Am I able to be myself with this person? Do I feel accepted by them?



Are they critical or judgmental of me?



Does the relationship provide an even give-and-take exchange of energy?



Do I feel upbeat and energized when I'm around this person, or depleted and drained?



Does this person share my values? My level of integrity?



Is this person committed to our relationship?



Can this person celebrate my success?



Do I feel good about myself when I'm with this person?

Am I able to be myself with this person? Do I feel accepted by them? I feel brushed off and ignored a lot of the time.

Are they critical or judgmental of me? Use to be a lot more, but is getting better about that.

Does the relationship provide an even give-and-take exchange of energy? I am definitely the one who has to be the strong one to get through difficulties. It's so draining for me because I am constantly picking him up, encouraging him, forgiving him, and receive so little back.

Do I feel upbeat and energized when I'm around this person, or depleted and drained? Drained.... my mood goes down hill and have a "walking on eggshells" feeling inside me when I am around him most of the time.

Does this person share my values? My level of integrity? Definitely not. He lies, he blames others, he talks badly about others, doesn't really believe in God, no faith...

Is this person committed to our relationship? He isn't going

Can this person celebrate my success? He's happy when I do something successful and let's me know.

Do I feel good about myself when I'm with this person? I feel good about myself regardless of anyone.
