7 Reasons Not To Settle In A Relationship

Love & Relationships

Settling for a partner who does not reciprocate emotionally, physically, spiritually, and vibrationally is one of the greatest mistakes you could ever make in a relationship.

The reasons for this might seem blatantly obvious, but still, so many people fall victim to a treacherous heart. So many of us have such a strong desire to love and be loved, that we sometimes accept less-than in a partner.

I am no stranger to falling into this downward spiralling pattern, due to heart pangs of wanting to be deeply in love with the wrong person. As a result, it's been one of the most excruciatingly painful heartaches of my life.

This read will list the ways in which you can end up hurting yourself if you settle for a partner who is more interested in a one-sided situationship. There are some really harmful consequences to settling in love, and after reading this list, you'll never want to go halfway with anyone ever again!

No Return On Your Self-Investment

When you make the decision to be with a person who is a lackluster partner, you are automatically setting your self-worth bar too low. If you value what you have to bring to the table emotionally, physically, financially, and energetically, your soul will repel anything that is less than your own worth.

If you value your heart, and respect your body and mind, you will not willingly align with somebody who doesn't deserve everything that you have to offer. Would you invest in a stock that contains less net worth than what you already possess? Of course not! The amount of love and time that you have to invest in someone should be equivalent, if not more, in the heart of your partner.

It is like witnessing magic when you watch an athlete do what they do best.
