Dear Young Ladies, I have a piece of advice for you. It’s the most important relationship advice you will ever get. I swear. It’s that important. Are you ready?
Stop disrespecting your man.
I mean it. I don’t care if he’s a d*****-bag or an ***-hole, or any of the other things you want to be sure I understand about him. Either leave the dude, or respect him. Period.
You can’t bully your man into treating you better. <<Click to tweet
It’s a cycle. You disrespect him, he cares about you less. He cares about you less, you disrespect him more. The only hope you have is to be the bigger person (Ahem. Not via the above picture) and stop the cycle.
Stop it, I tell you!
Because here’s what it boils down to: If you’re nice (read: respectful) to someone, particularly when they don’t “deserve” it, they find themselves increasingly unable to be hateful towards you. It’s love, yo. The one thing in life that can’t be fought against.
There’s no reasonable counter for unabashed love and respect.
And I gotta tell you, ladies: you’re grieving me. I see the way you talk to your boyfriends in the lines at the store and in the mall. It’s downright disrespectful. Somewhere along the line in our society you whippersnappers have decided it’s plain cute to pick on your boyfriends and push them around. Well, guess what? It’s not. They may laugh. For now. But 3 years down the road when your marriage is falling apart? Yeah. Not so funny then.
So respect your boyfriends. Or leave.
P.S. There’s a book about this. It’s called Love and Respect. Imagine that.
Do it. DO it.
