    We all know what love is. Yes, we do. But do we really understand all the things about love? Maybe not. So, we are here to give you five of the most common misconceptions about love that people often fall into.

    “The person who truly loves you will never hurt you.”

    Never believe a person who promises a relationship with no pain. When you enter a relationship, you must remember that love goes hand in hand with pain. Not getting hurt is just too good to be true. Do not be afraid of getting hurt. One way or another, your partner might do something that may hurt you, intentional or not. And just because you got hurt doesn’t always mean the feelings aren’t true. When you love, pain is inevitable. So, you must weigh things out and decide who’s actually worth the pain.

    “I am not complete without you.”

    Yes, this can be flattering. However, taking it literally won’t make the relationship work in the long run. Remember, you enter a relationship when you are whole. You don’t make a person fill in your empty parts. No other person can give that to you except for yourself. Keep in mind that relationships should consist of two people whose love tanks are already full, to begin with. Otherwise, you’ll eventually end up unintentionally hurting each other.

    “We don’t have the same interests. This won’t work.”

    While it works that you and your partner have lots of similarities, it is also important that you make your relationship work despite your differences. Compatibility is not about having someone who has the same interests as you. It doesn’t work that way. Compatibility is not just about celebrating what both of you have. It’s also about filling in each other’s differences.

    “Love is blind.”

    Love is not blind; So is your heart. It perceives beyond what your eyes can see. When you choose to love someone’s imperfection, don’t just look at it. Instead, look through it. You don’t just ignore their negative traits. It does not stop there. Remember, you need to understand where they are coming from. After all, it pays to know that someone does not only acknowledge your ugly side but is also willing to help you get through all of it.

    “What you don’t know won’t hurt you.”

    As people often say, a hurtful truth is better than a comforting lie. If you do something you think might break your partner’s heart, do not hide it. If you think it won’t hurt your partner because she doesn’t know, you are wrong. It may not hurt for the time being, but eventually, it will. It will hurt even more because betrayal hurts the most when it comes from the people you love the most.

    Love is more than what you think it is. If you believe in one of these things, it’s not too late for a major realignment! Go ahead and discover the beauty of love. We’d be more than happy to see you having the love you truly deserve.
