5 THINGS YOU SHOULD NEVER SACRIFICE FOR A RELATIONSHIP
When you are in a true relationship that is balanced, you should never be required to change for companion/spouse to maintain the relationship; the person that God designed for you will accept you for who you are, flaws and all. Your divine mate would never ask you to change because the authentic, true-blue you would be perfect (imperfections and all). It goes without saying that all relationships require compromise, but none of them should ever require that you stop being “YOURSELF”. You are who you are for a reason, God’s designs are planned in his accord; be who you were designed to be without apology.
If someone does not bring value to your life and bring you happiness, then what is their reason for being in your life? If you partner disregards the things that bring you joy, brings sadness to what should be a joyful moment, occasion, and/or time, then the relationship is not only a waste of your time but bringing your value down. Relationships require water, sunshine, and positivity to grow and if your relationship doesn’t grow you, then you must break your connection – stagnancy is like dying – and you do not want to do that to yourself or others. You must love yourself more than that!
3. YOUR DREAMS.
In a semi-perfect life, a relationship consists of two individuals with the same purpose and mission – to support one another and grow each other while on the journey. Or it could be two people with different passions/dreams and encouraging each other to grow and achieve their goals/dreams. When you do not have a person that supports your dreams, aspirations and goals, the relationship will deteriorate for many reasons, but primarily because there is a need to support, encourage, uplift and cheer each other on. When you do not have anyone to support you or the relationship is unbalanced, it will not last. What you both one as a couple, makes up a large part of who you are, and you don’t need someone who undervalues or disregards your dreams/passions.
4. INNER PEACE.
Instead of feeling stressed, worried, emotional and bothered by your companion, you should feel a sense of peace and calmness. A relationship does not go without hiccups, but one that is filled with chaos will not last. Your companion should help cultivate your inner peace and joy – not sadness and pandemonium.
5. YOUR SPIRITUAL/RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.
When I think about spirituality/religious beliefs, this is one of the key factors of a successful relationship. A couple should be equally yoked, and one should not feel forced to practice a religion that they do not believe in. Imagine spending the rest of your life hiding your faith and religion to be in a relationship with someone, how unhappy will you be and how disloyal to your religion. No relationship is worth having if you must compromise your religion and faith. Your partner should enhance, teach, embrace and support your spiritual life, and prayerfully evolve together as you strengthen your relationship with God.
