Every relationship has its ups and downs, and as you and your partner grow and experience those ups and downs together, you might find that you're changing and evolving, too. Being in love is amazing, and being in a supportive relationship can be even better because it can truly set you up to be your best self. If you're feeling really secure in your relationship, you might notice a few amazing new things about yourself. You were amazing before you got into your relationship, but being someone's partner can affect your moods, your emotions, and your actions in really positive ways.
Of course, relationship rough patches can negatively affect your heart and mind, but when you're standing on solid ground in your relationship, you're probably feeling pretty secure about other areas of your life, too. A lot of being a good, supportive partner is paying attention to your SO's emotions and needs, and being available to them when they need you. But maintaining your own identity and independence can make a partnership even stronger, so it's good to be mindful and aware of not only how your relationship is affecting your partner, but how it's affecting you. I spoke to Tyler Turk, CEO and Founder of Crafted With Love, about three things you might notice about yourself if you're in a relationship that has you feeling secure.
