Getting my self esteem back

I have been with gf for over a year and have lost my self esteem in the process. We have been through a lot and it has come down to almost our last thread. I have become clingy and needy and I hate myself for being that way. I feel I I have to have her around me all the time to make me feel at ease. I wasn't like this in the beginning but now things have changed. I would like to be able to stand on my own two feet again without worrying about her all the time. Things I used to do aren't not happening anymore. Can you possible give me some suggestions on getting your self esteem, individuality back? I don't want to push her away but I feel my behaviors are not making anything better b/w us. Thanks all

You might start doing some things on your own and develop some of your own interests and friends outside the relationship. Take a class, join a club, enroll in a sports league, etc. You need to develop a sense of yourself so you do not lose yourself completely in the relationship.

 

I don't think it is healthy for two people to spend ALL of their time together. That can be suffocating and can lead to a lot of boredom in the relationship. Get out there and be who you are meant to be.
