Stage 5 Clinger
Stage 5 clinger is a millennial term that has been coined to describe someone who is too needy and of course, clingy, in a relationship. Lately I have been wondering what is the cause of this? Why is there that constant need of someone's presence? Then I began to wonder, is it because we are so uncomfortable being alone with ourselves that we constantly need that significate other there? Do we not like ourselves enough for our self? Or maybe, we need the reassurance that they give us. We constantly need someone there telling us how beautiful we are. We constantly need someone telling us that they love us and how wonderful we are. How sad is it to know, that maybe we don't know this for ourselves. How sad is it to feel like that if we let that person leave or go out, that they may find something better and not turn. Are we truly that easily replaceable? Once we understand the value we hold in this world and how truly special we are, whether someone tells us or not, how wonderful things will be. It will not be that huge of an issue if our significate other wants to go out, because we understand that what is at home is more valuable than anything they may run into. It will not be such a huge deal if you do not get that text back in 30 seconds. They are busy, just as you should be too. Do we really want someone who is so free, that they can have their phones in their hand 24hrs a day? Do we really want to be that free that we notice? When you have things going for yourself on your own, you tend to not make a mountain out of a mole hill. I feel like being my own person is the best quality that I will bring into any relationship that I find myself in. And my significate other letting me be my own person will be my favorite quality about them.
