This is a huge one.
So many people make the mistake of assuming that once you’re in a relationship, that the two partners just become “one.” Truth be told, this is a myth and it’s a fast track to codependency so I want to warn you against this.
One of the biggest secrets to a highly successful relationship is maintaining both of your personal lives. I briefly touched on this at the beginning of this article, but I can’t stress the importance of this enough. Make sure that you continue to invest in yourself, have personal projects or hobbies, always make sure that there is time in your schedule dedicated to people and activities in YOUR life that make you happy. Don’t put your passions, hobbies and loved ones on the back burner just because you’re in a serious relationship.
It’s refreshing and sexy to cultivate a fulfilling personal life, and your partner will find you that much more attractive as a result. Encourage them to do the same and support your partner in their passions and projects.
Last but not least, learn to be vulnerable with one another. Learn to express your feelings and desires to each other without the fear of being judged. It is up to both of you to create an environment in which you can both feel confident to share what you want to say, and know that you’ll be heard. If you can’t be vulnerable with each other then you’re going to be pretending, and this will create an environment in which you can’t be your authentic selves. As you can imagine, this will damage your relationship.
