6. Your dreams and goals
You should never give up on your dreams for the sake of a relationship; if someone stands between you and your dreams it only shows how insecure they are. In happy relationships partners encourage each other to fulfill their dreams.

9. Your Identity- don’t morph into your partner too much and lose yourself in the process
In a relationship we try to become more and more like our partner their habits, interest and etc… there is nothing wrong with this process as this helps with the bonding process however, when one takes on too many characteristics of their partner they start to loose their own identity and stop making decisions on their own resulting in loosing their true identity.

10. Your decision-making power
As a couple we tend to loose the ability of making a decision on are own and choose to make all the decisions with the help of our partner. I agree that the important decisions should be made together however, the small day to day decisions can be done without the input of both parties. This way we get to keep some of our decision making independence without it having a negative effect on our relationship.
