Moving forward into your future could be a difficult process for the two of you to accomplish in your relationship. This person wants to help you find your life path, but that help could actually come out as interference. You're each responsible for your own lives, after all, and for shaping your own futures.
You can't rely on each other to do the hard work for you of figuring out what direction you need to take in life; more than that, you can't try to figure it out for each other. We each have our own journey through life, one that is full of mistakes as well as triumphs and 'happy accidents.' To try to guide someone else along their path is not only controlling, it's presumptuous. What does any of us really know about what another person needs to do to get wherever they're going in life? In this one regard, we should really just focus mainly on ourselves and our own journeys. If you find your lover trying to take too much control over your life path, you have to ask yourself why. Is it that they're afraid that your path leads you away from them? That's a risk in any relationship, that you might end up growing apart. But if that happens, it's for the best. You need to learn to let each other follow your paths with as little 'help' -- or interference -- as possible.
