    The "Mami "
    You remember your colleagues' birthdays, jump in when they're running behind, and even volunteer to fix their slip-ups. In fact, you're so busy helping others with their work that your own projects are languishing. "It's alright to help your co-workers, but it's not okay for you to become a caretaker," explains psychologist Mildred Borras, who counsels people on personal and career matters. "If you're helping someone, make sure to set boundaries. You don't want to make this a habit because, eventually, you'll make your co-workers dependent on you and set yourself up to feel angry, resentful and victimized." Instead, Dr. Borras says, collaborate with your peers on projects and keep your volunteerism in check.

    1. You Keep Looking For More Evidence
    If you're spending your relationship feeling insecure a majority of the time, that's a bad sign.

The problem with this is that we usually look for obvious things, like whether he's disrespectful or a cheater, but we disregard smaller, subtle signs. "This is a trap, because we excuse the little things and tell ourselves we need more evidence, something bigger," Maddox says. We then become involved in a

  • How to Fight with Your Boyfriend

    Cosmo LatinaWe all fight in relationships, but did you know there's actually a right way to do it? These tips will actually make your relationship stronger after an argument. By Anita Alma

    Ditch These Words

    "We need to talk." Nothing good usually follows that sentence, especially if you say it with major attitude. It will immediately put him on edge. Instead, start by letting him know you want to discuss "X" because of the way it made you feel.

  • How to Break Up with Your Ex's Family

    CosmopolitanCosmopolitanSplitting up with an ex is hard, but leaving his family might be harder. Here's how to cut the cord for good, without the hard feelings.

    By Sofia Quintero

    1. Cut the cord
    "Cut all communication-calls, email, texting, everything!-for a few weeks," psychologist Dr. Melissa Laracuenta says. "You need time to determine what you want and need without them in your ear." But Lisa, an educator from Los Angeles, says giving family members a heads-up helps. "I disappeared from their lives totally for a couple of months," she says of leaving her beau- and his family-of four years. "This affected his mom, and him, pretty badly."
