Celebrities have their way of showing what love is in many Hollywood movies. But love isn’t exactly what they portray in movies. We can’t skip the bad parts and directly to the good features, and not all love stories end with a happy ending. However, all celebrities have their relationships, and some of them are willing to share what comprises a good relationship.
Not all relationships are rainbows and butterflies, and anyone who thinks that all relationships should be like that should set their expectations right away. Most of the celebrity relationships in this article have a lot of ups and downs, and that’s what made them last so long. The first step to having a great relationship with your partner is becoming vulnerable.
Being vulnerable is showing weakness for some people. But for Kirsten Bell and Dax Shepard.
Bell and Shepard have been in a relationship for more than eleven years now, and the key to such a long and lasting relationship is vulnerability. Knowing each other’s weaknesses and strengths can make a difference in keeping your romance alive. Knowing when you can’t figure things out and need a couple’s therapy or relationship counseling to help you out is crucial in keeping your romance alive. Kristen Bell believes this with all her heart and claims that it’s the primary reason why she and Dax have been in a relationship for so long.
It might be slow at first. It might be problematic. Kirsten claims that their first year of dating was harsh and toxic. They both shout and scream at each other during fights. The worse part of it all was that they would walk out on each other and wouldn’t dare to communicate appropriately. After that first year, they realized that they had to be more vulnerable to one another if they wanted their love to survive.
So they agreed to get some help and figure things out. Now they’re together for eleven years and still love each other every step of the way.
Don’t Expect Things Will Go Smoothly.
Now that we’re talking about difficulties in love and toxicity, one of the most well-known couples has something to say about that. Will Smith and Jada Smith have been a couple for more than twenty-three years now? That’s a lot of years being together, and it’s fifteen years more than the average length of American marriages.
The key to this is believing that things will never be simple in a relationship and go smoothly or as planned. Many people expect their relationship will be perfect with their partner because they are ideal. But there is no such thing. Entropy will happen, and both of you will be toxic to one another before you even know about it.
Will Smith believes in never giving up. Always try to figure things out together and never expect that things will go smoothly from the beginning of the relationship. Many people have to tackle personal relationships while being in a relationship, and this is why things will never go as perfectly, but that’s alright. These problems can build personality and even bring you closer than ever.
Spend Some Time Apart From Each Other
During the first few years of our romantic relationship, we might hate the idea of being apart from the person we love. But for John Legend and Chrissy Teigen believe that spending some time apart from each other is essential to every relationship.
John Legend claims that spending time with Chrissy is a priority for him. But sometimes, that isn’t entirely possible, and sometimes we have our own needs. Chrissy accepts that fact, knowing that celebrities barely have any time for themselves. They’re always out there with legions of cameras pointed in their face. Interviews can last for many days, especially when you’re promoting a movie or a new album.
These things can be tiring and can quickly want you to crawl into your personal space and spend time away from the world. John and Crissy believe that spending time away from each other can make a difference in personal rejuvenation. Respecting that idea should be a priority for many couples out there.
The reality is that you can’t be in the same room with your partner twenty-four hours a day. You’d end up hating them if you do such a thing. So consider spending some time with yourself whenever you can.
No relationship is perfect. Even celebrities have to struggle with theirs, but learning from them can mean avoiding the hurdles they have experienced along the way. So listen to their advice and apply them to your relationship as much as possible.
