Dating is fun but it is easy to lose yourself in the process. You can end up giving too much of yourself to your partner and completely forget to do you!
Keep the following in mind when it comes to dating:
- You’re responsible for own happiness
Of course your partner will contribute to your happiness, but it is not entirely their responsibility. Work on your relationship with yourself first before you seek contentment elsewhere.
- Don’t tolerate people who disrespect
Some people find pleasure in putting others down, so don’t allow it. If your partner hurts you emotionally, physically or sexually, don’t stay with them for the sake of being in a relationship.
- If they don’t see your worth, leave
If they don’t see how lucky they are to have you in their life, they are not worth your time. You deserve the best and to be valued as a person and a partner.
- Don’t change and don’t allow anyone to change you
Don’t change who you are for another person, unless you are on the path to self-improvement. Your beliefs, opinions, appearance and values may change over time, but this should be a natural process brought about through positive interaction with positive people.
- You are enough
Don’t ever let anybody tell you otherwise.
