Inside us all there’s a person who yearns for respect, love and a feeling of being wanted. What a beautiful world it’ll be if we all treated each other with respect, courtesy and made everyone feel wanted??? ~Latika Teotia
At times we feel let down in relationships when we don’t get what we expect. This could be because of two reasons. One, we don’t let the other person know what we expect. We may be more than perfect in our behaviour by being sensitive towards other persons, never doing anything that might hurt them or make them feel humiliated. We go the extra distance to make others comfortable in every sense.
In return, we expect them to behave likewise. The trouble starts when they don’t. We start burning inwards, start holding grudges and with the passage of time we make things worse for ourselves. All this while, the other person/s are not even aware of what we perceive to be unjust behaviour. The sensible thing to do is make the others aware of what we expect from them; sensitize them towards our feelings so that they behave with us the way we want them to. Second, there are people who are rude and crude by nature. Either drop them or be firm about what we expect from them. Make it crystal clear to them that either they mend their ways or they are out.
Remember, only you can love yourself and ensure that others respect you. ~Latika Teotia
Don’t get tied down to something or someone when you know that it’s over; learn to let go and move on. There’s no point in wasting energy on someone who has decided to find happiness elsewhere. A crack has developed in the mirror of relationship and no matter what glue you use it’s not going to be the same again. Remember that you are strong, brave and beautiful so be bold enough to walk away. For every person who doesn’t value you there are scores of others who appreciate and admire you; they would be honoured to be a part of your life. ~Latika Teotia
If you get influenced by opinions and criticisms of others and start living accordingly then you have somewhere lost your identity. Though you may achieve a lot of success, appreciation and temporary happiness but it won’t last a long time; your soul will demand to be its original self. Don’t you think it’s better to live according to your own values and beliefs rather than being a copy paste or live a life what others want you to? It may not look that appealing from outside but it won’t haunt your soul. Yes you can work doubly hard to make an improvement and be what you admire. So be the best of yourself and always live according to your values and beliefs. ~Latika Teotia
While loving and caring for someone, don’t lose your own identity. The strongest relationship should be with your own self. Losing your precious relationship does hurt a lot, but that should not make you lose yourself. Self love and self esteem should not be lost at the altar of loving others. If you feel that while making a relationship work, you are losing yourself and hurting your soul then a good decision would be to walk out. That doesn’t make you an escapist but defines you as a wise, self loving and self respecting person. ~Latika Teotia
You are here to live your purpose not to please others. If they truly respect you they will respect your choices too. ~Latika Teotia
I give respect and reciprocate with enthusiasm to anyone who is nice, kind and respectful towards me. I appreciate the presence of people in my life but, if someone doesn’t value mine, then I find no reason to explain my absence to them. ~Latika Teotia
None of us is perfect, yet some of us seek perfection in others and that is the root cause of broken relationships as well as misery. We should rather focus on making relationship perfect by filling it with love, understanding and mutual respect. Like it is said that soul mates are not met they are made.
Don’t ever allow the fear of losing a relationship cause you to submit to being controlled or manipulated. Any relationship worth having must be one of “Mutual Love, Respect & Understanding”. Don’t give in! You are “well-able”. Don’t let anyone play upon your supposed “weaknesses” God has given you wisdom to run your own life. So, you don’t really need anyone constantly telling you what to do and what not to do. Know Your Worth !!! ~Latika Teotia
Woman is God’s gift to mankind. She gives the greatest treasure- children- and completes the family. Without her, man is incomplete. So, even if a relationship doesn’t work out, the least that a man can do is to show respect to her who gave him the children. It will also give the children a sense of security as well as belongingness; because the parents may have broken their relationship and moved on, the children haven’t. So, a man shouldn’t stop respecting his partner and shouldn’t stop loving his children either. He must learn to respect his children’s choice of who to love- he shouldn’t suffocate them with his likes and dislikes. ~Latika Teotia
