The truth is that people will only respect you as much as they believe that you respect yourself. When you don’t seem to respect yourself enough to walk away from a bad situation then you can’t expect the other person to respect you enough to treat you better.
The reality is that people want to be with someone that actually wants to be with them, not someone that stays simply because they are afraid to leave. The only power that any union really has is the willingness to send the workers out on strike. People have to be willing to do without out some of the things that they want and need in order to achieve the ultimate goal in the long run. People have to even be willing to lose what they currently have in order to get what they really want.
"People will only respect you as much as they believe that you respect yourself."
This is why the no contact rule was created. The no contact method is basically when you cut off all ties with someone because they are unwilling or unable to give you what you want in a relationship. I know that this may seem a bit drastic but it is necessary sometimes. Let’s be real, some people just don’t get the message until they see you walk away. Now, the difference between the no contact rule and simply giving up on the relationship is the temporary nature of the former. When you initiate the no contact method, it isn’t to end the relationship but to allow it to undergo a metamorphosis into something new.
Of course using the no contact rule can be scary because walking away (albeit temporarily) is a risk. Your partner may not want to change and may actually even decide that they are better off without you. The truth is that there are no guarantees in life and everything boils down to risk and reward. The best thing to do before employing the no contact method is to ask yourself if you would rather be alone than to continue on in your relationship’s current state. If the answer is yes, then the no contact method is for you but if you are unsure then that generally means that you aren’t going to stick to the no contact method so it won’t work anyway.
The thing about the no contact rule is that it is a marathon and not a sprint. This means that you have to have some real resolve to use it. You probably aren’t going to get results right away so you have to really have your mind made up and your heels dug in for it to work. The thing that you have to remember is that every time you start the no contact method and break it, you weaken you position and make it less likely for them to believe that you will every walk away.
The no contact rule can save a relationship by letting the other person see that they can lose you and also allowing them to see what it would be like if they did. You have to see the no contact method as an act of kindness or it won’t work. You truly have to believe that you are enough and showing the other person that you will walk away is helping both of you. This means that you don’t need to be vindictive or try to set them up to fail when you are gone. You have to believe that you are what is best for them and they will see that through the no contact method otherwise you will simply do things that let them know that they are better off without you after all.
