Confession Time: I think I might be too needy in my relationship. Call me a stage five clinger or pathetic or whatever you’d like, but I know what I am. I love my boyfriend more than anything, and I would choose to be with him and hang out with him over pretty much everyone. I like to check up with him throughout the day, and I think we are both pretty keen on being informed about what’s going on in our day-to-day lives.
Does that make me too clingy or dependent on him? Maybe. I’m still not sure!
When you’re in a relationship, it’s hard not to become totally consumed by it. I’ve learned that there is a big difference between a relationship and an unhealthy relationship–a dependent relationship.
Being too dependent on your boyfriend means that you can lose your identity. You get so wrapped up in their life that you forget to live your own. You become needy and clingy and feel like you cannot survive without them. It’s not good to rely on just one person for all your happiness. It’s actually a recipe for disaster.
