10 Ways You Let Your Relationship Define You Without Even Realizing It

Posted on

8. YOU NEVER TAKE TIME APART TO BE ALONE. We all need time to rest and recharge by ourselves, no matter how much we may enjoy socializing. When you become too consumed by your relationship, you’ll find yourself with zero time alone, which can have a huge impact on your mental and emotional health. Make sure you and your partner have boundaries and are able to have time apart. Spending every waking moment with him isn’t the sign of a healthy relationship; it’s actually a sign that you might need to take a break sooner or later.

9. YOU WOULDN’T KNOW HOW TO COPE IF YOU WERE SUDDENLY SINGLE. Before your partner came into your life you were single, so you could totally manage if you suddenly found yourself single again. However, if you feel like this wouldn’t be the case, you have a problem. If your relationship is the center of your world, of course you’ll feel petrified by the thought of breaking up. Breakups are usually inevitable, so don’t let it get to the point where you feel like your entire life depends on your relationship.

10. YOU PUT TOO MUCH PRESSURE ON WHERE YOUR RELATIONSHIP IS GOING.Perhaps you catch yourself thinking about the future too often or you put a lot of pressure on your partner to make plans. You want the entire package: a big wedding, a nice house, and an adorable family. However, if you’re only thinking about these things because it feels like something you have to do, that’s not good. You should want to take further steps in your relationship because you love your partner, not because you have such high expectations. If you’re putting too much pressure on planning for the future in your relationship, things are going to break down eventually.
