If you feel like you’re carrying all the weight in your relationship, guess what?
You probably are!
Why should you do all the work, give and give and give, while someone else takes and does relatively little?
If this is you– doing all the heavy lifting to keep your relationship running– STOP.
Successful relationships require two people working together. If you’re the one offering yourself up all the time and killing yourself to keep it going while the other person makes zero to little effort, you’re doing it all wrong.
No one should be doing all the giving, loving, sweating and heavy work of the relationship alone.
No one should be taking whatever is given to him or her, while doing nothing or, not much at all.
There will always be times when your relationship will not be equal. One person will do more giving and the other, more taking, but this shouldn’t be a constant. If it is, stop giving and start demanding more of the person you are with. You deserve to take as much as you give.
