Often, we fail to recognize the true worth of what we possess until it slips away. There are individuals who never value you, even in your absence. Their self-centered nature means that anything not providing immediate benefit doesn’t register on their radar. Their excessive self-love leaves no room for anyone else. No matter how much effort, flexibility, or understanding you invest, and no matter how deep your love, they remain resistant to change.
They won’t reciprocate your love because, engrossed in self-love, there’s nothing left for others. All their time, interest, love, and affections are self-directed. Like a gravitational force, they draw you in and consume the emotions of those around them.
HERE ARE 5 SIGNS THAT THEY DON’T DESERVE YOU:
THEY LIE TO YOU AND CHEAT ON YOU
Breaking trust and dishonesty characterize them. Living a dual life, they use you to support another. You’re not important to them; they prioritize only themselves. Everyone else is a means to further their pleasure, to be used and discarded. They lack the love to be honest and the consideration to end one relationship before starting another.
THEY ARE TAKERS AND NOT GIVERS
In a mutually loving relationship, both partners should be givers. They contribute their time, resources, love, and space. A giver ensures everyone is taken care of and content. On the contrary, a taker gives nothing back; it’s a one-way street with them. It’s either their way or the highway. You need someone acknowledging your individuality, desires, emotions, and needs—a giver who enriches the relationship more than depleting it.
THEY BELITTLE YOU
They’re so absorbed in their own life and desires that you’re inconsequential in their internal world. This lack of respect surfaces in belittling comments, especially when emotionally unstable. While teasing is acceptable in a relationship, mean-spirited comments intended to hurt signify a need to move on. A person who loves and respects you won’t tear you down, certainly not in front of others. A self-centered individual, however, will break you down because it’s in their nature.
THEY CANNOT BE COUNTED ON
They’re unreliable in providing support or being where they should be, blinded by their massive ego. Forgetfulness and missing significant events are common. You deserve someone dependable, someone there for you in times that matter. You’re there for them, so why can’t they reciprocate?
THEY ARE SELFISH RATHER THAN TEAM-ORIENTED
You’re a team, destined to succeed or fail together. A black hole, termed a singularity, allows nothing close without destruction. Self-oriented individuals need personal victories to boost their fragile egos, incapable of seeing someone else succeed, even a significant other. You need a partner pulling in the same direction, putting in effort for the team’s success, even if they won’t receive personal glory from it.
