It’s beautiful when you have someone in your life who understands you completely and whom you can give all the love you have in your heart.
But let me just tell you that there is a fine limit!
Believe it or not, there is a limit to how much you should invest yourself into a relationship and no matter how frustrated you might be by this information, it’s crucial that you are aware of it.
It’s really wonderful to invest yourself into a relationship and fulfill all your partner’s needs but just know that if he is not doing the same in return, he is taking advantage of you.
Sometimes we forget that we have to get our own wants and needs in front of someone else’s.
Especially if they are not paying much attention to us.
There are numerous times when a woman gives herself away too much, where she does everything to make her partner happy, but it doesn’t have to be like that for you.
If these signs really do correspond with your relationship, if you can find yourself doing all those things, then it’s time to stop.
You shouldn’t be giving everything you have to someone who doesn’t do the same in return.
1. You feel frustrated all the time
Although you are fighting it, you still feel yourself getting frustrated over how little effort your partner puts into your relationship.
You are irritated and sometimes even passive-aggressive simply because you aren’t getting what you need in return and it hurts to know that.
No matter how much you love someone, the frustration you feel is real! It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to fight it, deep down you know that you are investing yourself too much into the relationship.
2. You are always the one who apologizes
When it’s your fault, then OK. But if you keep on fixing every little problem in your relationship by yourself, then you have a problem.
How many times have you found yourself in a situation where you have apologized for getting angry at him?
You got angry for a reason! You are just too invested in the relationship to admit that he is being a jerk to you.
3. You got to the point where you can’t say when something bothers you
You know things are bad when you get to this point. You know that there is something wrong in your relationship but for some reason you choose to keep it to yourself.
You find him to be so happy and without a worry in the world, so why should you change that?
For that same reason, you end up being very quiet about everything that’s wrong.
4. You are exhausted
You feel tired all the time but it kicks in the most when you talk or think about your relationship.
You always cook for him and you adjust yourself to his schedule, even though he doesn’t do that for you and so on.
There is nothing that you wouldn’t do for him but it seems like he doesn’t appreciate it and he doesn’t do anything to return the favor.
It’s just you, constantly investing yourself without ever asking for anything.
5. You are the first one to remember important dates
We all know when our relationship anniversaries are, right? Well, not him.
He doesn’t even remember the date when you started going out and he might even forget your birthday.
You are always the one with the gifts and wishes, while all he does is apologize for forgetting and never doing anything to make up for it.
After a while, it becomes devastating, especially if he forgets dinners and dates with you.
6. You support his dreams but he doesn’t support yours
You are extremely supportive about everything he does simply because you love him and you believe in him.
But he doesn’t do the same, right?
All he does is roll his eyes and say stupid things to demotivate you from achieving what you want.
You even try to help him achieve whatever he has set his mind to, while all he does is put you down.
7. You are always the one to text first
At the end of the day, it’s not always just texting; calling, initiating conversations—you do all of these things first.
He rarely comes up to you and he rarely tries to initiate a conversation via text or IRL.
You are always the first one to ask how his day went and if he is feeling all right. There is no greater sign that you are investing yourself into a relationship more than your partner than this one right here.
