Selfishness in a relationship is the underlying cause of most failed relationships. Nothing can be more hurting to a partner than the lack of concern, care and love from the other partner. Selfishness in a relationship stems from small incidents and then, it takes the form of a habit in which one of the partners suffers excessively due to the growing unrest in the relationship.
I do not expect him to be perfect. I just expect there is a mutual understanding that relationships are based on a certain sense of belonging, care, and a manifestation of love. I expect when making any decision in everyday life, even the simple ones, he thinks of me first BEFORE making those decisions.
Selfishness starts when he thinks about his own physical and emotional needs before your own.
So how do you fix it?
Is it even fixable?
Is this the kind of relationship you even want to be?
Will it always be like this?
How long do you tolerate it before you explode and feel isolated?
“You can never truly love anyone else until you love yourself. Until you really love yourself, your love for others is purely selfish. It is an attempt to fulfill the missing part of you with whatever you enjoy about them.Therefore, I cannot trust others who don’t love themselves to truly have my best interests at heart.” ~ Danielle Marie Crume, writer
