Being in a relationship is not what's important. Being with someone who values every bit of you is what matters most.
You may have thought that the most painful thing was losing someone you valued. But the truth is that losing your value in a relationship is even more painful. However, when you know your worth, you find the strength to move on from the relationships that made you feel trapped and worthless.
Even if it takes time, don't let yourself settle for anything less than what you deserve. Be with someone who gives you all this and more.
If you're in a relationship where your partner makes love feel like an effort, instead of something that comes easily and seems more natural, it's time to rethink the direction it's going in. If you're investing so much of yourself but getting nothing in return, it's not the love that you deserve. Love is meant to feel effortless and genuine. It's meant to make your heart feel the deepest of emotions and feel free when you're in a relationship.
Even if you have to wait, be with someone who gives you the spark and the passion that makes love what it is. But let that not be the only thing that makes you want to stay together. Because even when the honeymoon phase is over and the relationship matures, it is the respect you have for each other that will cement the bond.
A partner who truly loves you would never be able to imagine a life without you. And that makes them want to give you the best they can. They will give you a relationship where you feel secure, not just about the present but also about the possible future you have together. Find the one who wants to spend every day for the rest of their life with you, and they manage to give you reasons to smile every now and then.
You’re a person who brings so much to the table in a relationship and you deserve to get back in the same way that you give. So find that one person who is willing to stretch their world out so that they can make you a part of their world, as you do with yours, for them. Be with the person who treats your thoughts and feelings in the same way they would treat their own.
What is most special about you is the way you carry yourself with independence and pride. You know all that you’re worth and you don’t have to change yourself for anyone else. When you’re with a partner who truly loves you, they will cherish every bit of you and adore you just the way you are. But the moment they feel intimidated by your bold personality, they will either try to demean you and change you, or simply retreat, none of which will help the relationship grow. Find the one who isn't insecure about your independence and makes it worth all the time you put into the relationship.
No partner in the world can promise a relationship that has no fights. There are bound to be some rough days even in the most healthiest and happiest relationships. But you deserve to be with someone who will stick with you right by your side even when the going gets tough. They wouldn’t think of leaving you to clean up the mess alone. They would take responsibility in the relationship and do whatever they can with you to make things right.
You deserve to spend the rest of your life with some who will value your self-worth. They wouldn’t emotionally or physically manipulating you, or do anything that would threaten your self-esteem or your belief in yourself. Be with the one who gives you the simple joys of a relationship, who lets you enjoy peace of mind and would make you see just how irreplaceable your company is. That's when spending a lifetime by their side becomes all the more fulfilling.
