most of your weekend. Have a fab one.
