Compromises In Love

Love Relationships Are Well Worth The Sacrifice And Agony

Hands In Love

Love is a word that is often used loosely when describing a certain relationship. After all, everyone claims to have been in love, is currently in love or is looking for love. If anyone ever tries to tell you that love is without agony, pain or sacrifice they are outright lying to you. Couples who stay together for decades know something that many younger couples don’t – the true meaning of compromise and sacrifice.

Are love relationships really worth the effort? In reality, that’s a tough question to answer because it really depends on the couple. Couples who do nothing but fight, don’t have respect for each other and keep a so-called open relationship are the couples who aren’t in it for the long haul. Meanwhile, it’s true that opposites attract but there needs to be some common ground in the relationship as well.

Here are some thoughts on why love relationships are worth the agony:

You don’t have to spend your life alone when you have someone to help you through the tough times. It’s well worth mentioning, however, that you need a person who you can count on, no matter what. It’s not enough to be ‘in love’! You need to be supportive, caring and loving towards one another.

Being in a loving relationship is good for your mental health. People aren’t meant to live alone, and the longer you spend by yourself, the more prone you are to becoming a social outcast. That’s not healthy! The fact is, even people who claim to lead reclusive lives, depend on relationships to help them keep their mental health in check.

You’re a much better person when you’re in a love-filled relationship. You see the world as a nicer place. The fact is, you can live under the worst of circumstances, but having someone to love you can give you a more positive outlook on life.

Though relationships can be agonising, they also teach you a thing or two about being alive. Nothing in life is handed to you freely and if you claim that it is, obviously that’s not the norm. Two people who stay together for a lifetime are people who have learned how to love, compromise, cry together and create together.
