#10 You’ll do anything for love. Do you believe that you’ll do whatever it takes to make your relationship work or stay alive forever? That’s never a good approach to experience happy love.
A relationship is a mutual feeling. You can try to keep your lover happy, but if it starts to feel more like an effort than a pleasant gesture, you’re obviously trying too hard to keep the relationship together, at the cost of your own happiness.
#11 Dependent. Do you feel completely dependent on your partner, emotionally or financially? If you feel helpless without your partner around, it makes you feel weaker and more vulnerable in the relationship. When you feel unconfident in a relationship, it almost always increases the ego of your partner and they’d start to take you for granted.
In a perfect relationship, both partners should participate equally in the relationship. One person should never feel totally dependent on the other.
#12 You’re not yourself. This is a sure sign of walking on eggshells in a relationship. Do you feel like you need to hide a part of you to keep your partner happy or win their affection? If your partner can’t like you for who you truly are, then there’s no point staying in the relationship.
Open up to your partner completely and let them see who you truly are. And if they don’t like the real you, chances are, they don’t deserve you!
When you really want your relationship to work out, it’s easy to start making sacrifices for the sake of your relationship.
But as the weeks of sacrifices turn to months or years, you’d start to realize that you’re not helping the relationship get better. In fact, you’re only making the relationship worse, because your partner wouldn’t know what’s truly on your mind, and you’d find yourself living a frustrating lie.
Instead of forcing love to work and walking on eggshells all the time, just be yourself and let your partner see who you truly are. And if you aren’t happy, walk away. There’s far too much love in your heart to waste it on someone who will never love you back the way you want them to.
