Here are some signs you may be putting all your energy into maintaining your partner’s happiness while completely ignoring your own:
1. You constantly placate him rather than telling him what you’re really thinking.
You say what you think he would want to hear rather than what you actually want or feel. In this scenario, you are unconsciously protecting yourself from criticism or rejection.
It’s important to be honest with your partner and yourself. Say what you mean, and mean what you say. You want to be accepted for who you are — not what you think he wants you to be.
