When your relationship is on, it's so on. You're passionate and intense, attracted to each other beyond all reason, which is probably why you've been acting like one possessed. But on the other hand, when your pairing's gone sour, it's very, very nasty.
Arguments erupt over things large and small: paying the bills, where to go to dinner, where your relationship is headed. You whine and sulk; your partner regards you with unsympathetic distaste. You've never been one to carry on emotionally, but something about this partnership brings out your weak, cringing, easily-wounded side. It feels as if your mate has all the power, and all you can do is cause irritation like a small stinging insect.If this partnership is to last you simply must learn to give yourself the same respect you give your partner. Stop seeing yourself as unimportant and useless. Demand equal time, and equal rights. You may think you're throwing everything away by standing up to your lover, but paradoxically you'll win the love and respect you crave, the love and respect you never could and never will win by begging.
