I am into defining relationships. Not because I necessarily believe in the whole notion that you “need to have a title to have a relationship” (because I don’t think that’s necessary). I like to define relationships because it allows for boundaries. You are able to control certain aspects of each relationship, such as what is acceptable and not acceptable. Remember that you can only control your actions and your responses to others actions. Once you have defined these along with the other person, things get less complicated. People have a tendency to make life more complicated than it needs to be. Communication is key and as long as you communicate successfully, that’s all you can do. You are allowing yourself to give part of you to them, while expecting them to do the same (which you have every right to think that way). If you are not getting out of the relationship that you want, leave. It’s always for the best.
