For a relationship to be healthy, you need to make one thing very clear: the popular phrase, “I love you, but I don’t need you.” Our partner should know that life with him/her is incredibly wonderful, makes us grow and become a better person, but is not indispensable. Nobody wants to have on their shoulders the responsability of having their partner’s life happiness. They have to know that life is better when both of you are together; however, separation is not going to collapse the dreams and future of each. Before being a couple, you are also individuals and the life of each one must be complete without the presence of the other. It is necessary to preserve one’s own identity so that you don’t have a dependent relationship. No one is indispensable! Your partner is a part of your world, not your whole world.
