In a relationship, we want to do whats best for our significant other and be the best version of ourselves when we are with them. Trying to show them all the love you have to give and bend over backwards for them as much as emotionally and physically possible. As wonderful as this may be, it is important to realize that you have emotions and needs. When we do for others, sometimes we put ourselves last to try to appease our significant others.
Love can be the greatest life experience, but it can also be a distraction from how someone is treating you. This means, you are willing to “put up” with more BS from someone you love than from someone you are not so emotionally involved with. It can be quite difficult to initially notice when you’re in a controlling or emotionally abusive relationship. They may seem-to just be picky, have high expectations, maybe have a rough job, maybe “it’s just the way they talk” or whatever other excuse that we use to buffer the inappropriate behavior of our lover.
As time goes on you may not even realize that you do not do the things you enjoy anymore, that you are missing a lot of your own individual freedoms, and that you are border-lining being subservient to he other. It is not your job to be the source of your significant other’s happiness, nor is it your job to be the emotional or physical punching bag. At this point it is best to label this partnership dead.
Your partner does not decide your worth, because you are immeasurably valuable and do not allow anyone to take that away from you.
When someone doesn’t realize this remember the label:Partnership Dead.
