If there is one thing a lot of people like to think they are, it is a relationship expert! How many times have one of your friends or family members tried to give you their “expert” opinion on your relationship? It happens way too many times to count! All relationships are different at the end of the day. But one thing that you should never do in any relationship is follow poor advice. With that in mind, read on to discover some of the worst pieces of relationship advice, which you should always ignore…
Never go to bed on an argument
So, this piece of advice works in some cases, but not all of them! Going to bed on an argument can be healthy if it gives you time to cool off and calm down. You can then start fresh in the morning.
You need to share all of your passwords, all your partner to check your phone, and so on…
What’s the problem if you’ve got nothing to hide, right? Well, this creates a culture of checking up on each other all of the time, rather than having a relationship built on trust. Of course, if your partner hides his or her phone all of the time, sneaks off for certain phone calls, and so on, you may be suspicious. However, it could be that they’re ordering you a surprise gift, so it’s best not to make assumptions or to go snooping!
It’s better to give in than to argue
We’re not suggesting that you and your partner engage in screaming matches on a daily basis. However, giving in is not always the best way to go. It sets a trend. Plus, if someone is genuinely wrong, does it really help to let them believe that they were right? Finding a way to argue in a manner that is more of a healthy discussion, rather than an insult-filled, aggressive argument, is the key here!
If you need to see a therapist, your relationship is doomed
A lot of people think that if you need to see a therapist, you may as well break-up because your relationship is “that bad.” While have you ever heard the saying that nothing worth getting comes easy? Relationships take work, and there are so many reasons why you may need to see a therapist, from sex therapy to relationship paranoia problems. Moreover, there are lots of couples who are perfectly happy and content, yet they see a therapist to strengthen their relationship and continue to understand one and other.
All things considered, there is a lot of bad relationship advice floating around these days. However, it is important to remember that it is your relationship, so don’t cave in to the opinions of other people.
