Signs you are working too hard in your relationship

24 September 2014, 16:50 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - You may be in a relationship but you are walking on eggshells with your partner. You are even afraid of confronting them because you are afraid of their reactions. By trying too hard, one of you is the one trying to make the other happy instead of it just coming effortlessly. You change yourself, your habits even your personality just to make it work with them. They end up not appreciating you and taking you for granted because for them it is just an easy ride.

Too eager to please

Giving, giving, giving, it is all about you giving but never taking. You even forget that when you came into this relationship you had your on expectations and you now overlook them.  They become secondary to all your partners because it is all about you pleasing him or her.

Turning the blind eye

In your eyes they are just too perfect, you even wonder what they are doing with a person like you. In a relationship there is nothing like a person like you. Initially, they knew how good you are, it is you who gave them the power of looking down on you. You do not see any of the faults they may have. They are even not afraid to show it because you have proven over and over that you are there to stay.

Taking the blame

Every time something goes wrong you would rather think it was your fault just to avoid an argument. The said partner is likely to use manipulative tactics to show you how it could never be their fault but yours.

Decision Maker

They are the ones that make the decision and not you. You are never even involved in the process in the first place. You are insecure that you may say something wrong which will lead to your partner faulting you. In the long run you end up feeling useless and powerless in the relationship. Why are you still there?

A good relationship is one that makes you feel good about yourself and it gives you confidence. If it does the opposite you are in the wrong place then. The worst are usually the ones who proclaim that they will do anything for love. I think that the kind of love in such a relationship equates to slavery. You are the one chasing his tail while the master teaches you new tricks to please him or her.
