Advice can differ. Family and friends have only good intentions and support in mind; others can spoil a relationship by giving bad advice out of jealousy. However, even the most sincere words of wisdom can sometimes have a very negative impact on a relationship.
Bright Side decided to figure out what kind of advice psychologists recommend avoiding at any cost if we want a relationship to be healthy and last longer.
1. “You should find someone better for yourself.”
If you’re only in a relationship because you want some personal profit, maybe you’re on the wrong track. Profit-seeking, according to psychologists, cannot be an adequate reason to start or end a relationship. In doing so, you can destroy a really happy marriage or start a life that doesn’t bring you any happiness at all.
2. “Show them who’s the boss. Don’t let them push you around!”
First of all, love partners have different fields of responsibility in a relationship, and it seems normal that each of them takes a leading role from time to time.
Only mutual understanding and respect of the partners can make a marriage work and make it really strong.
