Relationships have its ups and downs, but one good thing about anything that has its ups and downs is that you come off it a better and stronger person; it can be compared to a staircase; climbing stairs of a giant building might be complicated and difficult and even tiring but it’s one of the best forms of exercises for the legs.
When you enter a relationship, there are certain truths about relationships that you should be prepared for, and that’s what this article is all about.
9 bitter truths about relationships.
1. NOT EVERY RELATIONSHIP WOULD LEAD TO MARRIAGE
You can’t marry everybody you date and the possibility of marrying the first person that you date is always very slim and this is one bitter truth about relationships. Many enter some relationships with the hope that it might lead to marriage but it doesn’t always work out that way. Some relationships are meant to shape you for the real deal and not every person you meet is the real deal.
2. NOT EVERYONE WHO SAYS I LOVE YOU MEANS IT
‘I love you’ are the three most bastardized words you might ever hear; not everyone would love you; some people might say they love you but they don’t and just after a few days or weeks of dating they get bored of the whole thing and would want to quit. Sometimes lust could be judged to be love and you should be ready for that just in case it happens.
3. NOT ALL RELATIONSHIPS WOULD HAVE A HAPPY ENDING
Life is no Cinderella story, sometimes it could end sadly like Titanic and sometimes it wouldn’t; relationships are unpredictable and the fact that it started out well doesn’t mean it would always end well; sometimes the gallops along the way could be unbearable.
4. SOME PEOPLE WOULD COME INTO YOUR LIFE FOR WHAT THEY CAN GET
Not everyone enters a relationship because they are in love, some would enter for what they can get from you; some people are naturally jerks. Some enter relationships for sex, money and a whole lot of other factors that might not include love.
5. YOU CAN’T BE PERFECT FOR EVERYONE
You can’t be compatible with everyone; some of your relationships could be like a tug of war, some would have a lot of arguments and misunderstanding and in some you would be that perfect person. The fact that your relationship partner might actually love you or you love that person doesn’t mean you would be perfect for each other; sometimes, it wouldn’t just pan out well.
6. HEARTBREAKS ARE A LIKELY SCENARIO
The fact that all relationship you enter wouldn’t work out well means that heartbreaks isn’t all that inevitable. Humans are imperfect and we all make mistakes but sometimes those mistakes could prove costly and it might just lead to a heart breaking experience.
7. RELATIONSHIPS AREN’T ALL A BED OF ROSES
People make that mistake of entering a relationship and feel it would just work out well so easy. Relationship takes work, what you give is what you would get; if you put in little efforts you would get same. Don’t expect a relationship to work on its own; you need to mold it, you need to shape it.
8. A GOOD LOOKING PARTNER DOESN’T GUARANTEE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP
People enter relationships with someone just because of beauty and that’s a dangerous mistake. Beauty is deceptive; the love that beauty brings is fleeting, if you base your relationship only on this then you have successfully sealed a relationship that might be on the verge of ending before it starts.
9. MONEY CAN’T REALLY BUY LOVE
Money can buy a whole lot of things but true love isn’t really one of those. It can only fetch you temporary love but true love is a genuine feeling from the heart and it doesn’t need money to make it happen. Any love bought with money might fade away especially when there is no money.
These nine truths are bitter but they are true as far as relationships are concerned.
