Staying in a relationship just because you love someone is never worth it. Love is not all you need. You also need someone who respects you, someone who is loyal to you, someone who gives you reassurance.
You need someone who makes you their priority, not just an option. Someone who cares about not just your physical health, but also your mental health. Someone who cares whether you go to be sad.
To be more exact, you need someone who often makes you smile and laugh through texts. Someone who cares how your day went. Someone who wants to talk to you over the phone because they miss hearing your voice. Someone who enjoys holding your hand and cuddling you because they want to feel closer to you.
Someone who doesn't exhibit shady behavior because they have nothing to hide. Someone who doesn't try to control you because they trust the decisions you make will never disrespect the relationship. Someone who actually talks about having a future with you, imperfect or flawed as you may be, because they simply can't imagine their life without you.
