Each and every one of us is a combination of different traits that eventually make us unique human beings in this ocean of personalities. The truth is, we all have a different approach to life, we all have our own preferences, we all have different ideas of what a relationship should look like, we all have certain expectations of life. We all have our own opinions, beliefs, needs.
Bottom line, if you have a certain opinion about something, it doesn’t mean that everyone has to share the same one.
So, no matter how close you are with your friends and no matter how supportive your family is, you shouldn’t always follow their advice. Sometimes even the most sincere, wise words can bring you misfortune. Because those words are simply their own opinion.
Here are 6 worst pieces of relationship advice you should never ever follow:
1. “FIND SOMEONE BETTER”
This is the most inconsiderate and rude comment a person can give you. As I said, all of us have different preferences in life, so no one on this planet could actually know what’s best for you.
People will always make snide comments. Sometimes it will because they’re jealous, other times it will because they don’t have anything smart to say. If you want your relationship to thrive and be healthy, focus on your partner, not people’s comments about them.
2. “DON’T LET THEM ORDER YOU AROUND – SHOW THEM WHO IS IN CHARGE”
Whoever told you this, it is evident that they have some unsorted issues with their level of self-confidence. No, you certainly shouldn’t show your partner that you are in charge. Just like you shouldn’t let your partner control you. Respect and mutual understanding are crucial if you want your love to last.
3. “ASK THEM TO BE MORE ROMANTIC”
Every person has their own ways of expressing love. And every relationship has different phases of development. Don’t listen to anyone who tells you that you should demand that your partner becomes more romantic. That is something only you and your lover should discuss.
4. “IT’S BETTER TO STAY QUIET THAN TO MAKE EVERYTHING WORSE”
This right here is the worst piece of advice you’ll ever get from people. I am not saying that you should win every argument and fight with your partner every time you disagree. Far from that.
You simply shouldn’t play the victim card. You shouldn’t keep quiet. You shouldn’t be submissive. You have a voice. Speak up!
5. “LOG INTO THEIR FACEBOOK ACCOUNT AND SEARCH THER MESSAGES. YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO DO THAT”
An absolute no-no! Just because you’ve spent your whole life together and shared everything with each other, does not give you the right to snoop through their personal stuff. Do not log into their account. Do not read their messages. I repeat. Don’t do it!
6. “REMIND THEM THAT THEY DON’T EARN ENOUGH”
This is a great way to turn a little misunderstanding into a big conflict between you and your partner.
Why would you even listen to someone who advises you to discourage and shame your partner?
Anything you have to say to them, say it. But, don’t let others convince you into following their malicious and disrespectful “advice”.
