10 Reasons Why Love Doesn’t Hurt
After being in a negative, abusive or even simply the ‘wrong’ relationship, it can be tough to have a positive outlook on any and all types of love. Sometimes learning to trust within any relationship (whether romantic or a friendship) can be very difficult. There are many healthy aspects to close relationships. Just know; love doesn’t always have to hurt. It can bring both parties joy if there is a healthy amount of give and take and true respect for one another.
- While opening up yourself to anyone can be pretty scary, when doing so with the right person or people, the benefits outweigh the risks.
- Having someone you love to go to for personal advice is one of the best feelings in the world.
- You feel more in touch with your values and the future with the proper support system.
- Studies show, healthy relationships mean tougher immune systems, and we definitely cannot complain about being sick less often!
- Symptoms of mental illnesses such as anxiety or depression can be greatly reduced by having a great support system and knowing one is loved.
- Being in love helps us in social settings, as well; and social interaction is a great way to de-stress and focus on the big picture (through: laughing, physical activities, getting and getting advice, talking about the future etc).
- When someone loves you, they understand you better than others ever will and that is a fantastic feeling to allow yourself to experience.
- You are not your past and when you stop punishing yourself by putting up with things you do not deserve, you allow true love into your life.
- We all seek acceptance, and when it comes to unconditional love, there is nothing you can do to get the other person to take away their love (they may not agree with everything you do, but they are going to support you and be there for you through thick and thin).
- When looking for love in the right places (while also maintaining your personal values and goals), you are allowing others along for the ride and that’s a very special thing to enjoy with others.
