Walking on eggshells

If you hide harmless details from your partner—who you’re hanging out with, what you’re doing—because you know they will take it the wrong way, even though you know there is nothing wrong with it, that’s a problem. A lot of people justify this by saying “oh, he just gets nervous about this or that. It’s better if I don’t tell him.”  But that is not healthy. There is major insecurity on your partner’s part if you have to lie to him about harmless things you are doing. Or maybe, you could be out doing things you know you have no business getting into that you should reconsider out of respect for your partner. Either way, the longer you do this, and the more you indulge his insecurities and don’t make him face them, you’ll just keep having to come up with more elaborate lies.
