The 2nd Relationship Terminator – PURSUING UNREALISTIC IDEALS.

Misinterpretation of the myths and fairy-tales ubiquitously embedded in our cultures and societies creates false beliefs and fantasies, and leads to us pursuing unrealistic ideals and expectations. Unrealistic ideals and expectations are one of the 5 mortal enemies of relationships, triggering dissatisfaction and discontent where we should be learning acceptance and appreciation. Examples of this are all the ideals and misconceptions about the concept of soul-mates. Beliefs that our soul-mate will complete us, make us happy, is predestined and always presents as a romantic partner. Beliefs that our relationship with a soul-mate will be effortless and will last for the rest of our lives.

When we measure a real relationship or romantic partner against such unrealistic ideals they simply cannot compete, because unlike those ideals, they are not exempt from the complexities of having to coexisting with us in the real world. Any time you feel overall discontent, dissatisfaction or resentment towards your partner or relationship you can be sure there is an unrealistic ideal hard at work in the back of your mind.
