Relationships can’t be forced into becoming what it’s not meant to be. With each passing day, the weather changes and becomes more unpredictable. The relationships that we have are like that too. Some are easily affected by external factors, while others remain consistent with minor impacts that probably go unnoticed.
Knowing you’re putting in so much efforts but lacking in progress is not a pleasant feeling. It’s like pumping air into a flat tyre with a punctured tube. You keep pumping but the air disappears. How frustrating, isn’t it?
Being in a relationship requires both parties to respect and honour each other’s time, as well as effort in making it meaningful. If these needs aren’t met, it’s truly useless to pursue it any longer. There’s nothing left when you’re drained from all the trying, except a bitter aftertaste.
Don’t linger. See yourself worthy of a better person, not just a drifter who wanted a temporary shelter from the storm.
There’s so much truth in this. Friendship is truly a gift that you give yourself. Lucky is one who gets to enjoy this privilege to be with one or two, or a tribe of besties, who love them whole heartedly. I have mine and ever so grateful for that!
P/S Dear AJ, let’s not forget our promise when we grow old…we’ll continue to have our endless random chats from politics to husband’s antics, and have a great laugh!
