How do you tell the difference between a rocky patch in a relationship and a relationship that just isn’t working? Everything may have seemed great at first but after a while the true colors will always come out. As things slide away from what you want, watch out for these tell tale signs of disrespect.
Communicate your concerns and needs with your partner. Approach them in a respectful and patient manner (even if they are not doing so).
If your partner consistently disrespects you and makes no effort to change for the better, then you should consider getting out.
You deserve someone who cares, someone who supports you and respects you. Respect is a cornerstone of compassion and love, without it positivity will not be nourished.
They Always Have To Have Everything Their Way
Compromise is a crucial element of any relationship, especially romantic ones. Compromise takes understanding and respect.
If they can’t acknowledge your needs then it shows how much they respect you. Bring to their attention your feelings and what they are doing.
It’s okay to struggle to express those needs, but you need to in order to keep the relationship alive. For some tools and professional advice on how to keep your relationship alive, click here and watch this free video from relationship expert, Amy North.
