You’ve probably figured it out by now, but I’m going to say it again anyways: Relationships take work. It would be nice if it was all hugs, kisses, and sweet nothings all of the time, but that isn’t reality. That isn’t even most romantic comedies. Relationships are about compromise, making the effort, and investment. This also means that, as much as you might try, there are some things about them that you can never control. Most people find this hard to accept, which is why a lot of relationships fail.
You probably try really, really hard to make your relationship the best it can be, right? (Otherwise, why would you even bother to be in it in the first place?) Props to you. But even if you try to do everything you possibly can to make a good relationship for you and bae, there are some things you won’t be able to change.
I wish I could be the one to tell you that there was some way around this, but there isn’t. What I’m here to do is to tell you about the things you cannot control so you can stop stressing about trying to change them. They are what they are, so it is up to you to decide if you are okay with them being what they are or if you’re done with them. These are eight things you will never be able to control in any relationship.
What have you wished that you could control about your relationship? Let us know in the comments!
