Never Let Yourself Be Taken For Granted

“Make sure you don’t start seeing yourself through the eyes of those who don’t value you. Know your worth even if they don’t.”

Being taken for granted is a terrible feeling specially if you are a genuinely nice person, few people start taking your kind, loving and respectful behavior as your weakness. They are always willing to take more from you but never seem to be grateful or admire you for all that you have done for them. You don’t get the love and attention you deserve.

People take you for granted because they know you love them and care about them. If they get upset, you will immediately try to make things right or change yourself according to their opinion by neglecting your own preferences. However, this allows them to play with your emotions. They never respect your space and boundaries. They feel regardless of what happens, you will be there for them and endure all the crap they throw at you.

Don’t let anyone take you for granted. Love and relationships are supposed to bring out the best in you, they should lift you higher and offer you the support you need to thrive. A healthy relationship will never demand you to sacrifice your dignity and self respect. Believe me, people always treat you the way you treat yourself. Just think how anyone can admire a person who doesn’t have a backbone..

If you don’t like someone’s behavior instead of feeling inferior make them realize that you value yourself and your worth doesn’t depend on them. They can’t keep treating you like an object. They have no right to steal your joy and energy. Set yourself free in order to restore your peace and shine on your own.

‘You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserves your love, affection and attention .’

  1. Nice Post Kranti!! You always make Kranti In every Post. Pardon me!
    If we go deeper in this than we find Ourself as we respect some people in our life that is why we kill our self-integrity but others not even think about this. They care about them self only and that makes difference in the close relationship as well.

  2. So true.
    It just so happens that people either take you for granted or just hate you if they don’t manage to do so.
    I have come across such people and I have always given them a free pass. But I have recently stopped doing that. There is a certain limit to that, I guess.

    Again, amazing post. Well articulated. 😊

  3. Great post Kranti 🌹
    Liked it very much
    Made me to think deeply about the importance & value of self love .

    ..When your opinion of yourself goes up then you’ll stop trying to get so much validation and attention from other people. You become less needy and find an inner stability even when your world might be negative or uncertain at times.
    The increasing self-esteem and self-love also makes you feel more deserving of good things in life and so you’ll self-sabotage less and go after what you deep down want with more motivation and focus than ever before.

  6. Hiii…
    How r u doing my friend ??..πŸ™‚
    I hope you remember me somewhere in your exquisite writing thoughts…..
    You pointed out a very good point here that ‘First look for yourself, then go for the rest.’
    Many people await for the others’ opinion. Many love the others too much and empty out their love buckets…….
    A lot of things are going on…….
    One other point I want to admit here is that, If it goes in either way, there are several advantages/disadvantages of both……..
    Most Important thing is the BALANCE. Of course, It’s hard to maintain….

  8. A wonderful post…

    So damn true, never allow others to depreciate your worth by being easily accessible. As this lets them take things for granted, some times you have to allow time for yourself as well as others to understand your importance, your absence will teach them the value of your presence.

  9. We should love ourselves first then only can we love others. If we take ourselves for granted then the rest of the world will also do that. We ourselves are as important as anybody else.
