366: Losing yourself in relationships

At Carla’s recent Hen Parties (yes… there were 2!) everyone wrote a piece of advice regarding marriage and relationships. A common thread was about keeping your individual selves within the marriage. It’s quite easy to lose yourself in a relationship, married or not! We chat on this topic and more.

This is what we spoke about during the episode

  • When Joel and I started dating five years ago, I definitely lost myself in the beginning. The book Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés completely changed my life and how I approach my relationship.
  • It’s a lot easier to keep your individual self when you have a really strong sense of yourself.
  • Why setting boundaries and prioritising the relationship with yourself is important.
  • Don’t wait for the relationship, do all the things alone.
  • What to do if you have lost yourself?
