Walk away with your self-respect intact.
Here comes the celestial argument which has yet to be settled. Are men ever really worth fighting for? Or are relationships supposed to be natural and organic? It can be difficult to give a definitive answer to this question, but the key is in finding a correct balance. Yes, you should always fight for your man especially when you feel like he’s worth fighting for and the relationship is worth saving. However, you should never ever fight for a man to a point where you are degrading yourself and diminishing your self-worth. You still need to maintain a semblance of pride in your relationship, and you can’t ever allow a man to walk all over you. If that means having to put your relationship on hold, then perhaps it’s for the better. Here are a few reasons as to why you should never fight to keep a man in your life.
1. You can’t teach a lion to be a cat.
If your man was once a cheater, he’s always going to be a cheater. If your man was a woman beater, he’s always going to be a woman beater. The point here is that any mistake he may have committed in the past is a mistake that he is likely to commit once again. Make sure to always choose your battles wisely.
2. Love isn’t something that can be forced.
Sometimes, the love just fades away. The passion can wilt until it is no more. Nothing is ever promised, and you are entitled to absolutely nothing in the relationship. Just because he used to love you once upon a time doesn’t mean that he is going to love you for the rest of your life.
3. Giving up your pride will make people lose respect for you.
Never ever fight for a man to the point wherein you give up your sense of pride. Your man and your friends will end up losing respect for you. In the end, you might end up losing respect for yourself. You still need to carry yourself with utmost grace and tact. Be a person of strength and confidence, and don’t let a man walk all over you.
4. You’re in too deep in conflict and ill feelings.
Sometimes, in relationships, you can get yourself into holes that are too deep to recover from. Sometimes, words are said, or actions are done, and there’s just no way to get things back to normal. There are some fights that people just can’t fully recuperate from, and it’s best to just call it quits and move on.– Continue reading on the next page
