How to Stop Losing Yourself in Romantic Relationships

How to Stop Losing Yourself In Romantic Relationships

November 7, 2018  •  Love & Relationships


I had just turned 16 years old when I met the love of my life. I still remember it like it was yesterday. We were young and in love and completely infatuated with each other. Almost a decade and a half later, we're still in each others lives. We know each other better than anyone else and the love that we share for one another is out of this world. (Not to mention, we’re raising a pretty rad kid together).

That said, no relationship is perfect. We've definitely had our ups and our downs and if I could go back in time and talk to my younger self, there are some things I would definitely want to say to her. The first—and probably most important—thing I'd tell her is "don't forget who you are."

Being in love is exciting. It sweeps you off your feet and makes you feel things that only being in love can make you feel. It's powerful. It's also easy to lose yourself; to forget who you are; to make your entire life about them and their needs and completely neglect your own. 

In this week's video, I'm sharing 3 tips for maintaining your sense of self in romantic relationships. 

After you give it a watch, I’d love to hear from you. Which tip resonated with you the most? One, two, or three? Comment below to let me know! 👇🏾
