How to Stop Losing Yourself in a Relationship

losing yourself in a relationship

If you tend to lose yourself in a relationship, listen to this episode as I coach Salli, who gave up parts of herself in past relationships.

Salli wrote in to the show: “I’m not currently dating as I can’t figure out how to balance all I have going on with work and home and my son. But in my past relationships, my issue was losing myself, even though I’m independent and happy and have a lot going for me. I focus so much on the other person and I’m anxiously attached, even when I feel great alone. I have often chosen men that need me to support them emotionally or financially or they don’t love all of me or fully accept me. They want all the good stuff and I get parts of them.”

Listen as I coach Salli about how to reclaim the parts of herself that get lost, and how to prevent losing herself in a relationship in the future.
