Self- Worth

 

 

As humans, we all need love. We crave intimacy and comfort. We need a shoulder to lean on in the dark days and in the stormy nights. We need someone to consider a confidant, a friend, a helper, a lover, and a better half.

 

But what if this bond with another person is not as strong as we think?  What if we live unfulfilled, and the person we love is unworthy of our devotion?  What if we know the core of the problems that affect our bond, but we lack the courage or the knowledge to fix it?  What if we are afraid to move forward alone? What if we feel entitled to stay, and we suffer silently inside?

 

As we grow, we gain wisdom. By committing mistakes, we build experience. And finally, we discover how meaningful life can be.

We have to know that a solid relationship needs more than love; it requires mutual respect, understanding, and loyalty to remain healthy. A relationship is doomed without any of these essentials.

 

We should be more cautious of how a relationship will progress by learning about our partner.

 

We all should know that by mutual respect and support, a trusting relationship will develop. To keep a relationship alive, we have to master how to communicate, how to show admiration and love for one another, and how to avoid shutting down emotionally.

 

Since no relationship can survive on its own, intimacy will triumph through emotional support and love. But if we feel oppressed, depressed, ignored, and shut down in a relationship, we must depend on our self-esteem and self-worth. We must be courageous enough to move forward in life without fear of the future.
