Are You Losing Yourself In Your Relationship?
There is a tendency that we take on some of the characteristics of the people we love after being with them for some time and so will they. It could even go to the extent that we will have similar likes and dislikes. This could explain why some people start to love some shows that they used to snob. When you make an effort to care for what the person you love cares for, you also later find out that these things are not that bad. On the other side, our love one also does the same.
However, even if you were together for a long time, you still need to keep your own identity. Not keeping your identity could result to forgetting who you are. If it seems you are not yourself anymore, check out this page.
Check out these signs to learn more if you are losing yourself in your relationship.
You always say “we” instead of “me.” Focusing on “we” and avoiding “me” is a sign that you only see what you can do with someone instead of what you can do as a person.
There were things you cannot tolerate before the relationship that you are tolerating now. Even if we sometimes do not admit it, we do have morals. Was your moral compass stronger before you entered into this relationship? Have your moral standards gone down? Were you a health buff before but now you are looking the other way when he does unhealthy things?
More serious in a relationship is when there is abuse and it should never be taken lightly. Don’t cover up for your partner is he is abusing you.
You give more priority to his things and needs. Did you have to leave your things behind to stay in his place? No one should prevent you from holding on to something you hold dearly. Some think of this as nothing. But it really means something. If you cannot agree on what things to keep in terms of material possessions, you might not agree later on other issues.
You immediately agree. A lot of partners who cannot agree on some matters later find out one of them won over the other. Do you feel you have to agree with your partner most of the time? For all you know you are losing yourself already.
You suddenly feel you need time for yourself. There are times we all need to be alone. Do you have a craving to be alone and you feel this more often than before? Another sign of losing yourself is when all your time is spent on your partner. If your partner does not give you some space, he might be jealous or possessive. You do not have to attend all corporate functions for your partner if you are not comfortable.
If after this you realized that you are losing yourself, talk to your partner to fix issues and if it does not work, seek help. Check out more pages to get more info about this issue.
