The good news is, this influence isn't a huge problem unless other aspects make the whole relationship challenging, but it could become an issue between you. Your partner's life path is important to their development as a human being, and they might be held up along their path by your natural way of meeting the world. If your communication is afflicted, for example, they could have some trouble getting across to you what their needs and goals in life are.
If your intimacy is afflicted, they could have trouble feeling close because their life path and the daily ways that you live always seem to lead them away from you. If you are a committed couple, your lover has to pull you out of your comfort zone and into theirs if they want to feel like they're doing right by themselves, and going where they need to go; and neither of you is happy with that. Their life path simply might not be negotiable, and it's you who has to make all the compromises, but they don't like forcing you to change your lifestyle any more than you like making the change. Talking things out openly and honestly helps, as does accepting each other as the people you are, instead of trying to force each other to be whoever you each wish the other were.
