Master your half of the relationship
Ask yourself whether you wish to control your partner
If the answer is ‘yes,’ then you might want to reconsider your relationship. The perfect relationship exists when the partners accept each other the way they are, without having the need to introduce power-play in the relationship.
Think about what kind of a relationship you want
If you are aware of your desires and needs, it will become much easier to avoid entering into wrong relationships with partners who are not right for you.
If you feel that your relationship resembles a transaction, then you may want to reconsider your choice of partner.
