7 Important Things to do when Someone You Love Disrespects You ...

We've all been faced with those hurtful moments when you don't know what things to do when someone you love disrespects you.

It's easier to let things roll off your back when it's someone we aren't close to, but when it's a person we love and trust, those hurts run much deeper.

With some careful thought, you can navigate the things to do when someone you love disrespects you without making things worse and hopefully begin the process of reconciliation

1. It's All in Your Tone

I've discovered that one of the most important things to do when someone you love disrespects you, is to maintain a respectful tone.

Our instincts tell us to be on the defensive and lash out to protect ourselves.

This isn't' the best method for maintaining healthy relationships.

While it may feel good in the moment, disrespecting the person who just offended you will not only make things worse, but it lowers you to their level.

Be the bigger, more mature person and speak with an appropriate tone, one that you would like in return.

Hold Back on Your First Thoughts

@Noriko I'm sure your beautiful maybe the reason he is pointing these parts of your body out, it's because without noticing you have been pointing them out to him with out noticing it. Honestly I do this all the time with my husband and I get upset when he then brings them up. If you aren't happy with whatever it is your imaging in your head about your body parts just fix it or just except yourself. You are as sexy as you make yourself feel! That's what I tell me self when I'm not feeling so hot and it works very time. Best of luck! But honestly I'm sure he loves you very much no man likes a women that is not confident... 😃

Not sure I agree... If you talk or do something out of line then you better be able to deal with the backlash. If you don't want it said or done to you- DONT DO IT!! #justmythoughts!

I recently had a hurtful comment from my partner about my body part and I was surprised that he didn't think it was bad at the time when he said that to me. He's normally a lovely guy with caring nature. He apologised deeply but this was the second time he made a comment about my body and I'm struggling not to think about it and feeling hurt :(
