Continued from: 4 Completely Unrealistic Expectations in a Relationship That Ruin Love

mythofhappyDo you believe that relationships are supposed to make you happy?

I used to believe that my relationship was supposed to be my unending source of happiness.

As if my life was supposed to fall into place like the pieces of a puzzle. I carried this unrealistic expectation to many of my relationships.

I used to think that something was inherently “wrong” with me or the relationship when I didn’t feel high on love.
