What are some myths about relationships that you grew up with, if any?
I’m not sure if I would call it a myth, but as a child I sort of just assumed relationships stayed constant. I didn’t realize how many iterations relationships go through or how outside factors can really impact your relationship. I know now that relationships are constantly evolving, as are the people within the relationship.
