No two people are the same. Hence, it is normal in a relationship to compromise. But there is a limit to how much should you compromise. Many people simply do not know when it is the right time to say no and step back.
Here are some basic things that one should introspect about or look into while being in a relationship:
Never compromise on your self-respect
If a relationship forces you to value yourself less or respect yourself less then it is time you just get out of that association. The sooner you do it the better because there is no love and emotions in such a relationship after a while and eventually you end up being devastated and broken.
So when you find yourself losing self-esteem just stop compromising.
Are you losing independence?
When you enter into a relationship, you are full of dreams, expectations, hope, and positivity. But if over time you lose these things and just forget what you wanted from this relationship and surrender to all the wishes and dreams of your partner then it is time you wake up. Despite walking the same path hand in hand, it is important that you do not lose your independence.
Your opinions matter
It is not possible for two people to agree always. Differences will arise but you must always have a say in whatever decisions you take at your home. Your opinions and perspectives matter and should be given equal importance. When your partner starts snubbing your views and forcing his opinions on you, it is time to say no to compromise.
Never compromise on your values
Each person has some ethical and moral values that define his personality. Whenever you bend or twist these values you feel a sort of guilt and unhappiness inside and that can go a long way in making you a pessimist person. That is why never give up on your values or else you will end up being a person that you always hated.
Are you at peace inside your mind?
No one can be a better judge of your happiness and joy. So whenever you do something, your mind gives you a hint of whether it is right or wrong. Similarly, whenever you compromise under pressure, it disturbs the sanctity of your mind. So always check whether your mind is at peace and if not do not hesitate to step back and say no.
