What Your Partner Should Never Ask Of You
No two relationships are the same, and compromise is important for a successful partnership. But even so, there are some things that your significant other should never ask of you. Bustle put together a list, so if you think your relationship is hurting, maybe your partner is crossing a line somewhere that they shouldn't be.
- Isolating you from your friends or family could be a serious red flag if your partner does not want you interacting with anyone other than them. If they are trying to limit your time with specific people, this could be a controlling behavior that you should be wary of.
- Downplay your successes especially when they expect you to celebrate every little thing that they do. You should have a partner that is supportive of you for everything that you do, just as you would be of them.
- Change who you fundamentally are can be a scary thought, but if your partner is trying to change you in any way such as forcing you to have the same beliefs or convictions that they do, then this is a real issue.
Relationships are tough things to navigate, but you should never have to feel trapped or stuck. You should always have the ability to continue to choose to be with your partner, and hopefully, never have to feel like you can't leave.
