Many times when women are in a relationship, they put their boyfriends before themselves. They do what’s in their beaux’s best interest, but not their own.
Unless you’re engaged or married, you have to put yourself first!
In a relationship, you’re still two separate people with separate lives. While you try to be a part of each other’s lives, what’s in each person’s best interest may be very different.
For example, you may get a great job offer that could take your career to the next level.
However, because they job is in a different city or state, you may pass up on the opportunity in order to stay closer to your man.
While his best interest is for you to stay, your best interest is to leave and take the job. You’re best interest should take priority over his.
The truth is, you have to continue to pursue your dreams or what’s best for your career while you’re in a relationship. If you don’t, you’ll eventually regret these missed opportunities.
Will He Move With You?
If a man loves you and feels strongly enough about you, he will follow you wherever you go. If he doesn’t, then he won’t.
Now, there is an exception to this rule. If his career has no mobility or there isn’t a demand for his expertise in the new city, then moving may mean career suicide for him.
Perhaps his career is client-based and moving would mean starting over or changing careers altogether. This is definitely something that also has to be taken into consideration.
Stay True To Yourself
Unless there’s a ring on your finger, you’d be doing yourself a disservice to plan and live your life around a man.
It’s very important that you don’t lose sight of yourself while you’re in a relationship.
Always follow your dreams and do what’s in your best interest so that, at the end of the day, you won’t have to live with any regret over lost opportunities.
