What’s scarier is that your partner slowly feels their identity and self-worth fading out. Due to several reasons that may include performance, work, peer pressure, it’s not invalid that these circumstances may arise. They become wary of the fact that their relationship maybe is the only thing that defines them now. They need to understand that, it’s only another important part of their life. Passion, hobbies, relationships with other people are equally important to go on in life. Both of you must maintain a balance and prioritise a healthy independent lifestyle chasing their friends, interests and passions. When you don’t support your partner’s goals and views, they may feel distant and thus, can start leading their separate lives. Recognise and acknowledge each other’s careers, priorities and opinions. It’ll uplift both your views.
