Stop letting others set the rules. In a relationship, you should act as partners, as equals, as a team.
Stop letting others control you. Even when you’re in a relationship, you’re in charge of making your own decisions. You’re still your own person.
Stop letting others tell you how to feel. Your emotions are valid, and you should date someone who understands and respects that fact.
Stop letting others take advantage of you. You should be giving as much as you receive in your relationships. It shouldn’t feel one-sided.
Stop letting others decide your self-worth. It doesn’t matter whether someone else calls you beautiful. It matters what you think of yourself.
Stop letting others manipulate you. Do what you want to do, not what you assume is expected of you.
Stop letting others disrespect you. Your opinions and thoughts matter, too.
Stop letting others set the pace. You’re allowed to have boundaries and you’re allowed to enforce them.
Stop letting others destroy your confidence. You should date someone who builds you up, not tears you down.
Stop letting others destroy your mental health. You’re allowed to leave if they aren’t treating you right.
Stop letting others have the last word. If you need to speak up, do it, even if it means you might lose them.
Stop letting others change you. Be yourself, and if they don’t like it, they don’t have to date you.
