Even the healthiest of relationships have a demand for timely compromises and sacrifices. All successful relationships are built on the principle of given and take, but there is a limit to how much you can give in a relationship.
If you have to sacrifice any of the following things to save your relationship, then it’s time to reconsider a few things.
1. Your self-respect
Never compromise your self-respect and accept insults, verbal or physical abuse. You should feel emotionally and physically safe with your partner. They should not take away your dignity, your presence, your confidence.
2. Your happiness
If your relationship doesn’t make you happy, add value to your life, then what is the point of being in one? If your partner is making your life miserable, draining your energy and you are generally unsatisfied, then it’s not worth it.
Never compromise on your happiness.
3. Your privacy
It is crucial to be completely transparent and honest in your relationship, but that does not give your partner the right to go through all your text messages, sift through your mails, have all your passwords etc.
Your privacy should be respected.

4. Having a family
If you are the kind of person who wants to get married, settle down and have kids someday, then you should be very clear about this to your partner. You have every right to dream of having a family and your partner should not take that away from you.
5. Your ambition
A happy relationship is not defined by two people having the same goals, rather both partners should support and encourage each other towards their dreams, no matter how outrageous the idea might seem to be.
If you are passionate about something, then you should never give that up. Our passion drive us, motivate us and make us happy.
Your partner should always have your back.
