Family Building 101: Watch Who You Get Relationship Advice From; Everyone’s Not Qualified

Sometimes a relationship can feel like a roller coaster ride that’s never going to end. The ups and the downs, The highs, and the lows. Even if you’re in a relationship with the person you feel you’re going to devote the rest of your life too, a breakdown in communication or a misunderstanding is bound to happen. 

For most of us, when times get rough, it helps to have someone you can talk to about your relationship problems. However, this can be a very slippery slope. Someone being in a relationship themselves doesn’t mean they’re qualified to provide you with advice about your situation. 

Every relationship is unique and what works for one person, may not work for the next. You must be cautious when getting relationship advice from family and friends. Their love and loyalty to you can make it difficult for them to express an unbiased opinion. Especially since there only hearing your side of the story. 

From my experience, speaking to your parents or other older individuals may be the best route to take. Speaking to someone that possesses knowledge combined with years of related experience is a good idea. However, at the end of the day, all advice should be taken with a grain of salt because only you and your partner know what’s really going on.
