You were stymied by your pairing. You tended to lack confidence in your identify and abilities, and unfortunately, you chose a partner who was so dynamic and intense that you felt you couldn't possibly measure up. You were made to feel that you were underperforming, that you were not living up to your potential.
Your partner seemed to watch your every mood, criticizing all the while. Things weren't done properly if they were not done to their standards, and you felt like you couldn't do anything right.But you needed to resist you tendency to escape into a dream world, frittering away the days while you avoided responsibilities. Though your mate was a bit blunt when expressing your shortcomings, there was actually much to be said for the point of view you were trying to ignore. You could have been a little more attentive to your work and to your mate's needs. If you wanted to make it work there was room for compromise between your varying viewpoints -- and you had to find that middle ground. It was uncomfortable for you to confront your problems so nakedly, but you would have had to find a way if you wanted this partnership to endure.
