To be selfless in a relationship isn’t quite an easy task. We tend to think more about ourselves than our partner or the relationship — that’s a trait of humans. But then, it’s up to a person to outgrow that act of selfishness and self-centredness and mature into a selfless person with each day.
However, inasmuch as we tend to be more selfish than selfless in our relationships, there are certain acts that only typify how selfish one can be in a relationship.
These traits below only show that you are a selfish partner.
1. YOU CARE ABOUT YOURSELF THAN CERTAIN ASPECTS OF THE RELATIONSHIP
When you care more about yourself than the relationship, then that’s a sign of selfishness. Any partner who always tend to put self ahead of their relationship is a selfish partner. When it’s always “me” and “I” and never “we”, then there’s a problem.
2. YOU DON’T SHOW YOUR PARTNER HOW MUCH YOU CARE
A selfish person forgets that their partner has emotions and feelings and deserves to be loved and cared for. However, when you don’t show your partner love and you just live every day of your life without acknowledging that ‘special person’ in your life, then that’s a huge sign of selfishness.
