It’s always easier to point out the flaws in others than it is to recognize our own. When it comes to selfishness in relationships, most of us are woefully oblivious to our inconsiderate ways. And as hurtful as our actions may be to the people we love, they’re usually not the result of malicious intent. Of course, unmindfulness is not a plausible excuse to continue down the path of selfishness. We should always strive to do better and be better for ourselves and the people who matter to us. The first step is always a self-check, so here are ten signs that you’re an inconsiderate partner:
