A lot of us feel needy once in a while. Especially if we're down, don't feel well, or have a horrific hangover, feeling a little extra clingy every once in a while is totally normal. But if feeling needy in a relationship is your normal state, it can do do some serious damage. Not being able to make simple decisions without first asking your partner is another of being too needy. People need to have some space, and by taking away that space you are creating a toxic environment that generally pushes people away.
But here's the complicated part — it's totally understandable to need your partner, at least to some degree. Your relationship is based off of being an important part of each other's lives. So what's the difference between the normal leaning on your partner and being too needy? When does it go too far? Well, if you want the answers, you need to be pretty brutal about your behavior, its motivations, and even how your partner responds to it. Here are seven questions to ask yourself to find out if you're being too needy:.
Do you have other people in you life? Not just who you know, but who you actually go to, spend time with, even rely on? That's key. Also, if you give up your independence and abandon the things that used to make you happy, it will be reflected in your relationship. Make sure you have other people around who mean a lot to you. It's percent possible to be lonely in a relationship. Though it may be more beneficial when you're single. But when you're in a relationship, it's a little different — because it can lead you to be too clingy with your partner.
Take a look what you're expecting this relationship to be. If you want the relationship to be your whole world, then you're probably going to be too clingy. It's all relative. If you and your partner are equally needy, it may not be a healthy relationship, but it's not as complicated as if it's one-sided.
The really tricky thing is if you're constantly demanding more of your partner's time and attention, but they don't seem to need yours. So try to see if you and your partner are on the same level. Do you have any hobbies? Hobbies that don't involve your partner?
Even if it's as simple as going for a run, you need something. If you don't have it, get it. If you're really clingy with your partner and they feel uncomfortable, that can manifest physically. If you find them withdrawing or avoiding you, there's a chance that all of your neediness is pushing them away.
Give them some room to come to you — without pressuring them into it. Neediness, at its most extreme, can turn into some really irrational jealousy. And if you find yourself debilitatingly jealous and notice it has an effect on your relationship, you need to check your neediness levels.
The idea of breaking up with your ificant other might be devastating. But it shouldn't feel like the end of everything. If you feel like your world would end if you broke up, take a deep breath and figure out how to get some sense of self back. It's normal to rely on your partner and to feel a little needy from time to time, but being too needy in your relationship can lead to its breakdown. Make sure that you're honest about your actions and your motivations — it's the best way to keep your relationship strong.
