But then that person does lose themselves also. You’re right, of course, the reasons may be different. For some it’s a positive and their partner appreciates the energy they put in and they’re glad to spend it there. For some, it’s a negative, the partner takes it for granted, and they’re giving up everything for not so much in return. But the story is similar: we have to learn it’s not our job to care for our significant other’s every need, but to support them as best as we can while never forgetting to carry ourselves first. Thank you for sharing!
