BE CAREFUL ABOUT being too much of a chameleon.
So often, we blend with the person we love, and carve off and discard little pieces of ourselves to fit in.
We think of ourselves as selfish if we need ‘alone time’, or if we request help. We fear being thought of as a taker. We fear derision.
You can’t move out of your personality and let your significant other move in to occupy every space. Otherwise you’re not ‘you’ any more, and you’ve blended yourself fully with ‘them’.
You choose to give up your freedom. When you have the courage to demand respect, and not play ‘nice’ all the time… your relationship will flourish.
Your right to be you doesn’t threaten your spouse’s right to be themselves.
Retain yourself. That’s why your spouse fell in love with you in the first place.
