Are You Your First Priority?
Sometimes when you get into a relationship with someone else you tend to put yourself on the back burner. You are not Your First Priority.
It is vital in any relationship that you stay loyal to yourself first.
If you are not your top priority, problems can arise in your relationship quickly.
In some cases, you try so hard to please the person that you are with you don’t please yourself and you lose who you are in the relationship.
Being in love with someone doesn’t mean that you must follow the path they have chosen for themselves.
It means that you follow your paths together – as a couple.
I know you want to do everything you can to make the life of your partner easy, but in the process are you doing things for them that make your life harder?
If you are, then stop it.
I’m not saying to not do things for your partner, I’m just saying that you should set some boundaries.
If you are in a good relationship, then you shouldn’t have any doubts about where your relationship stands.
You should feel very secure in what is going on in your life because you have a partner who respects who you are as much as you do.
Have you given up everything that is important to you?
Friends, family, fun times, education, or your dreams for your life?
You shouldn’t even think about doing any of that.
The perfect love of your life will encourage you to continue to do all of the things you did before.
They will accept you for who you are and not expect you to change.
Don’t change for anyone and don’t allow anyone to make you think you are “less than” in your relationship.
Remember YOU are your own best friend and taking care of yourself, physically and mentally is the best thing you can do.
Be who you are and enjoy a partner that enjoys that. Don’t settle for anyone who wants you to be different than exactly who you are.
You support the love of your life and they support you.
You can still do things that you love to do, and your partner can still do the things they love to do.
The important thing is that you meet in the middle to do things as a couple and care for each other’s needs as separate people.
