4. They Love Me
Nip this idea in the bud before it takes over in your mind. A person who knows that they’re causing you pain but still repeat their actions over and over again is not someone who loves you and they’re not likely to at any point. Even if they think they love you, it doesn’t matter if that doesn’t come across in their attitude towards you. Sometimes your partner might just be with you because they like how the attention you give them makes them feel and not because of any particular feeling towards you. They like having a hold on you and you like to think of yourself as a martyr to the cause of bringing them back to what you believe is the light. Relationships only work when both partners have something meaningful to contribute to each other. You’re not supposed to be trying to one-up each other in everything.
5. I’m In A Relationship
No, you’re not. This is not what a relationship looks like. When the two of you are stuck in a seemingly never-ending battle between your individual needs and what you both feel like you’re forced to do for each other, it is really not a relationship. To be in one, both of you need to be on level ground. You need to be able to find the happiness you’re looking for in each other. Healthy love isn’t a breeding ground for resentment and hate. When you experience it, you’ll know what it is.
So, now that you know the signs to watch out for, it is up to you to stay or leave. Remember that, in a relationship, there are only two of you and no one else will be able to get you out if you aren’t willing to help yourself.
