When we’re in a relationship it can be easy to become all absorbed with it and loose ourselves. It’s important to not let that happen and maintain some sense of self. Relationships with two independent people often last much longer than codependent relationships as the couple involved don’t put too much pressure on each other.
People that are too dependant never feel fully satisfied in a relationship as they’re constantly disappointed that their partner is giving them everything they need. The truth is that no one can give you what you need other than yourself. If you’re not happy within yourself then a partner will not be able to change that.
Independent couples help each other grow as they know their own minds and can support each other with their individual growth. If you find yourselves becoming too dependant in your relationship then make sure you spend time apart. Do things you love doing either on your own or with other friends. Remember to enjoy the things that you used to love before you became a couple. Just because your together now doesn’t mean you can’t still do those things.
