Feeling co-dependent in love? You’re not alone. The downside to any duo is a tendency to forget that two ones make a right! Here are four ways to put the YOU back in YOUR relationship!
Fulfill Your Own Needs
Yes, it’s nice to count on someone else sometimes, but when you count on them all the time, you’re bound to be let down – and resentful! Instead of waiting for your girlfriend to cook you dinner or your guy to change a bulb, do a few (unexpected) things for yourself sometimes.
Reclaim Your Interests
If you’re feeling stifled, set aside some time once a week and reclaim an old hobby… or take up something new you’ve always wanted to try. No partners allowed!
Sometimes we think that because we’re paired up, we don’t need friends. Nothing could be further from the truth! Without a circle of people around to spend time with, any twosome will get tired.
Dedicate Yourself to Your Own Growth
Don’t make the mistake of thinking your spiritual, intellectual and/or emotional development is done now that you’re settled down. Put some time into yourself and the ways you want to grow… you and your relationship will benefit!
