Relationships in the world have gone through a lot of makeovers. In regular time intervals, we witness a new concept is popping up in relationships. But one thing is for sure. Relationships have always been complicated.
Even though many people have different perspectives about relationships, there are just two ways of seeing things. The first one is people go that extra mile and sacrifice things to be in a relationship. It because they consider that the relationship that they are involved is worth sacrificing things. They are even ready to lose their individuality.
The second way is that people think if they are not able to be themselves what is the point of being together. When other people call it sacrificing they call it faking. They are not ready to lose out on a few things. Hence they feel that it is better to end things rather than continuing it. Like every other entity in the world relationships also have its pros and cons.
It is always better to start things with a positive note. So let’s start with the pros.
You can spend your time in many ways, but nothing can come close to being with a loved one. Their companionship just eases you out refreshes your mind. It is a very different experience that cannot be explained with words. There is no requirement of conversations or anything for that matter. Just their presence would seal the deal.
If there is one person in this whole world who you could show the real you is your better half. You don’t need to fake, and there is no necessity of pretending. You can be clumsy, annoying and do whatever you want. It is the liberty that you have in a serious relationship. Moreover, your partner opted for the whole package which comes with all these things.
Learning to empathize and compromise
These two qualities are not required to be just a good partner in a relationship. These are required to be a good human being in society. The best part in a serious relationship is that you don’t need to put that extra effort to empathize with your partner’s feelings and to compromise. If you are fully committed, it automatically happens.
Lack of thrill
If you are single, you will always have this thrill of chasing the person you love, stocking them in social media, trying to get every piece of information about them, do things to make them notice you, woo them and so on. Everything mentioned above is eliminated when you are in a serious relationship.
Losing your self
If you are in a serious relationship, it is kind of mandatory for both to compromise on a lot of things. Some people take it in a good way. But even though it is worth it, many people are frustrated about this.
They say the human mind is like a monkey. When it comes to relationships, it is absolutely true. Even if there is a small problem, you might start to think that things would have been better if I was not committed to this relationship.
