4. You Should Compromise Your Creature Comforts
What can we say? Relationships are annoying sometimes. If things are equal in the relationship, then there will be times where both of you have to give up your creature comforts.
For example, in order to cuddle your significant other all night long, you’ll probably have to give up sleeping like a starfish.
If you’re with someone who’s always hot, you might have to get used to feeling cold and turn off the heater to suit them. It’s all about compromise. As long as both sides are equally giving up their small comforts, it’s a natural part of all relationships.
3. You Shouldn’t Compromise All “Me Time”
“Me Time” tends to be the first thing to go when someone gets into a serious relationship. When you’re trying to balance your significant other with family, friends, work, fitness, and hobbies, those fifteen-minute meditations and quick afternoon naps start occurring less and less.
You might want to give up that time to yourself before you give up time with your friends or time at work but think about keeping some of it. Self-care is important, don’t forget! You can’t be there for anybody else if you’re not there for yourself. R&R time will decrease, but it doesn’t have to disappear altogether.
