Love is quite essential for mankind and everyone needs to feel loved at one point in their lives. Some people talk passionately about love and how it can help one in other aspects of life. However, others have decided to become critics of love and often seem cynical of whether true love exists. The majority of those who believe that true love exists will often talk of how easy it is to love someone or fall in love with someone. It is, however, essential to note that the greatest feeling to befall mankind is when one knows that their feelings of love are mutually felt. While the above is true, it is important to understand that love will never be smooth and at times people in love will fight and disagree on some aspects of their lives. However, if true love exists, common ground will always be attained and the bad days forgotten. There are many misconceptions about true love and this article will reveal them while also explaining what true love entails.
First of all, true love is not supposed to be difficult or something that people work extremely hard to get. In movies, we often see the man or the lady working hard and at times compromising their stand for the sake of “true love.” However, true love is supposed to be effortless. It takes hard-work and time to build a lasting relationship, however, love is a feeling and regardless of how hard people work, they may never experience or feel it. With true love, people admire and accept their partners in spite of who they are or what they do. No one should compromise or try to change their personality for them to appear attractive.
Secondly, people often believe that true love conquers everything. Most of these misconceptions of love are often seen on movies or in literature books where lovers conquer every obstacle because of their deep love for each other. It is necessary to note that while love is essential in a relationship, it is not the main factor that holds couples together. At times, people’s personalities differ and even though they truly love each other, it becomes a problem for them to be in the same relationship. The above often happens when people try to compromise while in a relationship. Compromising is dangerous and is among the biggest killers of relationships as people try to conform to their partners needs while leaving their own unattended.
The third misconception about true love is that people will live devoid of problems or issues in a relationship. “Living happily ever after” is amongst the biggest lies that people keep embracing when it comes to true love. While the mutual feeling of love is indeed great and healthy for a relationship, it is necessary to point out that problems and disagreements will always arise. However, problems or disagreements do not mean that people have fallen out of love or they hate each other. Problems and disagreements in a relationship only mean that people have different interests or have a differing opinion. Additionally, through problems and disagreements, people get to know their partner’s preferences and stance in a number of issues which is quite healthy.
In conclusion, true love does exist. Cynics and critics will always have their opinions heard but people who have felt true love know that it is alive. The few misconceptions about true love are mostly as a result of movies and televisions shows which help to propagate the unrealistic nature of love. For the ones who have not found it, keep looking and to the ones who are already basking in it, be yourself and avoid compromising.
