The more chances you give to someone who hurts you, the less respect they will have for you

Stop giving people chances to hurt you.

The more chances you give to someone who hurts you, the less respect they will start to have for you. Some people don’t know what it means to respect others.

The more chances you give to a man who disrespects you, the more he will continue to treat you like crap because he feels you don’t have a choice but to stick with him and continue putting up with his unending abuse.

If you don’t value yourself in relationships with other people, they will start to take you for granted. They will continue to cross their boundaries with you. They will continue to take advantage of your forgiveness.

They won’t be afraid to lose you because they feel you will never walk away from them and that you are comfortable with being disrespected. This is because you have made them comfortable as they disrespect you.

You need to stand up for yourself and say no to all kinds of maltreatment and abuse in your relationships. Do it for yourself. You don’t have to be anybody’s doormat or dumping ground for bad behavior.


Stop giving people chances to hurt you.


Stop chasing people. Stop begging them to stay in your life. Know you are worth much more. Pay attention to how the people in your life treat you.

Preserve your energy for those who truly love and respect you. Spend time with people who have your best interests at heart. Cultivate relationships with people who respect your personal boundaries.

You shouldn’t give up who you are and what you stand for because you want to keep toxic relationships. Don’t do that! You are hurting yourself. If they can’t treat you with respect, they don’t deserve to be in your life.

Whenever I hear women make excuses for parents, siblings, family members, friends, colleagues and acquaintances who treat them badly, I pity them.

I pity them because it’s not easy to continue putting up with disrespectful people because they don’t want to lose them. It’s a terrible place to be in. I wish these women would grow some balls and keep these people where they actually belong -far from them.

Stop giving chances to people to hurt you and get away with it. Love yourself more!
