Respect is actually the building block of a healthy relationship !
You have to give it in order to get it .When two people respect each other they tend to support each other , they have unweaving trust for one another and they also value each others independence .Respect enhances your freedom to be yourself and to communicate freely with a honest mind . When there is mutual respect between lovers they respect each others boundaries and encourage one another to spend time with other friends and families .
They are also able to make decisions together easily and come to a satisfying compromise .
Showing respect does not only have to do with your actions but also with your words .Belittling your spouse with your words ,putting him or her down with unreasonable accusations are forms of verbal abuse and also emotional abuse as well ,these make your relationship very unhealthy .
Using abusive words ,getting overly jealous , ignoring them publicly or being too possessive by monitoring them everywhere they go also kills your relationship .
You’ve got to respect yourself ,feel good about the relationship and not feel pressured to do something to because others are actually doing it but because you have proven such actions to be the right thing to do .
You have to make a choice to respect your partner , yourself and also respect your relationship and also be aware that you deserve respect whether or not you are respected .
