We do some crazy things when we are in love. Don’t we?

We become so consumed by the love that we feel, to the point where we sometimes even forget what we want to say because we get lost in the moment.

But that same love can also make us blind to a lot of different things. We try to find ways to justify the behavior of our partner and we forgive too easily.

At the end of the day, we give so much of ourself away without noticing it until it is too late.

That’s why we all have to realize that, as women, we should never give up on certain things in our life simply to please someone else.

You will learn that no one is worthy of you giving up these things.

Your freedom

This is the most obvious one but you wouldn’t believe how many women I have come to meet who were completely devoted to their boyfriend to the point where they didn’t have their freedom anymore.

I am sure you just thought of one of your friends as well.

A man shouldn’t pressure you into thinking that a certain piece of clothing isn’t ‘allowed’ or that you can’t talk to your guy friends or co-workers who happen to be male.

You have the right to do whatever you want, as long as you are not hurting anyone. So don’t give up your freedom.

Your dreams

We all have dreams and wishes that we hope to one day make a reality. So why do we let ourself give up on them?

A man who truly loves you would never ask you to give up something you want to achieve or something you believe in.

If he really loves you, he will understand and respect you.

Your friends and family

Maybe this one goes without saying but never let a man convince you that you have to give up your family and friends because of him.

Those people should come before him on your scale of importance because they have been around for much longer than he has!

Those are the people who understand and love you unconditionally, and there is no man in this world who can ask something so stupid of you as to give up someone very important to you.

Your needs

Yes, it’s the truth. Women give themselves away too much in relationships and we are all aware of that.

Because of that fact, we have to realize that no one should have to sacrifice their own wants or needs to satisfy someone else.

For you to give up your own wants and needs means that you are in a relationship with a narcissist who only sees the relationship as a way to get whatever he wants.

You are way better than that!

Your morals

Everyone has their own moral code that we should stick to, no matter what! If your man is trying to make you give up yours, I would really reconsider your relationship.

What if you decided that you want to stay a virgin until marriage and you don’t want to be touched before then?

Why would you ever want to give up that moral code of yours for someone who isn’t even worthy of that one special moment?

Your happiness

Love can really make us blind, because we end up just seeing with our heart.

But what if your relationship is only toxic to you and all you have been doing is crying for days because of him?

It’s obviously not the relationship for you.

Don’t let yourself get stuck in an unhappy relationship just because it’s convenient.

Your power to make decisions

Don’t ever, and I really mean EVER, let your partner make decisions for you.

You are a strong, independent individual and you know what you want to achieve in life. If he wants to be a part of it then let him see that there is no way you are going to let him make all the decisions for you.

You should be able to always make decisions for yourself, no matter how close you and your partner are. But this doesn’t apply to decisions that involve the both of you!
