When it comes to love we should never settle. Knowing what you deserve is important.

Sure, all relationships are different but when you break them down to their cores, if they are lacking the following things the relationship is most likely toxic. Sure, in life we are forced to deal with things we don’t want to, but when it comes to our relationships, if the atmosphere is not where it needs to be we should not stay in the relationship. We all need to be strong enough to walk away when we should.

These eight things are things that everyone deserves in a relationship. Don’t ever accept something or someone that doesn’t meet your needs. You are amazing and should be treated as such.

1. Trust

Without trust, relationships can be a headache. You both have to be able to trust one another.

2. Respect

A healthy relationship requires respect from you and your partner. If your partner ignores your opinions and thoughts then you need to head for the road because that relationship is only bringing you down.

3. Safety

You should always feel safe in your relationship. You should be with someone you are comfortable around that you know accepts you for who you are. You should be able to let your vulnerable side show without having to feel insecure.

4. Adventure

No matter what you consider an adventure, it is needed. You deserve to be surprised and experience new things, together.


5. Passion

All relationships need intimacy and romance at least on occasion if not all the time. When the passion is gone some people try to hold onto something they cannot light back up and it hurts them in the long run. You and your partner should share a close intimate bond with one another.

6. Happiness

Everyone deserves to be happy. If you are not happy in your relationship there is something wrong. You should never waste your time in a relationship full of heartache.

7. Security and Support

Sure, you both may be working your asses off but everything is taken care of. Both of you are fulfilling your parts, and everything is the way it should be. No one is dealing with the weight of the world on their shoulders. You should not have to worry about failing when you have a good support system.

8. Unconditional Love

You deserve someone who loves you for who you are no matter what. Someone who supports you and helps you work towards your dreams. A person who loves you, all of you. Someone who will respect you and make you happy.
