Relationships: Does Your Partner Talk Down to you or Try to Squash you?

In the video above Dear Sybersue talks about “your” relationship. Is it balanced and healthy or does your partner belittle you and try to squash who you are as a person?

A partnership needs to be nurtured with encouragement & love! There is no place for negative comments or ridiculing in a relationship. One sided relationships need to be addressed and the communication between a couple should never be put on the back burner.

When you ignore the big red flags in your life you are not in alignment with yourself and your needs. Don’t let things go past the point of trying to repair your relationship. Sharing & reciprocating your feelings with your partner will at least give you some clarity on what is really going on with the two of you.

Don’t ever be afraid to have respect for yourself. Your relationship should be your safe place; free of drama, anxiety and negativity.

Do You Know Who Your “Real” Friends Are?

 

Friendships should be reciprocated for both men & women. Do you know who your real friends are? Are they there for you regardless of what is transpiring in your life or are they fair weather friends who just ride on your coat tails?  Women are great at forming their opinions on a man they are dating but sometimes neglect to have the same respect issues with their female friendships.

Occasionally in our lives we have to do a spring cleaning of  people, places & things that are not working anymore. It’s not a bad thing~ I look at it as a detox or cleanse of the soul. Many of us have been raised not to have expectations with people but I feel that is the reason we allow more one sided relationships into our lives than we should sometimes. If we don’t expect our partners, children or friends to reciprocate our kindness & love, how will we have a fulfilling relationship with them & them with us?

Children don’t respect parents who spoil them just as a lover doesn’t respect their partner when they are needy & weak. Love is a two way street where both people involved have equal time for each other. Unbalanced friendships always end up with someone falling off the teeter totter.

Friends come into your life for a reason, season or a lifetime.  Know who is there for the right reasons.
