Falling in love can bring out different traits that you never knew you had.
Whether you're in a relationship right now or are happily single, you probably know what it's like to feel romantic love and loss. Even though we've all heard the adage "Love conquers all", it's hard not to believe that it's true when we see how powerful it can be in our own lives. If you've ever been in love before, you know that there's no greater feeling in the world than being with someone who just gets you and respects you. That's what makes finding a partner who you can be yourself with so special. Love can also change you for the better.
When YourTango's Founder/CEO Andrea Miller, Anthropologist and Human Behavior Researcher Helen Fisher, Licensed Clinical Social Worker Carole Spivack, Psychologist Barbara Holstein and Founder of DateLikeaGrownup.com Bobbi Palmer talk about the science behind why we fall in love (and why it's SO important), we couldn't help but agree with a lot of the diverse points made.
1. Sometimes, we're so comfortable in our relationships that we tend to let out some behaviors that we've surpressed such as losing our temper or bottling up our emotions.
2. We may start fights as a way to get our partner's attention.
3. Even though it can be scary, we have to be able to push ourselves to try new things.
This may sound crazy but falling in love can bring out different things that you never knew about yourself. Yes, it can be hard to give yourself to your relationship but it's the only way that you'll grow.
