My relationship is affecting my studies and work and I’m not sure what to do.
I think it might be emotionally abusive but I’m not sure because at the moment things feel really good. But I hate the uncertainty and the way it makes me feel when it’s not all good. I know every relationship has ups and downs but this is more than that.
So anyway, I’ve always been fairly driven in academics and careers, but right now I’m struggling so much with motivation and with finding the time. My partner is trying to get involved in my work and studies too and I don’t want him to.
So the main question I’m having here is:
I’m really struggling to separate my work/study self and emotions from my home/relationship self and emotions. I keep bringing the relationship emotions with me to work, and then the work ones back home until I no longer feel happy or quite present at either.
I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for setting internal boundaries and keeping the two more separate?
