The 3 Biggest Myths About Romantic Relationship


The 3 Biggest Myths About Romantic Relationship
These common myths may be keeping you from having the lasting, fulfilling relationship you want.

Myth #3: Romantic love will fulfill all my unmet needs and provide me with endless love and happiness. We expect so much from intimate relationships these days. Throughout much of human history, romantic relationship did not even exist. Now we place so much importance and high expectations on this type of relationship. The truth is that although we may be happy with our partner, no one is the source of happiness for us. Just as with love, happiness is an inside job. If you are not in touch with the source of joy within, you will not find that outside your self. No matter how wonderful your partner may be, there will still be a sense of something missing if we are not connected to the source within.

You may have noticed that all 3 myths are related. They all involve focusing on an outside source for love, happiness and fulfillment. The first question we need to ask ourselves is, do we want what is real and true, or do we want a fantasy?
