Relationships must be a source of happiness, joy, support and motivation. That is why it is so difficult to realize that your partner is emotionally draining you. The truth is that he can do it both consciously and unconsciously - usually according to the second option.
If you are in such a situation, it does not mean that you need to immediately part with it. If he does it unconsciously, you just have to discuss it and find a solution. Here are signs that this is happening:
1 He gets too much emotional support.
Maintain each other in a relationship is very important. But if he demands too much emotional support from you, that’s a bad sign. Of course, you love him and want to help him, but what about you? Does he satisfy your emotional needs?
It doesn't matter if you are discussing an important question or is it an empty argument, does it give you the opportunity to speak without interrupting you? If you are afraid to utter a word because it can get angry, it is definitely emotionally draining you.
Does your man constantly complain about everything that happens in his life? It is possible that you prepared for dinner not what he expected, or that you pay little attention to him. He also aches because of life problems and lack of money. Just unbearable to listen to complaints every day. Not to mention the fact that he spreads negative, but not positive.
Does he expect you to be the perfect wife? And a passionate lover? And to make good money? Does he want you to be perfectly beautiful around the clock? If he has too high expectations that you cannot handle, it's time to seriously talk.
Some men just can not see how a woman is sad or crying, because they are trying to leave without giving support shoulder. How does your man behave in such situations? He doesn’t have to say anything, he just has to be there to show that he doesn’t care.
When you are emotionally exhausted, you long to spend more time alone to recover your energy.If your man is the main reason why you want it, you need to change the situation before she brought you to depression.
Too high expectations, suppression of feelings, experiences, stress and fears drain your energy, leaving you chronically tired even after a full night's sleep. When you give too much to a partner, you feel exhausted because you get nothing in return.
