Relationship advice is a dime a dozen, but that does not mean that all relationship advice is necessarily good or valuable. In fact, a lot of the relationship advice you might hear could be more damaging than good, and here’s why:
- People who try to give you relationship advice may often pull that advice from their own experiences, even if those experiences have absolutely nothing to do with you or with the specific problem that you happen to be having with a relationship, right here, right now.
- People who are trying to help you with a relationship may try to help you based off of how they think they would handle that situation. But they are not you, and you trying to take their advice and handle the situation as they would is actually unnatural and uncharacteristic of you.
- People who are trying to help you with a relationship problem may give you advice on how to handle your relationship based off of how they think you should handle it as a result of what they think would be best for you! They might give you advice that is totally non-conducive to your better future because they think they know what is best for you.
In the above three scenarios, the sort of laughable thing of all of this is that in all of the above situations the person who is trying to help you really is trying to help, and is not by any means trying to harm or hinder you. That is where things get really tricky. They are trying to help, but their help might end up turning to hurt in the long run.
This is why the best relationship advice for a long-term relationship is always simple.
A relationship needs to be an ongoing thing for it to be successful. When you run into stumbling blocks within the relationship, you will want to be able to find your way out of them effectively, and in such a way that you can move forward successfully and away from those stumbling blocks. You will want the relationship to be able to grow and flourish and continue to be a long-term commitment, and this will best happen if you get the right advice.
This is why the best relationship advice is always simple. Always. As a famous entrepreneur and Sales Guru Grant Cardone once said in regards to solutions to problems:
- “If it isn’t simple, if it isn’t uncomplicated, and if it can’t be explained in thirty seconds or less, then it’s not really a solution to the problem.”
The same applies for long-term relationship advice. When seeking out relationship advice, you can to a degree judge if you are getting good advice or not based off of the complexity or simplicity of the advice you are getting. Very lengthy, very complex, very drawn out advice is often a sure indicator that whoever is giving you the advice doesn’t really know what they are talking about, or at the very least doesn’t really know what kind of advice to give you that will be truly valuable and workable for you.
