When we are experiencing issues in our relationships, we can’t help but turn to our friends, families, therapists, and sometimes even perfect strangers to help us navigate difficulties with our significant others.
A lot of times, they give us really wonderful advice that is ultimately very helpful. However, there are certain pieces of advice that you should not listen to when it comes to your relationship.
1. You’ll Find Your Perfect Match
You might find someone who treats you better than your last relationship, but it’s unrealistic to call someone your perfect match. Everyone has differences, and there will be time when you’ll have arguments or have to make compromises with your partner. It’s not always smooth sailing, it’s just how you and that person deal with it that makes a good relationship.
2. Don’t Go To Bed Angry
Sleeping on certain disagreements can actually be really helpful. Taking time to cool off after an intense argument is often better so you don’t say anything that you’ll regret. It’s okay to sleep it off, and think a fight over.
3. Time Heals All Wounds
Well, time doesn’t heal all wounds. There are actions your partner may have done that are not forgivable, or you feel it’s something you cannot just let go and let time take care of. In these cases, the issues need to be dealt with in an open, honest, and communicative way.
Online Breakup Rules
Bella Breakdown No, I am not going to teach you how to break up with someone online. I do not condone simply changing a relationship status to let someone know you’re through. We don’t advocate for horrible people here. However, I will tell you there are certain rules to follow when you’ve broken up with someone, and the majority of your relationship has been posted online. We are all guilty of it, posting pictures and writing sappy posts about how much we love someone we are in a relationship. However, some relationships end, so what is the right way to deal with your breakup when most of our lives are displayed online? 1. Take a break from social media. Go dark. You might be tempted to stalk your ex’s every move on social, and that might be too hard to handle, especially if you find out they’re already hanging...

Bella Breakdown The question whether you can you still be friends with an ex has always been a controversial one. But what about, “can you still care about your ex?” You might have found yourself in a relationship where either yours or your partner’s ex is still in the picture in an emotional way. This can be a really hard thing to deal with. If you are the one whose partner is still in contact with or somehow taking care of an ex, it can be really difficult for you to deal with. And what if it’s your ex that is still in the picture? Why is it that you don’t want to totally drop this person? Does in...
Bella Breakdown You may have found yourself in a slue of bad relationships, or just simply a state of singleness.

So what is it exactly that is keeping you from finding your true love? Well it’s probably you who is keeping yourself from finding love. According to a study, 65% of adults believe that it is themselves that are to blame for the lack of love in their lives. Now the majority of these adults...
Bella Breakdown In an ideal world we would be in one relationship that was perfect, forever, and never risk our souls and hearts being damaged by another human being. Alas, that is an ideal world and unfortunately not the world of love and heartbreak we live in. Everyone you meet comes with a little bit of baggage, or a lot of baggage unfortunately, but it is how we unpack that baggage that determines how we will act in the next relationship. So, what are the signs that you are letting your past relationships baggage affect your new relationship? 1. All of your relationships seem to be the same. You keep finding yourself attracted to the same kind of people....
Bella Breakdown Your wedding has always been dreamed up as what is supposed to be the happiest day of your life. But let’s face it, we have watched enough reality television over the years to know that weddings are extremely stressful. You might have even been in a few weddings in your day to understand the full stress the brides or grooms feel during the days leading up to, well, the big day. Now, when it comes to your own wedding day, I’m here to tell you that there are a few tricks of the trade you can use to help de-stress a potentially stressful day. 1.

Bella Breakdown So the leaves are turning, you are watching more scary movies than normal, the sweaters you have been wearing through the end of a scorching September are actually appropriate for the weather now. Everywhere you go you seem to see couples, and you can’t help but admit that you have re-downloaded all of your dating apps after having had deleted them for the fourth time. It seems as though once the smell of pumpkin spice hits the air, thus begins the ritual of cuffing season. You might notice a lot of people getting into relationships during the fall and winter months. This actually has a lot to do with basic human instinct.
