Life is about change. As we grow and have new lived experiences, we also tend to expand our understanding and evolve, at our own pace. Sometimes in relationships, we may also together adapt and change to build a new pattern together as partners. And that’s okay too.
However, change when enforced upon a person in the name of love is not okay. Change cannot be a condition for loving a person or withholding love. This kind of forced change can be a sign of manipulation and control which are toxic traits in a relationship. It can bring with it a diminished sense of self-worth, lower confidence, confusion, and shame.
If you are experiencing something like this know that it is not okay. You are enough and deserve to be loved.
