You can still have a single identity

While being a caring partner does mean considering another’s feelings when you make decisions, don’t let that slide into a place of losing your individual identity. For many, “that new relationship replaces them as an individual or a single person. So now that you’re not single, everything revolves around this other person. NO! You still need a life and your connection with you,” Howard says. “If you’re lacking that, that’s going to impact your relationship as a whole. The relationship you have with yourself is always going to impact other relationships. That relationship with yourself will help you have boundaries and know how to compromise in a healthy way.”
