Relationships are all about coming out of your insecurities and turning your flaws into strengths, together. This article is going to focus on things that happy couples don't think about and don't keep these perspectives of each other. For a relationship to work and be strong, you need to understand that relationships (especially pure relationships) are NOT easy in any way, good relationships have a lot of challenges and never come easy. If you feel like your relationship is fading or is going through an uncontrollable rough patch, you need to check these out. Let's begin.
10. They Should Fix All Of MY Problems
Being in a relationship does not mean it's the end of all of your troubles, it's actually another challenge for you to surpass. I've said this in most of my articles, you just can not be in love with someone or care for someone unless you truly love yourself and care for yourself first. A relationship isn't only about "you" or "your problems". It's about a mutual life and mutual problems which should be fixed together rather than one person imposing them on the other. So no, being in love with someone in no way means that your problems will be solved, you need to have enough faith in yourself that you can fix them yourself first before you ask them for help. A confident personality leads to amazing things and self confidence is slowly becoming more and more rare each day. Don't let yourself be one of those people, you're stronger and better than them.
9. They're All Mine
If you think that being in a relationship means you two should be the center of each other's universe, you're wrong. Yes, being in a relationship puts you in a very important place in someone else's life but it in no way means you can take control of their lives. A happy and strong relationship is all about loving each other's past, enjoying each other's present and looking forward to each other's future. You can not appear too clingy or too possessive with your significant other or you'll just seem weak. Nobody likes to be micromanaged, we all need our own little personal space every now and then and we shouldn't take it to heart when our partners need their own little space too.
8. It's Going To Be Very Easy
I mentioned this in the beginning of this article, the strongest of relationships are often the hardest. If you think your relationship is going to be or should be a walk in the park, you need to change your perception. Nothing, NOTHING in life comes easy. Nothing worth having, that is. If you start facing difficult situations in your relationship, face them head on and conquer them with a smile on your face. Then and only then can you be completely content with yourself and your partner. No good love story is without its fair share of heroic moments or traumatic situations that are taken over. Have faith in your partner and trust that you'll get through it, that this too shall pass and never let go of their hand. - Continue reading on the next page
