Never compromise on your self-respect for any given reason. Life will repeatedly try to teach you the same lesson over and over again until learn. Love is a very strong feeling, and it requires mutual respect. But you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your self-respect to keep someone in your life. We’re all independent, we’re all capable of making things work but not at the cost of yourself-respect. Once you give someone the upper hand you’ll be trapped in a cycle. Whenever you’d fight or have an argument you’ll simply let them lash out at you. Your submissive behaviour will destroy you from within. Love makes you vulnerable, it makes you feel so dependent on your partner that you wouldn’t imagine life without them. But the dependency isn’t the problem.

We’re all a little dependent on the people we love. A relationship turns toxic for a person when they’re constantly being put down by their partner. It changes the way they look at themselves. When you let someone dominate you like this you begin to get frustrated due to your lack of power. Soon you wouldn’t have a say in any given matter. Someone you love dearly might be the reason you’re compromising on yourself-respect. You’ve got to speak up. You’ve got to tell them that you will not let them mistreat you this way. If you fail to do this for yourself it’ll all be downhill from there on. Hold on to your pride and honor. Nobody is worth letting yourself down. True love will always make you feel like you’re special and the right person will give you the respect you deserve. The following are quotes by famous personalities:“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection”

–Lucille Ball

“Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one.”

“If only you could sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.”
