What is the biggest mistake you make in almost all of your romantic relationships, possibly without even being aware of it? What is the one thing you should stop doing immediately if you want to have a healthier love life? Well, it all depends on the zodiac sign you belong to.
Falling for the wrong people
When it comes to your love life, your biggest mistake is that you don’t follow your gut when it comes to letting new people in. Once you like someone, you go all the way in, without thinking about their flaws or about the possible negative consequences of your relationship.
Consequently, you end up being hurt because you keep falling for toxic people who do you harm. In order for this to stop happening, you need to be a little more careful about the one you give your heart to.
Settling for less than you deserve
If you belong to this zodiac, you have a lot of trouble seeing your own worth. Even though this is something you wouldn’t admit to anyone, deep down, you don’t see your true value and you don’t think of yourself as enough.
Therefore, you usually settle for less than you deserve. You have a habit of accepting your partner’s lousy treatment simply because you don’t know that you are entitled to much more. Don’t be scared of looking for a person who will treat you with love and care and don’t lose faith that someone like this is out there.
Getting bored too easily
Let’s face it—we all enjoy the honeymoon phase of a new relationship. It is the period of butterflies and passion and a time when everything seems way better than it truly is.
Nevertheless, what you can’t seem to grasp is that this phase can’t last forever. If you want to have a happier love life, you need to stop getting bored so easily and walking away from a relationship as soon as it stops giving you the excitement you need.
Giving too much of yourself
If you belong to this sign, you have an enormous capacity to feel and the depth of your love and compassion for others is amazing. But that doesn’t mean that every relationship in your life deserves your maximum effort.
The one thing you need to stop doing is being the only one trying and the only one fighting, while the other person couldn’t care less about the outcome of your relationship. Be smart enough and stop giving too much of yourself without receiving anything in return.
Being afraid of love
Contrary to Cancer, you have a habit of being too guarded with the people in your life and especially when it comes to your romantic partner. You have such a huge ego that you can’t stand having someone break your heart.
However, being afraid of love won’t get you anywhere because some people are worth the chance and the risk. Don’t get me wrong—I can’t promise you that you’ll never be hurt but that is all a part of life.
Trying to change your partner
If you belong to this sign, one of the biggest mistakes you make in love is falling for someone’s potential. When you meet a new partner, you think of them as a project that needs to be improved and who is better for the job than you?
It is perfectly normal if there are some things you don’t like about your loved one but that doesn’t mean that you have the right to change them. If you can’t accept someone for who they are, walk away in time and save both of you a lot of misery.
Expecting too much
Having high standards and strong deal-breakers are a part of who you are and this is a great thing because it means you’ll never settle for less. But the problem starts when you become a little too picky and when you start expecting perfection.
Remember that you are not flawless either and that you’ll probably never find a person who matches all of your criteria. Instead of backing out from a relationship at the first glance of disagreement, just for once, try to compromise. Try accepting your partner’s imperfections and see where it takes you.
Thinking that every relationship is the one
Not all relationships and not all people are meant to be and meant to last a lifetime. Some are there to teach us a lesson and that is more than OK.
That is also something you need to understand. You need to stop idealizing all of your relationships right from the start and hope for them to last forever, before you even get to know the other person properly. Besides making you look desperate, it also makes all of your break-ups much more devastating than they should be.
Carrying emotional baggage
If you belong to this sign, the one thing you should stop doing in relationships is holding on to the past. Your emotional baggage is nothing but a big burden for you and it overwhelms you more than you may think.
So please, accept that you can’t change whatever happened in the past and stop thinking of all the should haves and could haves. Instead, learn to let go and set yourself free.
Putting all the focus on your partner
Every time you fall in love, you cease to exist as an individual because you put all of your focus and attention on your romantic partner. I know that you are head over heels for them and that you want to spend all of your spare time with this person but please, try not to lose yourself in the process.
Always remember to love yourself more than you love everyone else. Don’t worry—there is nothing selfish in prioritizing yourself—it will just make your partner respect you more.
Hiding your true emotions
I am not sure whether you are scared of admitting your feelings to yourself or to the other person but the truth is that you have a habit of hiding your true emotions when in a relationship. You hold too much of yourself back and it makes your partner feel unloved and unwanted, even though you are anything but indifferent.
It doesn’t mean that you have to wear your heart on your sleeve at all times but if you want a healthy relationship, you need to learn to relax and start expressing yourself better. Having a partner who feels emotionally neglected won’t get you anywhere.
Trying to save your partner
Your love can’t change someone unless they decide to do it themselves! You can’t save the ones who don’t want to be saved! The sooner you accept this and stop giving your energy away by trying to fix those who are beyond repair, the better.
