Have Realistic Expectations
So many relationships fall apart when fantasy turns out to be just that. It’s important that we have realistic expectations in our relationships. Being realistic doesn’t mean that you have to resign yourself to someone who doesn’t make you happy, or to a relationship that’s boring or conflict-ridden. It simply means that you have to be OK with a partner who is human, just like you, and who, like you, is imperfect. If you can let go of unrealistic expectations and accept that things won’t always be perfect, then you can pave the way for a love that’s real, in which you and your partner recognize each other for who you really are.
