Myths About Relationships and How You Can Learn

Somewhere along the way in our struggles to be happy we cling to certain notions about relationships that have really turned out to be myths. Just as there are no perfect people there are no perfect relationships. If you would like to learn the truth about these myths and where to find the secrets of the happiest couples in the world, then this is an article you won’t want to miss.

First of all, let’s talk about the myths and the truths behind them:

  • Myth #1 – The best relationships mean being able to resolve all your differences. – Impossible! It’s estimated by relationship experts that 90% of these problems are not even solvable. You are better off just agreeing to disagree and moving on, rather than fighting about things and not getting any closure.
  • Myth #2 – The most successful couples must have common interests that bind them. – There isn’t any reason why you MUST have common interests. Don’t go along with something you don’t enjoy because you think you have to!
  • Myth #3 – Happy couples rarely have fights. Actually it’s just the opposite. The happiest couples are often the ones that can release tension in the relationship by arguing the proper way.
  • Myth #4 – The best relationship is where you can say anything you want. Not a good idea. It is essential that you pause before you say something hurtful that could damage the relationship badly.
  • Myth #5 – If you could only “fix” your partner the relationship would be better. This is crazy talk and signifies unwillingness on your part to see your own role in the relationship. Your partner isn’t responsible for your happiness! You would probably be better served trying to “fix” yourself.
