Couples who view their relationships as “perfect” (“We are soul mates” or “We we’re made for each other”) are more prone to relationship problems than those who view their relationship as a “journey” (“We grow together” or “Look how far we’ve come”). This makes sense. Every relationship is going to have problems that have to be worked though. Every relationship. But if you think you both are absolutely perfect for each other, then it’s going to be harder to accept and then deal with the highs and lows of every relationship.
A more realistic mindset helps you during the inevitable road bumps on the journey of life.
