Respect is very integral in a successful relationship. If you don’t feel that you are being given due respect, you are more likely to hold a grudge against your partner, which will not help matters in the long run. The first step towards winning the respect of your partner is to respect yourself. If you don’t have self-respect, there is no way in which anyone, let alone your partner, is going to respect you. You have to hold your own and make sure you show that you have a mind of your own. An independent mind never fails to attract people and you can see the respect in your partner’s eyes the moment you think in a more confident way.
Compromise and adjustments are necessary in a relationship, but to a certain extent only. If you keep sacrificing yourself without any rhyme or reason, there is no doubt that after a period of time, you’ll end up feeling like a doormat. Your partner will take you for granted, and that is the worst that can happen to a relationship. If you feel your dignity is being compromised, bring up the issue immediately and talk it out with your partner. A frank discussion can set to rest your apprehensions and sort out the matter appreciatively. You can also try to investigate why your partner does not respect you. Is it because of any financial reason? Is there any other issue?
Work on your confidence and thinking to get your due respect in a relationship. Similarly, make sure you respect your partner too. There are multiple reasons why you fell in love. Rediscover them and soon you’ll find that you have hit the refresh button in your relationship! Good luck!
