I'm just coming out of a long term relationship that I put a lot of time and effort into. My co-dependent ways had me constantly compromising my own needs to meet his. I'm always happiest when the people I care about are happy, therefore I am the flexible one to ensure satisfaction. My biggest struggle is giving to those who don't give back. I spent a year hoping this man that I cared about would see how much I valued him, and in return he would value me. That was not the case. He never cared for me the way I cared for him. Going forward into new relationships I need to make sure I stay true to myself . But I am not sure how to accomplish this goal, since it is in my very nature to please the people I care about the most.
