The Problem With Seeing The World Through Rose-Colored Glasses

Seeing the world through rose-colored glasses is synonymous with looking at the world through a ‘love conquers all’ attitude. Love has this blinding effect on everyone as it unconsciously creates barriers between how we perceive others and who the other person really is. And the heartbreaking fact is, when we finally see our relationships for what they are, it can be disappointing and devastating to find out the truth.

Although love yields satisfactory and positive emotions associated with human connection, we need to be more wary of how we push others to achieve the unattainable in our minds, as well as how our perspective can limit the experiences we are able to experience. Otherwise, we are destined to live in a figment of our imaginations which is just an impractical reality invented by one’s expectations and desires.
