Never Give Up On Love

You might be here because you feel like you have been hurt so many times in a relationship that you just want to give up on love. Well, I’m here to let you know that you can have an amazing and loving relationship once you understand yourself better. I would love to help you with the process of attracting the love of your life as long as you never give up on love.

Now I know that this may be hard to swallow at first because we always like to blame the other person, but you are responsible for how the other person treats you in a relationship. For example, if a partner is nasty to you or says and does things which you really don't like without you saying or doing anything about it, then you need to have the power to walk away. So by you not doing or saying anything, means the other person will have permission to keep doing what they are doing.

You will even get a sign as early as in the beginning of the relationship which will be something they do or say that didn't feel right. This is when you need to say something, when they first do it to show them that it's not acceptable to you. Now when you do get back into a relationship, you need to get good at looking for those signs of what feels good and what doesn't.

But before you think about a relationship again, you need to think about yourself and what you really want. So have a good think of what you really want in a relationship and write it down. This is going to be a list that you refer to often so that you never settle in a relationship that doesn’t feel good. Think about happy and successful long term relationships.

What do you like about them?

What parts of it do you wish you had in your relationship?

Thinking back to ex partners, what parts of that relationship did you like and not like? Whatever you didn't like, write down the opposite.

What made you give up on love in the first place? Write down the opposite of that too.

I would like you to make a decision right now to never give up on love. You will also never settle in an unfulfilling relationship again too.

Now you have your list, let’s look at you. Do you change when you’re in a relationship just to please the other person so they won’t leave.

Do you have confidence in yourself to stand up to the other person when they say something that you don’t like or agree with?

Do you love yourself enough to just be yourself? The right partner for you will absolutely love that you can just be yourself.

I used to be like that in relationships, remaining quiet and appearing strong and independent so that I wouldn’t upset the guy. Keeping my opinions to myself in case he didn’t like what I had to say and would leave. But he would leave anyway and I would get upset thinking there is something wrong with me. But now, I can be silly, playful and laugh a lot at myself and my partner loves that about me. Mainly because he is the same and it was like a relief to him to find someone who could be silly too.

Despite having many unsuccessful relationships in the past where I was hurt often, desperate to try and get the guy to love me, I still decided to never give up on love. I decided to believe that the right partner for me was out there waiting for me and for me to let go of the ones that hurt me which I would continue obsessing about so much. I had to be patient and learn to love and accept myself so much first. I had to love my life and find happiness in doing things I enjoyed. I followed my interests and passions. Because even when you do find that amazing love of your life, you will still need to be happy with the other parts of your life too. So please, for the sake of the amazing person out there waiting for someone exactly like you, never give up on love.
