In a healthy relationship, both the parties should put in equal effort in nurturing their bond but in some cases, one person ends up doing all the heavy lifting and ends up feeling underappreciated which is a classic sign that they are compromising too much and their efforts are not being valued so if you find yourself in such an equation, it’s probably time to pack up and leave. Below are five signs you are compromising on your self respect a little too much, watch out for these red flags when you are in love!
Your opinions have little value: “Are you tired of being interrupted mid-sentence?do they even ask you whether you are free before they make plans?when they don’t ask you for your opinion or even consider what you have to say, the sign is clear — they don’t respect you too much”.
They never go out of their way: “When was the last time they cancelled all their other plans just to meet you?never?but the last time they rang you up out of the blue, you ditched your relatives and ran out of a family function; too many of these instances and you have got yourself a real problem”.
You don’t support what they do: “So you are a left-of-centre liberal and they are far right but they run you down from time-to-time and make fun of what is sacred to you, it’s probably not worth it; it could be a political ideology or a way of life, if they don’t fit in with your belief system, you don’t have to make place for them in your life”.
You always feel rotten on the inside: “Sometimes, no matter how willing you may seem to make these compromises, somewhere it really hurts and if that feeling gets worse with every passing day, it’s a sign that you should probably leave the person; sure, it may hurt at first but it will save you a lot of heart ache in the days to come”.
