16. You Should Compromise On Inconveniences To Support Your Partner
A long-term relationship is great in so many ways, but all honest couples will tell you that at times, it’s also a huge pain.
There are going to be times when you’re inconvenienced, but to keep the relationship healthy, you’re going to have to suck it up and deal.
You might have to go and stand in the rain to watch your partner play football, or attend dinner at his family’s house even though you don’t like the food being served, or miss out on an event you want to go to because you already agreed to go somewhere with him. It goes both ways!
15. You Shouldn’t Compromise Feeling Safe And Comfortable
If there’s one thing that should be non-negotiable in any relationship, it’s the safety of both people involved. Relationships are challenging, but they should never have either person living in fear. We all have a right to feel safe and comfortable with our partners, so this isn’t something you should ever compromise, no matter how much you’re into the person you’re dating.
Your partner might help you emerge from your comfort zone in different ways that benefit you over the long run (think getting you to try a new food), but it should only happen with your consent. Always, always, always!
