12 Signs That You’re Loving One That You Shouldn’t

12 Signs That You’re Loving One That You Shouldn’t

Love is a powerful feeling and most times it is very important to take the position such feeling puts you in seriously. Rather than loving the person you shouldn’t be loving you should be in the right relationship, one that brings out the best in you and makes you feel loved. Here are signs to make you aware that you are loving the one you shouldn’t be in love with.

1. Every encounter leaves you burnt out

You should feel energized with the right person, not stressed and overwhelmed after you have spent some time with them.

2. You are more aware in the relationship

Many decisions should be made spontaneously and automatically when you’re loving the right person. But when you’re loving the wrong person it is as if you are burdened with the decision of including them in every plan you make. For example decisions about your future should not be the one you are anxious about, you should be glad to have them be a part of your future.

3. You do not look forward to every time you want to hang out with them

You are not expectant or excited at the times you will be hanging out with them. Rather it seems to be more like an obligation to be spending time with them.

4. You have arguments a lot

Arguments are important to every relationship, since no one is perfect. But every argument shouldn’t be one where you battle it out to know which one is right or wrong or who is deserving of a win or a defeat.

5. You feel inferior in the relationship

You do not feel complimented by the other person, rather you feel bruised and totally dominated by the other person. As much as you would love the relationship to improve your self-esteem, it diminishes it the more.

6. You do not feel any spark in the relationship

The relationship seems drudgery and boring. While the relationship should make you happy and bring out the light and enthusiasm in you, it is as if it strains you.

7. You do not see things working out in the future

You are not certain about the relationship. You have a lot of doubts, and it is more like “if you are still going to be together.” Such does not make your plans accurate and precise.

8. You do not reveal your true self to them

You are pretending and you are not real in the relationship. You would prefer to present a false persona just to be more appealing and make the other person more comfortable with you.

9. You are very cautious in the relationship

You are not comfortable when you say or do something because you are always worried about how the other person will feel or what they will say about your actions. You tend to over-think every single thing you want to say and how you are going to present your statement to them.

10. You are always defensive and protective of everything you have with them

You are not willing to share or offer your items or resources to them. You see them as a disturbance and an obstacle to living the fullness of your life.

11. You are not willing to show them off to your friends and family

You are not proud of them around you. You do not showcase them and you really do not care about how your friends or family views them.

12. You have a stagnant relationship with them

Your relationship is not progressive, it lacks growth and it never seems as if it is going to the next phase. It is not like any of you cares about where you are in the relationship or even notice the stagnation in the relationship. It actually seems more comforting or assuring for you to stay in the current situation forever rather than make an effort to improve it.

50+ Best Motivational Quotes To Prepare You For Any Challenges In Life

Life is filled with highs and lows —happiness and struggles that will test your resilience and integrity, push you to overcome challenges and leave you with lessons that will make you even stronger on your way up.

It’s the way you feel and think about yourself, including your expectations and beliefs about what is possible to you, greatly determines everything that happens to you.

It all starts with your thoughts. When you change your thoughts, you transform the quality of your life. (Right, Nancy’s story is a typical example!)

Below is a list of the best motivational quotes to inspire you to start your day with a blast:
