Love makes it hard, but it is not worth it if you are being abused in any way.
If you are not safe then how can you possibly be happy?
The way you affect other people with your presence is massively important in how successful you are going to be with women, and other people in general.
Love is not a justification for disrespect or abuse.
Partners must be respectful of each other and who they are for a healthy relationship to grow.
Regardless of sounding like a cliché, love can be binding especially when it comes to self-worth.
No amount of love is worth giving up who you are and the respect you deserve.
You are not a mother or a nurse or a maid (although you may play these roles occasionally), you are an equal partner in the relationship and if you are not being treated as such then that is an issue.
You both are individuals who need to come together as a team to maintain an equal playing field.
Some couples eat, sleep, breathe and live together - and that is okay!
However, it is important to have individual time and space away from your significant other every now and again.
Trust is one of the most important factors in a relationship.
If you don't trust the person you are with, then it is probably not a healthy, stable relationship and you most likely feel insecure about it.
You need it to solve conflicts and you even need it when it comes to intimacy.
