Below are indications that you have gotten lost in your relationship and what you have to do:
- You have changed your opinion for the sake of peace
It’s totally fine for your partner to say something that changes your mind. But if you find it hard to say something in front of your partner, you are likely to be sacrificing who you are.
- You value their interests more than yours
It’s okay to engage in each other’s activities when you love each other. But, know whether you are taking up their hobbies to impress them or to understand them. The truth is you are not happy with your interests because you feel like they are not attractive to your partner.
For dating women, they try to look cool. Engaging in sports which are guy things while they never ask their men to learn about makeup and fashion.
- You get bothered with their problems
It’s okay to be empathetic when your partner is not okay. But, there is a difference between feeling bad for them and just feeling bad. It’s okay not to pick up your partner’s difficulty. It’s okay to support them when they are down, but to bother too much about their problem is not a way of standing with your partner. You will just be adding stress to what’s already happening.
- You let go of opportunities for them
Your relationship is likely to be causing you things that aren’t important to you if you keep losing opportunities just to be with your partner. You need to ask yourself if your partner wasn’t in your life, would you still be doing what you are doing? If you have discovered that you can let go of a meeting with friends just to be with your companion, you need to reflect a lot on what makes you you. You might have to put down things that are important to you or things that make you different from your partner. However, do not worry, I am a living proof that you can lose yourself in a relationship and discover yourself again.
