7 Things Everyone Gets Wrong About What It REALLY Means To Be In LOVE
When it comes to love, most people have the true definition of love so wrong.
Think about the lyrics to some of songs you’ve heard about love.
They talk about how hard they want to fall, or how loving can hurt. There are even lyrics about not being able to live alone with just themselves because their world revolves around their lover.
Movies and television shows portray the fairy tale ending of “happily ever after”. But that’s not what love is, either.
Here’s what love is and is not:
1. Love is not lust-filled or extreme.
Chemistry is important, but it shouldn’t feel like you lose yourself when you’re together.
Nor should you feel like something is missing or that you can’t live without them when you’re apart. That’s called co-dependency.
When you are with your soulmate, love is uplifting and inspiring. It causes us to grow beyond our perceived limited possibilities.
Being in a soulmate relationship should be the icing on the cake, not the cake itself.
2. Love is not suffering or pain.
Love DOES NOT HURT!
It is easy and joyous. Your soulmate should contribute to your life, not constrict it.
And if you are feeling triggered by your partner, that’s what I call “The Mirroring Effect”. They are reflecting back to you things that you probably don’t like about yourself.
