They've been with you since before Mr Right walked into your life. So, it's only obvious that you need to do the same for them. We get that a relationship can push your friends out of your life's focus, but that's something you need to hold on tight to. Figure out your priorities and find a way to balance your life, keeping both your friends and your better half happy.

2. Your Career

If you are forced to make a choice between choosing your man and career, we'd say pick career! Remember, your career will never wake up and tell you it doesn't love you any more. Ladies, not matter how cosy you've got in your relationship, there are just some things you should never let go of, and your career is one of them.

3. Your Pocketful of Sunshine

The only person who can make you happy is yourself. Most of us tend to buy into the illusion that we need someone to be there and make our day. But what if we could that ourselves? In short, you control your happiness, not someone else.

4. Your Personal Style

Just because he said he doesn’t want you to wear a mini skirt doesn’t mean you should go by his verdict. Tell him to keep his insecurities to himself - wear anything that makes you feel comfortable and is "you". If you still need a little more convincing, read point no 3 again!

5. Your Set of Hobbies

Your partner has an issue with you singing, dancing, collecting stamps? Don’t stress, that’s his problem. You may love him and want to keep him happy at all times, but sometimes you have to make time for yourself. Do the things that you like and what you want to pursue. Only if you’re happy can you put a smile on someone else's face.

6. Your Personal Space

There will be times when the two of you can’t get enough of each other, and there will be times when both of you will get tired of each other. That’s when personal space comes into the picture. You need it, he needs it. Learn to respect each other’s space, and trust us, the bond between the two of you will improve for the best.

Now that you know the things you should never give up for your partner, balance and prioritize things to make your relationship and your life a tad easier. Best of luck, ladies!
