Relationships aren't perfect. They can be painful and aggravating. They can be problematic and detrimental to our mental health.
Of course, relationships require a great deal of time and commitment to maintain, but if you're not with the love of your life, is it even worth it?
Here are five beautifully powerful Rihanna songs that prove relationships are harder than they look.
1. "Take A Bow"
"Don't tell me you're sorry cause you're not // Baby when I know you're only sorry you got caught"
2. "Stupid In Love"
"I still love you, but I just can't do this"
"I never gave myself to another the way I gave it to you // You don't even recognize the ways you hurt me, do you? // It's gonna take a miracle to bring me back // And you're the one to blame"
4. "Te Amo"
"I understand that we all need love and I'm not afraid // I feel the love but I don't feel that way"
"Funny you're the broken one but I'm the only one who needed saving // 'Cause when you never see the light it's hard to know which one of us is caving"
