Welcome to my life when I was with my ex. Once of the things that makes me cringe a bit these days. I was constantly trying way too hard to be Mr. Nice Guy instead of being me. In some ways, I was crossing the fine line between too agreeable and pushover. Definitely NOT the guy I was when we first started dating. Hell, I wasn't even like that in the first year of our relationship. I lost myself completely in the relationship. Completely didn't like the person I became... the more the days go by, the more I'm realizing the breakup was the best thing to happen to me.Years back, I suffered from the “nice guy” syndrome. I would be the guy that was over sweet because I wanted to be different rather than ordinary but in a good way. What I didn’t know is that my sweetness, like eating too many sweets, tends to always make you sick. UGH! What I was doing was not being who I was. Being sweet came naturally to me but to others, I was too nice, too sweet or too eager to please. In short, I pushed people away because I was too agreeable. I was not a pushover but I was too agreeable.
Live and learn, live and learn.
