Do you give more love than your receive? Are you trying to make someone love you? Dr. Robin says it's time to realize that you cannot force someone to love you. "You don't want to work hard like that," Dr. Robin says. "You want to work where there is mutuality—where both people are on board."
Don't bang your head against a wall wondering what went wrong in an unbalanced relationship. Instead, Dr. Robin says to put your energy into making better relationship decisions. "What you can do is become smart and so wise in who you share your heart, your love, your mind and your body with," she says.
Trying to make someone love you is a waste of your time and Dr. Robin says once you realize your own self-worth, you won't make the same mistake again. "Show up as a grown-up—being aware that you are worthy of being loved," Dr. Robin says. "That in and of itself will be the foundation for you drawing the right people into your life, creating the destiny of your dreams."
