Let’s be frank – we’re all waiting for love to walk into our lives and expect a perfect relationship which will work out just like we dreamed of. However, falling in love is not such a fairy tale. The anticipation may not be the hardest part – it’s the expectations that destroy everything. We’re always daydreaming of the perfect relationship, not even for a moment thinking about the challenges it brings with it.
Although most people are hopeless romantics, many are quite aware of the challenges and difficulties love brings. Chasing love can be exhausting, but keeping the relationship going is an even bigger challenge. A person’s feelings can change in a second and emotions can have a devastating effect on a relationship. Relationships can break apart after a simple misunderstanding, and just because you love your partner doesn’t automatically mean that you have a future together. Unfortunately, love in theory and reality are two completely different things.
There’s really no way you could prepare yourself for what love has in store for you. You could be in for the ride of your life or the worst heartbreak you can imagine. You have to roll with the punches, adapt and make compromises even if you’re not fond of them. If you don’t, your relationship will break apart soon, leaving you embarrassed, ashamed and ultimately broken. Sometimes, the pain can be so great that people can even become depressed.
Many girls that have gone through a hard breakup implode on themselves soon after. They let their fears take over and become the person they never hoped they can be. Letting emotions go is another problem – they can make you blow things off proportion and freak out, deconstructing your entire persona. Life after a dreamy relationship can be really hard.
Even if you’re not a hopeless romantic and know that love without obstacles is simply not possible, you just can’t prepare yourself emotionally and mentally about what’s waiting around the corner. If only we could take a look into the future, right? We’re only human, however, so there’s no way of knowing how a relationship will turn out.
Don’t fool yourself – there’s no person on Earth who’s 100% prepared for love before diving in a relationship. Love is a challenging experience – if you don’t make sacrifices and adjust, your relationship is doomed to fail. Don’t wait until you’re ready for love – just take a dive in it and learn your steps as you go.
Love is a leap of faith that’s completely worth taking. You just need to have faith in yourself that you can overcome any challenge coming your way. It’s like life really – we’re not really ready for the challenges ahead of us tomorrow, yet we still roll with the punches, right? Have faith in yourself, your partner and love itself, and you’re going to discover a beautiful world worth fighting for.
