Direct from my desk – week 34

A relationship is a delicate balancing act between your needs and the needs of the other person.  It’s difficult not to get sucked so far into someone’s life that you start to lose your footing in your life.  Once you start to feel that you’re giving more than you’re getting, you will begin to feel resentful and take it out on the other person.  If you listen carefully, you can hear the bells tolling, proclaiming the beginning of the end.

It is mandatory that you maintain some sense of autonomy within your relationship.  Not only in keeping up with your life outside your relationship but also in your ability to set and achieve goals independent of your partner.  Do not allow yourself to become someone (for better or worse) that you do not recognize.  Your partner fell in love with you – make sure you are maintaining that person.
