Did you feel as if you were being used? That your partner was hitching a ride on your powerful and important star? There was some mismatch in your pairing -- one of you may have been older or much more successful in life.
Regardless of the mismatch, it tore the two of you apart. Others -- family members? important friends? -- may have disapproved of your pairing. Adding to the chaos, you likely got together in inopportune circumstances. Was one of you cheating on someone else? Did your coming together spell the coming apart of another pairing? Those around you who were down on your partnership seemed hellbent on fanning the fires of dissent between you; you received constant negative feedback when you shared problems with others.If you had wanted this to work, you were going to have to unchain the emotional baggage that caused you to reach out to others for reassurance. If you were happy where you were, why did you listen to others' opinions? Why did you seek advice? You should have kept your problems to yourself instead. Certainly your mate would have appreciated the privacy. Even better, you wouldn't have been made to see the bad side of every one of your mate's moves.
