It is just a word, but with unlimited emotions; It is love. When you love another, you tend to gradually give up parts of yourself, whether consciously or unconsciously. At the beginning, it will not appear important, just you using similar words or sentences as your partner does, saying it is out of love. But with time, you realize it is more than that. This is because love changes us. To have a strong and solid love relationship that lasts, we need to be true to ourselves, to who we really are! Remember that your details made the other person fall for you, so do not give up on them. Do not change yourself because you are special.
The following are few tips on how not to lose yourself in a relationship:
Try not to imitate your partner in an exaggerated way because s/he will get fed up eventually and will not tolerate it Doing an activity together can be really fun. But this does not mean that you should give up on things you like, which the other person does not.
Remember that it is good to be separated for few hours in order to appreciate the value of time spent together. Being honest does help you communicate better.
If you like or dislike something, just say it! Don’t be afraid of expressing your true self. Don’t try too hard or give up on your dreams, because whenever something wrong happens, you will feel so bad later on, thinking like you have lost your time with the wrong person, which is not necessarily the case.
Remember that if you two fight, it is not the end of the world, so do not try to lose yourself and values. Do not become a different person. Give it some time and it will be ok. Don’t blame yourself whenever something bad occurs. You are both responsible for what happens so it is not all on you. Learn how to share the good as well as the bad. Try to avoid being a yes man person.
That is boring my dear! Never stop exploring yourself and what you seek to do and accomplish. That will spice things up between you and your partner. Remember to love yourself before loving another! That makes you strong, charming and very attractive! Confidence is very important. After all, not losing yourself means winning your relationship and keeping it solid.
