What to say when you feel disrespected in a relationship?
- Start with why what you want to say is important.
- Briefly describe what happened that felt hurtful or disrespectful.
- Say how their behavior made you feel—the impact.
- Ask for what you need going forward.
- End by reinforcing why you are making this request.
Is disrespect a reason to break up?
“Your partner won’t work with you to solve problems or get things done [or] has too many emotional outbursts, throws hissy fits or temper tantrums when something goes wrong.” And obviously in cases where there is abuse, manipulation, or disrespect, you should definitely end the relationship.
Can someone love you and still disrespect you?
Yes, loving someone does mean you accept the bad and the good, but it doesn’t mean you let someone mistreat you. It doesn’t mean you let someone act superior or dominate you all the time. If your partner does that, it’s not love.
