You might settle for a dry sandwich, even though you asked for mayo. You might settle for a nice, affordable car, even though you’ve been dreaming of a Lamborghini. Throughout your life, you’re bound to settle for a few things here and there. But your relationship shouldn’t be one of them. It’s important to know what you deserve, and to have the guts to walk away when you need to.
Here are six things everyone deserves in a relationship:
1. Mutual Trust And Respect
A healthy relationship requires mutual trust and respect. If your partner has a habit of ignoring your thoughts and opinions, poking fun at your dreams and goals or going through your phone when you’re not looking, it’s time to move on. Respect yourself enough to find someone who respects you, trusts you and treats you the way you should be treated.
You deserve to be happy! Too often we get stuck in monotonous relationships that are at a stand-still. We go through the motions day in and day out, and nothing changes. Don’t waste time in an unhappy relationship. Find someone who makes you laugh, lifts you up and brings you joy.
3. Safety And Security
You deserve to feel safe when you’re with your partner. When the two of you are together, you should feel comfortable enough to be vulnerable and to be the real you. You deserve to be with someone who comforts you, protects you and accepts you for who you are.
If you don’t feel passion in your relationship, your partner might as well be an acquaintance. You deserve romance and intimacy in your relationship. If the two of you have lost your spark, try to reignite it. If the passion is gone, be willing to move on. You deserve to share a close, passionate and intimate bond with your partner.
Whether your idea of adventure is white water rafting in the rapids or choosing a scary movie on date night, you deserve a little adventure in your life and in your relationship! You deserve a relationship full of surprises, new experiences and memorable moments.
6. Unconditional Love
You deserve someone who loves you and accepts you for who you are. Someone who embraces your quirks, celebrates your successes and stands by your side no matter what. You deserve a love that knows no boundaries, a love that gets stronger with each passing day. An unconditional type of love.
