Hello there! My name is Julie and I am from Julie-writes.com I and Olivia decided to collaborate and write about different yet important aspects of a relationship. Make sure that you read both of our blog posts. My blog currently features posts on love & relationships, healthy habits and mental health.
Sweetening our selves for some other person’s taste can often be tempting, especially when we are romantically interested in them. And sometimes, we fall in love so hard, that we start overlooking our emotional and physical needs. To love someone unconditionally, we need to love ourselves unconditionally too. Here are some significant ways to love yourself equally in a relationship.
HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS HAVE HEALTHY BOUNDARIES
This may sound like an obvious point but there are many people out there who are in the dire need to follow this. It is important that each of us, whether a teen or an old person, start training ourselves to set boundaries. We can do this by communicating what we feel and avoiding bottling up our emotions. It may seem daunting at first, but it is important to let people know when you feel hurt or offended.
There are 7 billion people on this Earth, how can someone know what ticks you off and what doesn’t?
LOVE YOURSELF INSIDE OUT
Some of us often have a great bubble, only until we step out and call ourselves Ugly before a mirror. We need to realize that every time we self-sabotage ourselves by, we are harming our mind. It may seem like a trivial thing but self-sabotaging habits make us repulsive in the long-run. We become so used to stepping into an I-know-this-is-not-good-for-me situation (I’m specifically talking about emotionally and physically abusive relationships here) that we start considering it as normal.
Always remember that by being silent you are paving a way for the evil.
KNOW WHEN TO LEAVE
‘Knowing when to leave a party and a relationship is important’. Leaving the person you love can be one of the most difficult yet important decision.
What we need to understand is that leaving a person does not mean, un-loving them. Though the intensity or the strength of the love may change, Moving on does not mean that you stop loving that person.
