There are certain people that are just so amazing that you want to respect them. You feel that they deserve all the respect in the world, but do you know why you feel that way? This is because that certain person knows how to earn respect and they earned your respect. Similarly, if you want your partner to respect you, you need to prove yourself. Yes, love means respect but if you are behaving like a horrible human being, then I wouldn’t expect anyone in their right mind to respect you. Here are a few ways to earn respect in a relationship:
5. Don’t act needy at all times.
If you want to earn respect, you need to stop being needy at all times. Having a partner means that you have someone to rely on in all forms. You can count on them emotionally, physically, sexually and sometimes, even financially. That’s okay, but if you will appear to be a constantly needy person who has never had enough, you will leave a horrible impression. Your partner would assume that they cannot act self-sufficient, it means that they are desperate. Some people have a hard time respecting a desperately needy person.
4. Don’t mold your principles.
If you have principles in life, you do not have to mold them all instances. If you want to earn respect, you have to seem like a reasonable person. We all have our boundaries and our rules and we like to follow them. However, sometimes, we tend to mound them a lot due to peer pressure or after being intimidated by someone. You have to appear like a strong willed person in front of your partner, if you want to earn their respect.
