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.
