Another tip that I’ve learned is that the things that I value and the traits that are important to me should be kept as just that – important to me. Whatever you value when you’re single should not be let go just because you’re in a new relationship. The person you are with should complement you and your standards, and you should be a complement to them as well. Don’t lower your values to satisfy the person you are with. What you value is important, and it’s part of what makes you who you are. Don’t think that your standards are set too high and that the only way to be with someone is by lowering them because, by doing that, you are changing a beautiful part of who you are in order to please someone else. Don’t lower your standards to please other people, not even friends and family. So, hold your head high. There is a perfect complement to your standards. And you and your standards are far too valuable to be lowered to try to please someone else.
