The mentality of a person in love and someone not in love differs; love has a way of unconsciously making one act differently than the person would normally.
When in love and in a relationship you kinda have this extra responsibility and that weight of being responsible to someone has an effect on your mentality.
Being in a relationship doesn’t mean you are in love, you can be in a relationship and still be indifferent to so many things but if you are in love, the Romeo and Juliet kind of bond then your mentality would change a whole lot.
Love can change your mentality in several ways and I have six of them. Check them out below
1. NOT MINDING WHAT PEOPLE SAY
People would always talk, there would always be gossips and rumours, there would always be side talks but being in love just has a way of making one have a deaf ear to most of those rumours out there. If you have ever had a partner that you really did love then you would agree with me that being in love has a way of switching your mentality to not minding the side talks and gossips that would definitely filter around.
2. BEING IN LOVE WOULD MAKE ONE DEVOID OF SELFISHNESS
Naturally humans are inclined to have this ‘self-first’ attitude and this eventually leads to selfishness. But love somehow has a way of tweaking the mentality of even the most selfish of persons that selfishness can be curbed out a little just to show appreciation to the person you love. Love is never selfish, when you are in love, you tend to think about the person you love and place them higher above almost every other person.
3. LOVE SOFTENS ONE’S EMOTIONS
Even a hardened criminal would be softened if gripped by the gentle power of love. Love brings a whole new emotion; care, togetherness, and feelings it brings can soften one’s guard to a particular person.
4. LOVE CAN MAKE YOU FAITHFUL
This isn’t always the case but love can make even a player stay true to just one lady. When in love, the power and emotions it brings can make one resist the temptation to cheat on his/her partner.
5. LOVE CAN MAKE YOU BLIND TO SOMEONE’S FAULT
The saying “love is blind” can hold sway here. When in love, one seems to have a blind eye to a partner’s fault; love can make everyone but you see the fault in someone. Love is magical and probably the greatest magician of all times because it can make a demon look like an angel in the eyes of someone in love.
If you think you can’t sacrifice for a cause then you haven’t been in love. People really have done crazy things for love but to them it was just about making sacrifices for someone they really did care about and such feeling is one no one else would understand but the person in that shoe. Love can make one have that mentality of making sacrifices that would help their loved one.
Love changes mentality; one sure thing about being in love is that the way you think normally would differ from when you are in love and even you wouldn’t know that.
