Im just wondering how powerful one's subconscious is. I met the most wonderful guy last year and 3 weeks into the relationship he told me that he never had money and probably never will. It didnt matter to me (at the time) because I can take care of myself and I told him that. As the relationship went by and he kept on telling me that he didnt have money for various things, he also moved in with me and couldnt pay the rent on time, I dont know if this money thing started to effect me. I changed and became very difficult. I found fault with everything he did and said, I had zero sex drive, I couldnt sleep, my hair was falling out, I put on weight, etc He eventually said that we were incompatible and broke up with me.

What I am asking is that can your subconscious be so powerful that it changes you into a totally different person? Can money be such a problem that it could effect you this way?

Not to have much money at a specific time is unfortunate, but not inevitable. But to announce that he "probably never will" sounds like a truly lazy guy with no ambitions except to sponge off others, like you. Does one need an unconscious to explain the fact that you gradually grew intolerant of this parasite, and reacted increasingly angrily to his using you and his excuses ? That was rather a rational response. And you haven't changed into any different type of person, just the same sensible person reacting to a leech.
