Myth #3: If you truly love your partner, you're always aware of his or her feelings and needs?
The Truth: Oh, really? Did you develop mind-reading powers at the same time as you were falling in love? If you think your partner will automatically know every want, desire, and feeling you have, you're basically assuming that your partner has developed them.
As children, we develop the expectation that the people in our lives will know all our needs and feelings based on the fact that our parents seem to know them. However, as adults, we need to understand that communicating those things to others is our responsibility.
It's better to gauge the quality of a relationship by how carefully your partner listens and responds to your feelings and needs when you do communicate them.
