The concept of finding your “other half” suggests that we need a partner in order to be truly fulfilled. A man doesn’t make you better, but true love should bring out the best in you. Here are six signs of true support that cannot be compromised.
He highlights your worth, not raises it
Being in a relationship doesn’t give you more value, it helps you see your value. You need to be with a man who makes it clear why he wants to be with you so that you recognize how amazing you are.
He wants you to live up to your potential
Never waste your time on someone who wants to outshine or belittle you. Your partner should help you recognize that you have the ability to obtain more success in every aspect of your life.
He provides balance in your life
This is essential because your relationship needs to provide both give and take so that you don’t feel as though your partner gives you purpose. You need to take turns in the spotlight and support each other to keep your love afloat.
He doesn’t form your opinions, he shows interest in them
A guy who interjects your values and opinions has no interest in supporting you, only controlling you. Don’t lose yourself in your relationship – find a guy whose interests allow you to grow as a person.
He’s grateful to be in your life
He shouldn’t believe that you need him, he should instead feel lucky to have met you. You know you’ve met someone who truly gives himself credit for your success when he can’t admit to being thankful for your relationship.
He gives you the space to find yourself
The most important part of a relationship is being able to grow alongside your partner, not because of your partner. Don’t settle for a guy who doesn’t push you to be your true self.
