Whether it be between family members or in a relationship, a good man understands that no problem can be resolved until it is faced. The only thing that avoidance of difficulties will accomplish, is delaying the inevitable and potentially making things worse.

There is a difference between choosing your battles and avoiding conflict altogether – the important thing is to know when to hold’em and when to fold’em.

He should NEVER abuse you.

There are many different types of abuse, certainly not just physical, and certainly not just in a relationship. Someone can be emotionally abusive towards a child or pet as well as their significant other.

Regardless, they all have one thing in common: The desire to break another down. A good man recognizes that his confidence and worth comes from within himself, and never from attempting to place others below him.

At any sign of any type of abuse, walk (run) away immediately. It will not get better, and you deserve more.

There is just too much lately. Too much negativity. Too much combativeness between genders. Too much mistreatment. Too much argument and not enough collaboration. Not enough love. Not enough respect. Not enough caring.

We need to stop making excuses for those who mistreat us and start lowering our tolerance for this nonsense. Any self-respecting decent human being will treat you with the love and compassion that you deserve.

If they don’t, then what’s the point of staying with them?
