    ‘Us’ or ‘I’ and ‘You’

    A perfect relationship is about ‘us’, it is neither ‘you’ nor ‘I’. If your partner does not pay heed to your advices needs and thoughts and keep boasting about himself/her, better to move out of the relationship.

    The lost Support System

    If your partner undermines your talent and success, never mind appreciating it, it can be a reason of differences between both of you. If you are surviving in the relationship at the expense of your self-respect, better to move on.  Your partner should be your critic but must also be the motivational force behind all your accomplishments.
