Relationships are very much ‘give and take.’ You cannot have a relationship when you are giving everything and you get nothing in return, it does not work that way.
There are some things that even in relationships we do not budge on and other things we are only willing to meet halfway when we are with the right person. Relationships need balance and compromise, without it they will never work properly.
If you are sacrificing too much for your relationship, is it really worth it? Do not be someone who gives his or her all to a person who doesn’t deserve them. Some people are not willing to put forth any effort and those people do not deserve the best parts of you.
10 Things You Should Never Give Up For Someone Who Isn’t Worth It:
1. Never give up your alone time.
Sometimes we need time alone and our partners should not be taking that away from us. Wanting to spend some time to yourself is normal, and there is nothing wrong with it. If your partner won’t give you the space you need then you might want to cut ties.
Your personal happiness matters! If you are putting your happiness at risk by being with someone or making them happy why are you doing it? Do not put other people’s needs before your own.
3. Never give up your friends and family.
You should never cut yourself off from your friends and family because your partner wants you to. If you want to cut out a toxic family member that’s fine, but don’t give anyone else control over this part of your life. If someone is isolating you, you need to stand up quickly.
4. Never give up your hobbies within reason.
Sure, taking a break from your hobbies or one of your hobbies is fine when necessary, but don’t give up the things you are passionate about. You should never be asked to stop doing something that makes you, you.
We all need to take care of ourselves in the ways that are unique to who we are. If your partner doesn’t want you to practice self-care or wants you to care more about his or her needs than your own you are wasting your time. You deserve so much better than that.
6. Never give up your sense of privacy.
Never let someone make you feel like privacy is not necessary. If you want a little privacy take it. You don’t have to be as much of an open book as he or she wants you to be.
7. Never give up your dreams.
Never let someone hold you back. If someone is holding you back from your dreams you should not be with them. We should all be with people who help us grow and help us work towards our dreams.
8. Never give up your independence.
If someone wants to completely take away your independence it should be seen as a red flag. You need to be able to function without this person. There is no point in giving up your freedom to someone who won’t pay enough attention to you as it is.
9. Never give up your control over your time.
Never let someone control the things you do or the things you say. You are your own person and you deserve to be in control of your life. The things you do are all up to you, you never have to do something you don’t want to do.
10. Never give up who you are.
Never let someone try to change you or turn you into someone you are not. We are supposed to grow within our relationships, but we aren’t supposed to give up who we are. Don’t let your partner rule your life.
