How many times have you found yourself adjusting who you truly are for a partner? Thinking "I am overemotional," "I am too clingy," or "I am annoying."
And the worst part is that a lot of so-called significant others never miss an opportunity to add gasoline into the fire by throwing negative comments and painful remarks. And finding the one who will accept you fully seems unrealistic.
But he does exist. And guess what: if he can't get enough of you - you are not too much.
If You Can't Be Yourself, You Are With The Wrong Guy
Whatever the reason is, he always treats you like a mild inconvenience. He tells you not to sing along in the car or stop laughing.
With time, you start to believe him and question yourself: "What's wrong with me?". You begin to tone down your emotions, keep most opinions to yourself and slowly grow into a state of complete self-loathing.
And after the breakup, of course, you are the one to blame yourself. Because you were bothering him with your behavior, and he just couldn't take it any longer.
But in reality, having to pretend to be someone else to fit your partner's expectations means that you are with the wrong guy.
Who Does He Think He Is?
Being able to express your authentic self is an inevitable part of harmonious living. Hiding your emotions can lead to severe repercussions like mental health struggles and low overall well-being.
And the fact that he would let you beat yourself up emotionally means that he's either not taking your relationship seriously or he loves himself way too much. The bottom line is that he has no right to make you feel miserable.
That's just not how it works.
A healthy partnership has to be built on mutual respect, honesty, and vulnerability. It goes both ways - if you ever find yourself telling him not to behave a certain way, maybe you are not right for him.
You Are Not Too Much, You Are Just The Right Amount
You are wonderful the way you are! With all your little quirks and imperfections. Acknowledging them and being grateful to yourself is the first step to self-love.
Having them acknowledged and accepted by a loved one - is the first step to a meaningful companionship.
Staying by your side and loving you no matter the qualities of a guy who deserves your attention. For him, you will never be too much because he will accept you for you.
And yes, finding this kind of affection will take time. But, oh, it is so worth finding.
The moment you realize that you do not need to pretend to be someone else and tone down your emotions and impulses - you are in the right place. Just make sure that you are giving exactly what you are receiving: acceptance and pure love.
When You Know - You Know
Don't worry. It won't be long before you find yourself in a healthy and mutually nurturing relationship. Maybe you are already in one.
Cherish this authenticity and channel it in every way possible. Stay true to yourself and your partner and always keep in check with your feelings and emotions.
Remember that if he can't get enough of you - you are not too much. You are just the right amount!
