Hello Everyone !
From last few weeks this thought has been going on my mind. Everyday I keep observing people getting obsessed with love & relationships.
So I thought why not write a blog post on this topic.
Everywhere you go, people are talking about love and relationships. Even being in toxic relationships they can’t see a way out of them.
Here is why I feel love and relationships are so overrated these days.
What Do I Mean By Love Is Overrated ?
Now, some people might be already offended with the title of this article. Especially the ones who are currently in a relationship.
I have nothing against love or relationships. But I do have a problem with the amount of unnecessary importance it has in this generation.
Talking about teenagers, everyone is talking about relationships. They look at movies, web series or read love stories and think this is the ultimate goal of their life. Because that is how much love is glorified in art.
For so many people being in a relationship is a fantasy. And to fulfill this fantasy people end up with wrong people and create their own misery.
So, what I mean by love is overrated is that people are giving it too much importance than it needs. People don’t realize that there are so many fulfilling things in life other than love or romantic relationships.
3 Reasons Why Love Is Overrated
Movies have a great impact on viewers. Whatever we watch in Movies we often tend to believe in it. Also we want things shown in it to happen with us.
We love watching Romantic movies. If you are an Indian then Congrats , you will find a love story in ever genre of movies.
What’s wrong with love stories is Love is shown as the one & only end goal. Love is glorified as the most purest & important thing in life.
So, that’s the idea of love gets imprinted on our minds without questioning whether it is true or not.
Not only movies now a days in Advertisements also you can find a love story.
For eg: By using A perfume you’ll get a girlfriend. What?
Can you see what’s happening here ? They know how to fool people by showing a little love story in their ads.
Because these big brands know almost every person has a fantasy to find a perfect partner and live happily after like some crappy Bollywood love story.
3. Social Media
You must have seen this kind of quotes on social media like Facebook ,Instagram ,etc.
Social media has made Relationship as a status symbol. If you are single then you are often understood as Unattractive ,Uninteresting & Uncool.
If you observe carefully, there are so many memes on single people and how miserable their life is. Due to this, people are brainwashed into thinking that being single is the worst thing which can happen to you.
This is why so many youngsters end up into toxic relationships.

The Truth About Love You Need To Know
1. Movies Aren’t Real
In movies ,the only goal actor has in a movie is to marry the girl. For this he does everything he can. He fights ,gets beaten by gangsters, kills people with one kick, gifts moon to his love ( Too much here).
Guys please understand this isn’t real.By watching this kind of things in movies , people imitate the actor in real life. When they get into a relationship they start doing everything they can just to make other person happy.
In this they lose their self worth ,self respect & everything they have.
2. You Don’t Need Anyone To Complete You
It Takes A Million People To Complete The World, But It only Takes One To Complete Mine.
Yes , you’ve read it before. This is the most stupid misconception we have. Nobody can make you complete but You.
You were born as an individual. You were born as a complete person. You didn’t need anyone else to complete you. So stop obsessing over thought of finding someone to complete you.
3. Your Personal Goals Are Important
People tend to lose their focus from their goals once they get into relationship. They make their relationship as one & only goal.And starts believing that only thing they need in life is Love.
No , I’m not against love. I’m against the wrong idea of love. Making sacrifices for your love is needed but while doing this never let your own life get affected.Never stop chasing your personal goals.
4. Love Won’t Solve Your Life Problems
Yes, this is the bitter truth. Love, your perfect partner isn’t a magic pill that you will swallow and everything going wrong in your life will get better.
The problems you are currently facing in your life such as Self-doubt, Anxiety, Career issues, Family issues, Health issues, etc will still be there with you. No matter how good your partner is, he or she can’t improve your life.
There are many single people out there who feels insecure ,inferior & sad just because they are single, here is what I want to tell you all.
Every single guy/girl reading this ,stop looking for love. Use this time in improving yourself. Start working on your goals. Enjoy life to the fullest & keep working on yourself.
Hopefully now you know why I feel love is overrated.
I want to make it clear that , I’m not against Love/Relationships. I’m against the wrong ideology about relationships & love.
Because there are many examples of people ruining their own life due to these misconceptions about Love.
So guys , love by keeping your eyes open.
Love as hard as can & start with “Yourself”.
