They Calculate The Level Of Respect To Give You

5 Signs Your Partner Has No Respect For You

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.

Your Partner Makes No Effort To Be Nice

Through love and respect, even the hardest truths can be expressed kindly and productively.

If your partner makes no effort to be supportive or kind then it shows exactly how much they love you. If someone truly loves another person, they make a sincere effort to make them feel great and treat them with compassion.

They Disrespect Your Friends Or Family

The other people in your life are there for a reason or because they are your family. These people are the core of your life and support.

Your partner should be trying to integrate with them as they are a part of your life. They don't have to best friends with everyone you like, but disrespect towards them, is equivalent to disrespect to you.

Your Partner Is Very Critical And Judgmental Of You

Nothing is good enough and they don't appreciate or acknowledge your efforts. They are constantly bringing up mistakes or flaws, not forgiving or forgetting.

These actions aren't conducive towards a productive and long lasting relationship.

It's OK if they get mad because mistakes happen, or point out something you could be doing better, but it should be done in the interest of improvement, not belittlement.

They Refuse To Listen

When you speak, do they listen to what you're saying? Do they participate in the conversation adding their own perspective and thoughts?

Or are they simply waiting for the conversation to be over so they can do something else or talk about their interests.

Being open and present with our partner is one of the greatest gifts we can give. Refusing to do this consistently, without a doubt means they don't truly love and respect you.

Not Every Friend Request Is A Friend Request

5 Ways To Recognize True And False Friends

People come into and leave our lives for a myriad of reasons. Some will become lifelong friends while others will remain acquaintances.

Some will just be "work buddies," while others will be your friend outside of work as well. Some will improve our life for the better and others will leave us feeling hurt and betrayed.

It can sometimes be difficult to spot a real friend from a toxic one until it's too late, and you wind up having a horrible experience.

So, how can you tell the difference sooner rather than later? Below are 5 ways to tell the difference between a true friend and a toxic one.

1. They keep in touch

Fake friends will only call you when they need, or want, something.

Real friends will contact you wherever and whenever because they are actually interested in what's going on in your life. They call to tell you a funny story that just happened or share an exciting experience.

They call because they just want to hear your voice. If you only hear from someone when they want something from you, it's a sure sign that they aren't a true friend and are just using you.

2. They keep your secrets

A true friend would never betray you by telling someone your secrets. Fake friends will treat your secrets like it's nothing sacred.

Right after they promise you they won't tell a soul, they'll be telling everyone they know. A real friend values your confidence, and will not tell anyone a secret you've trusted them with.

3. They make time for you

It doesn't matter if they only have an hour between work and their yoga class, a real friend will talk to you whenever you call.

Even if it's been a hectic day, a true friend let you come over for a drink if they need to talk.

They love you and want to spend time with you. So, they will make time for you no matter how busy their life is.

4. You don't have to impress them

It doesn't matter if your house is a mess or you are a mess. You know you can be your true self with a real friend.

If you have to clean your house, put on nice clothes and be in full makeup to avoid nasty remarks or looks of disapproval, then that person is not a true friend.

5. They always support you

A real best friend will encourage you with anything that you try!

Whether it's deciding to take an art class when they know you have no artistic abilities, or changing your career path, a real friend will be there every step of the way.

And, if you fail, a true friend will be the first person there to help build you back up.
