3 signs you are with the wrong person

12 July 2016, 17:06 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Most people do not know of the significance of the impact that a relationship and the person you choose to be with has on your life. We tend to assume that you can compartmentalise it the way you can like your work, career, school and everything else like your social life.

But committing to someone and relationships have a way of changing who you are, how you think and how you tend to approach things. So when you choose to be with a person that is not meant for you, you will indirectly influence every other aspect of your life.

We choose to be in relationships these days not because of affection, love, you actually liking the person and wanting to be with them but because; we are in a rush, it seems like the next step-makes sense,  everyone else around you has settled and you are the only one remaining among other reasons.

You let the relationship define you

Because it is your focus, it becomes your sole purpose. You tend to lose yourself in that relationship because you did not know how to be alone and finding yourself. That is why some break ups eclipse some people. You now do not know how to move on or start from where because they were your ‘world’.

They dictate your decisions

You would have really liked to go another way but since they do not like it that way, you do what they want. Someone who is meant for you, will understand the direction that you are coming from with any situation and everything. They will advise but not dictate or judge your decisions to a detrimental effect.

You will do whatever you need to do without feeling guilty on its effect on your relationship.

Your values are not in sync

You know why they tell you to settle with someone that has the same values as you do? Because it matters. You do not want to try and grow, develop and move in a certain direction with someone that does not get ‘it’ or you. You will be frustrated and in most times what happens is that people give up. Then they are bitter and resentful later on talking about how someone killed their dreams.
