10 signs You Should Be Worried About Your Relationship

 It's hard to put into words what a strong sense of attachment you should feel for your partner. We can't describe how deep that feeling is, or even its emotional boundaries. But when we first meet someone, many of the things that make us really care about them are vague concepts at best.

This piece will discuss some common signs you should be worried about your relationship, and what to do if they're starting to affect you. If your partner is exhibiting any of these signs in frequency or severity, it's time to start considering whether this relationship is really worth the effort.


1. You feel like you need them to be happy.


At the beginning of any relationship, we rely on our partner for love and affection to make us feel good about ourselves, but that doesn't have to last forever. In order for you to maintain a healthy relationship, you have to be able take care of yourself and your wellbeing without needing their presence. This can be difficult when feelings of attachment become involved, but it's an essential step in maintaining balance in the relationship and keeping it from getting unhealthy.

2. They seem content even when they're not together with you.


Remember when we talked about the idea of having to take care of ourselves and our own needs? That doesn't mean you can't also be happy for your partner's success. They deserve to feel good about themselves and be happy, so it's okay for you to enjoy seeing them when they're around. But when you feel like you're completely dependent on your partner's presence, or that the relationship is a constant battle just to see them or spend time with them, these are the signs of attachment.

3. Your partner is always at work or out with friends or family a lot.


One of the biggest signs of attachment is an unwillingness to be apart from a partner too much. The longer you go without being able to spend time with them, the more attached you're going to feel to them. If a partner is always out with friends, family or co-workers, it's difficult for you to build up this sense of attachment when they don't really have time for you. A healthy relationship doesn't mean spending every waking moment together; it's just about maintaining a balance that allows you and your partner some freedom.

4. They do everything they can to keep you in your comfort zone.

One of the biggest signs of attachment is when a partner gets extremely defensive and emotional when you try to argue about something or ask them for help.


This kind of emotional behavior is completely counterproductive in any relationship and can be very draining, especially if you're relying on them for emotional support. If you find yourself feeling emotionally drained because your partner got angry at you for trying to suggest things to improve their life, that's a sign that this relationship needs some work.

5. They stop being interested in things they used to like doing.


This can be one of the most heartbreaking signs of any relationship, because you're always relying on your partner for entertainment, and you think they should be interested in doing things with you.


But when your partner gets annoyed about something and stops asking to do things that used to interest them, it's a sign that there's an attachment there.

Even if you're trying to make changes in the relationship, your partner could be upset with certain decisions you've made and stop making new ones - or just not coming along at all.

6. You're still in love with them even though they've done things that hurt you.


Even after a lot of time has passed and you've had to deal with a lot of things, it can still be hard to accept that your partner did something that hurt you. But just because they haven't been the best at taking care of your needs doesn't mean they're not worth being around anymore.



If this is weighing on your mind a lot and affecting your ability to do things like enjoy being around other people, it's time to make changes. This kind of attachment happens all the time, and it's just another reminder that we need to take care of ourselves more often!

7. You can't make decisions on your own.

People who are dependent on each other make decisions together, and that's okay. But when you can't even decide what you'd like to eat without asking your partner, that's a little bit of a red flag - especially if they're unwilling to give you the space you need to do things without them. Once again, our relationships are about finding balance.

If you're always relying on your partner for everything they do, they're going to start feeling exhausted and uninterested in doing anything with you.

8. You feel like no one else understands what it's like to be in this relationship with them.

What's the most important sign of attachment? It's when you feel like no one else understands it. When you're always walking on eggshells with your partner, trying to make sure they don't get too mad or upset with you, that's a sign that they must really be important to you.


When other people struggle to understand how hard it is to deal with someone who needs them all the time, suddenly you feel like no one can understand your situation. This is a serious sign that this relationship needs some work.

9. They never listen to what you have to say.


When you're in an unhealthy relationship, the minute your partner is done talking, they start complaining that you only listen to them.

They get angry at you for trying to suggest things and complain that you never listen to them because they always have to follow through on your ideas. This kind of behavior is another sign that there's a serious attachment here.

When someone is always telling you how unhappy they are with your actions and decisions, it's hard to even listen to what they have to say anymore.

10. You feel like they don't really like people besides you.



It's one thing to say that someone is great at being around you or nice to you, but it's another thing to be in a relationship with them where you feel like they don't really enjoy being around anyone else.


They could be trying to have a good time with friends, but if it doesn't look like they're enjoying themselves or feeling cared for, it's a sign that there's a serious attachment.

If other people seem jealous and uncomfortable being around your partner, this is another clear sign that this relationship needs some work and you need to make changes.

Conclusion

When it comes to changes in a relationship, we always want to blame our partner for everything that goes wrong. But it really takes two people willing to make the effort and try something new.


If you're wondering what it means when you can't stop thinking about your partner after a break up, there are some serious signs that they might be your soulmate and they should be at the top of your list.
