5 Signs You're In A Relationship With An Incredibly Selfish Person

All humans are selfish in some way. But when does it get to be too much? Selfishness in a relationship is never a good thing and is especially toxic if it's extreme.

It can be exhausting to keep a healthy relationship going with someone who is too selfish and wrapped up in themselves.

No relationship can survive if it is one-sided.

So, if you find yourself doing all the work and putting in all the effort your relationship requires without getting anything in return, perhaps your partner is too selfish and it's time to call it quits.

Below are 5 signs that your partner is too incredibly selfish to be in a relationship with.

1. They are controlling and have too many rules

Does your partner have rules regarding what you can and can't do? Do you feel stifled by them?

Only an incredibly selfish person would try to control his/her partner and dictate what you do on a daily basis.

Don't waste your time and effort on someone who is so selfish that they don't allow you to be yourself.

2. Your partner never goes out of his/her way for you

If everything is always about them and never about you, how will there will never be a balance in your relationship.

A selfish person wants people to do things for them, but will never do anything for others unless it benefits them somehow.

If your partner never puts forth any effort or never does nice things for you "just because," you can be assured they are immensely selfish at heart.

3. They never take the time to listen to you

Conversations are about sharing thoughts and feelings. If one partner dominates the conversation, then it isn't a balanced conversation.

If your partner cares about you, he/she will be interested in your opinions and thoughts. A selfish person will only care about his/her own.

4. It's all about them…ALWAYS

Your happiness should matter to your partner just as much as, or more than, theirs.

If your partner doesn't ever consider what you want or need, it's time to move on. They will never consider you or your happiness to be a priority.

5. They never ask you about your day

If your partner never asks about your day, you should consider that to be a red flag. It can make you feel like he/she doesn't care about you or what is happening in your life.

This one-sided dynamic can make you very unhappy. You deserve to be with someone who not only asks about your day, but actively listens to you, even if what you say is mostly complaining.

Man Buys Stranger's Groceries When Overhearing Her Tell Her Daughter They Can't Afford To Eat That Night

Kindness is within us all

A man has recently been getting attention online for his inspiring act. One night, while he was minding his own business, he was confronted with a family in need. He had two options. He could have done the same thing everyone else did in the store and let them figure it out for themselves, or he could be their hero that day and help them out within his means.

The thing is, the man didn't have much money himself, and he was working two jobs to support himself and his kid. Here's how he decided on what to do.

Meet Bear, A Man Who Works Double Shifts To Live

It was a day like most for Bear, as he had just pulled two fourteen-hour shifts in a row and needed some food, but had no energy left to make it. He writes this on a post on Facebook and explains that this actually didn't turn out to be like most days: I stopped by the grocery store to grab food for dinner and as I was checking out a woman started crying in the next checkout line."

Bear listened in on the conversation between a mother and her daughter, and it was heartbreaking.

The Little Girl Asked Her Mom Why She Was Crying

At first, it's easy to assume the mom is just having a bad day, maybe she got into a fight with her husband or is tired from looking after her kid. As he listened in, ge overheard the girl ask her mom what was wrong, as she continued to stand crying in the lane right next to hers.

"Her daughter asked her what's wrong and she all she could say was, 'we can't afford to eat tonight.''" These are the words that no parent wants to imagine ever needing to say to their child, who depends on them just to live. Yet, it is the unfortunate case for many.

Food Insecurity Is A Real Problem

Food insecurity is a problem for many families across the country. This problem has gotten even worse with the pandemic as many families who relied on their small businesses had to shut down and couldn't make do anymore.

Even then, this problem existed before the pandemic and still continues today. In fact, the U.S Department of Agriculture reports that 10.5 percent (13.8 million) of U.S. households were food insecure at some time during 2020 and this number is unchanged from 2019.

This Time It Would Be Different

For a lot of food-insecure families, they simply would have had to walk out of that grocery store empty-handed, with a kid possibly going to bed hungry that night. For this mom, kindness was in the cards, At first, another person who also overheard her gave them a few dollars towards their groceries.

But Bear knew she needed more than that. He walked over to the mom and her daughter and told them he would pay for their food and to get whatever they want. He writes on Facebook: "A person behind her gave her a couple of dollars and she bought her daughter a Kids Cuisine TV dinner. I told her to grab what she wants, I'll pay for it."

All In Divine Timing

Was Bear's presence in that mothert's life at that time and place just a coincidence? Bear doesn't think so. He explains that he never actually shops at that store but for whatever reason, he felt inclined to do so that night. He think the reason for it comes down to divine timing…

"I NEVER stop at this Walmart. I'm simply saying GOD puts you where he needs you to be WHEN he needs you to be there"

People Find Bear Inspiring

Bear's Facebook post has gotten a lot of attention as many who read it are inspired by his selfless act. For all he knows, he could have saved that family that night.

"That's my little Brother doing what moms told us to do when women and children are in need, we help them out with whatever they need. GOD put you in the right place last night. Thanks for helping a woman and her children with the food they need to eat so they don't go hungry. God's got you," a person commented.

Whether it was a divine intervention or simply the actions of a kind man, it brought good into the world and we only hope things like this continue to happen to make it a better place.
