“Dependency and infatuation can easily be mistaken for love. If you don’t trust someone and feel held back by them more than you feel encouraged by them, it’s time to be honest with yourself and do something about it. Just because someone desires you, does not mean that they value you.”
Quite an eye-opener for a random post i read today. This is certainly giving me a lot to think about.
When we choose the people we want to commit ourselves to intimately, it’s important to realize that the intimate alone time we are going to spend with them is not the only part of our life they will have an impact on.
The support and encouragement received from a significant other carries a different kind of weight than that from a friend or family member. This is someone who should also be your best friend and head cheerleader.
A clear sign of a healthy relationship is when their presence in your life alone will motivate you to become the best version of yourself – without changing who you really are.
This includes personal as well as professional development. To always be improving. Striving for success. Wanting the best for you and for them. Not just for financial reasons, but because it will strengthen you as a couple as well.
