Do you need to find some balance in your relationship? Do you feel as if the control and security between you and your guy have shifted to a point where you feel a little off? Do you ever feel as though you are losing yourself in a partnership that isn’t really equal? The following tips will help you to regain some confidence, and find balance in your relationship.
Tip #1 – Don’t take over as a caretaker.
Women often want to take care of their men. Sometimes they end up always doing house chores. Sometimes it feels natural to be the one to organize all of the activities, and start behaving like a social director. This can leave you in the role of organizer, and a guy can check out of the day-to-day details. Manage your own activities, but let him both manage his and take the lead sometimes.
Tip #2 – Maintain outside interests.
Sometimes, women can get too wrapped up in their relationships. If your guy is the central concern of your life, you won’t have balance in your relationship. Stay in touch with your old friends. Stay active in outside interests.
Tip #3 – Just say no.
You are not obligated to attend every family gathering. You also don’t have to do everything your man does. If you bend over backwards to meet every request or need, you will lose control of your own priorities.
Tip #4 – Draw a line in the sand.
It’s nice to try new things with your significant other. But go with your gut. If there is anything making you uncomfortable, go ahead and set some boundaries. If you feel like you are losing yourself in your relationship, talk to him and pull back.
In order to make sure that you are an equal partner in your relationship, don’t lose the girl that you were before you met him. If you can build a partnership without getting lost in being half of a couple, you will have balance in your relationship.
