Relationship support

Sunday, June 16, 2013

There is something that I have dreamed of doing since I was four years old, maybe even before I was four but I can only remember as far back as four years old. I told my significant other about it and there just doesn't seem to be any support. It just doesn't seem fair when I support them in everything they want to do and I help them sift through all the details so they can put their dreams and desires into action. I wonder now if my significant other is part of why I have such a hard time getting my shape and fitness back. I know that it is ultimately up to me, but I just feel like they are a jumbo jet strapped to me and making it harder to reach my goals. Yesterday I finally decided that if I am worth it they will support my choices and that if they trust me then they know that I will always come back home, my dream job will require lots of traveling off and on. So, should I get in to do this dream job I hope that they support me.

Does anyone else feel like they have this sort of an issue too?

    i think this is a woman's issue, mostly because i never hear a man complain he's not getting the support he wants. i have found that you get what you ask for. if you don't demand support and respect, you won't get it. it's not that they don't think you need it, it's that they just don't think. do what you need to do for yourself and put yourself first, because nobody is going to do it for you.

    My husband was never supportive of me losing weight since he told me once when he was mad "Well, when you lose weight your B##bs so first." Right. That was all he cared about and the reason he NEVER said anything when I was fat. Sorry, I don't want to ruin my health over his need for "play things." Maybe that is the reason you aren't getting support, so do this for YOU.

    I'm sure it will just take a little more convincing to get them on side.

    In the past I found that I didn't do well when I wasn't supported at home. I explained this to my husband and got him on board. Now that he is, everything is easier for me.
