Checklist (Photo credit: adesigna)

 

Lately I’ve been having a little trouble with my priorities.  I’ve been focusing a little too much on outward things and not enough on spiritual or personal things.  My life has changed recently, and I’ve been having trouble adjusting.  I went from being eternally single to being engaged in the space of less than a year, and, while I wouldn’t change that for anything, and I’m happier than I’ve ever been, I’m also having difficulty resetting my priorities.

My beloved is the most important person in my life now, and he is also the person whose opinion is the most important.  However, I think I may have actually allowed his opinions to actually supersede my own.  He doesn’t want that, and neither do I.  In a relationship, its important that both people feel loved and accepted, and I should be loving and accepting myself as much as I love and respect him.  It is unkind of me to treat myself in this way and I am going to try to do better in respect to respecting myself.

Am I alone?  Has anyone else ever felt this way?

  1. First of all, congratulations on your engagement! Second of all, you are definitely not alone. I’ve been there in every type of relationship I’ve been for most of my life. And as someone who is now going through a divorce, I can tell you it is VERY important to work on these kind of things. It’s good you have recognized it early on. Find balance and keep your communication lines open. It sounds like you found a smart guy, I wish you the best of luck! 🙂
