Being in love can be intoxicating.
It can take you by surprise and make you do things that you never believed you could or would do.
Most people who truly love a person would be willing to do a lot for that person.
They would also be willing to give up certain things for the person that they are in love with.
There are people who have changed their religion in order to be with the person that they are in love with.
There are people who have given up a certain type of food, manner of speaking or even way of life for the person that they are in love with.
There are people who have forced themselves to look at life in a totally different way from how they were brought up for the sake of the person that they are in love with.
In other words, once love gets into the brain, it can make people do all kinds of things in order to appease or make the person that they are in love with happy.
Some of these changes can be totally healthy.
If you are now having a healthier lifestyle after having given up eating badly and not exercising because this person that you love lives a healthy lifestyle, this is a good thing.
You make a healthier body which leads to a healthier mind which ultimately leads to a healthier relationship.
You would improve your health, method of living and perhaps even add a few more years or more to your life that you can continue spending with this person that you are in love with.
All of this is good.
This was a change that you were willing to do for the person that you are in love with that ultimately helped you and gave you a better way of living.
Another healthy change is when you are willing to start compromising on things for the sake of the person that you are in love on an equal level.
You are no longer only concerned about what makes you happy but also about what makes this person that you are in love with happy as well.
When you can find a happy balance between doing what makes you happy and doing what makes this person that you are in love with happy, you can effect a healthy change into your life that can help your relationship last.
With all this said, there are people that take being in love too far.
Being in love with someone doesn’t mean that your entire life should revolve around that person.
Where people go wrong in certain things that they are willing to do or give up for that person they are in love with is when they make it all about that person.
They believe that they can’t simply be happy unless the other person that they are in love with has everything that they want.
Unfortunately, by doing this, they are sending the message that their needs no longer matter in the relationship.
This makes the relationship one-sided and very unhealthy.
Relationships that are all about what the one person wants as opposed to what both parties want tend to lead to despair and misery.
You are also an important part of this partnership and you should never forget that.
Always value what you contribute to the partnership and look at yourself as an equal partner in it.
This allows the both of you to have a better appreciation for each other and thereby have more respect for each other.
