It is also important that you continue to respect yourself, and you will respect yourself by being yourself. By continuing to have your friends, to do your own hobbies, to have a career that you love and a healthy lifestyle that serves you, you will wake up every day feeling good about yourself.
And when you feel good about yourself, your partner will love you even more because he knows you are being your true self, someone who is ambitious and smart and willing to take risks to get what she wants.
Unfortunately, staying ourselves in a relationship can be difficult. Marriage is hard and long and it’s hard not to evolve in such a way that mirrors our partner.
