Do you feel disrespected by your partner? How often do you feel disrespected? What are you doing about it? If you are feeling disrespected in your relationship, it is time to do something about it.
The first step you should take is to communicate that you are feeling disrespected to your partner. He or she may not know that they are being disrespectful. This is probably due to how he or she was raised. I'm not excusing the disrespectful behavior at all. It is imperative that you identify the disrespectful behavior with your partner. You need to communicate what is unacceptable to you so that the disrespectful behavior can stop.
You may be saying that identifying the problem is the easy part. The hard part is to get my partner to respect my wishes. If your partner ignores you and doesn't care, you got another problem altogether. You should really ask yourself if this guy/girl is the right one for you. You may need to exit the relationship. If you are already married, seek counseling. Your counselor will teach you good communication skills.
Now, if the disrespect enters the danger zone, I always say it's time to get your escape plan together. Your escape plan is your safety plan. Of course, I am talking about domestic violence. My advice: Run while you can!
