The Real Side Of Relationships Has Been Creatively Depicted In These Illustrations

When we think about relationships, we might tend to imagine everything as picture perfect and flowing smoothly. However, in life, every relationship has their off days.

I have read a quote once, where someone said that relationships are not always 50/50. Meaning do not expect for both to be at the same mood every day. On particular days, the quote said, your partner might be feeling a 30% and that day, you should give your 70% – and vice versa. I thought this quote as a good description of compromise and commitment. A way to make things work.

Be as it may, relationships should at the very core be a safe place, a place of peace and rest and calmness. Internally, they should be soothing and exciting. Creating a connection, intimacy, a place where you find love, care, and support among all. That’s what relationships are about.

In this article, you’re about to see the real side of relationships as illustrated by the 24-year-old Tuna Dunn, an illustrator from Bangkok, Thailand.

Some things, you think, are too good to be true. Until they turn out to actually be true.
