Every relationship comes with a price tag, some are hard work, some need a lot of patience while some need sensitiveness. Gone are the days when people expect a relationship to be a fairy tale. Apart from the most obvious one, love, there are for sure some deal breakers which should pop up the alarm signs and make you take the a different way to life.
Respect If your partner isn’t giving you enough respect, then the relationship is probably not going to last. Respect is an utmost significant attribute you would want with your partner. It is going to be very difficult to be able to take it forward with someone who refuses to respect you – be it your ability or your emotions. It is way too important not only for the relationship but for you as an individual. It’s almost, no respect no love.
Happiness Being in the relationship should make you happy. Happiness sometimes is being able to do what you want, being able to wear what you want or simply hanging out with the people you want . When there is a point where you feel you are not happy and trying to work things out knowing your partner won’t change, it is probably time to do yourself a favour. People do change as they age gracefully and you do want to give them the benefit of doubt. But sometimes if that comfort isn’t there, that happiness isn’t there, it is time.
Being yourself To be yourself is something you will need to be irrespective of a relationship. And if a relationship for some reason isn’t allowing you to, then you really need to think. To be yourself is significant for your wellness and happiness. Even though you can put up with some change in the short term, for the relationship to last forever, you will need to be yourself.
Relationships are never simple. Every one of us are special and need to be made to feel that way and if a relationship is not doing that by not letting you be yourself, giving respect and allowing you to be happy, it sure is not worth your time.
