A relationship is supposed to be alive. It’s not a solid foundation that you built and it will stay there forever, you need to participate and nourish it.
Many people think that by ignoring their partner they show their power and their freedom. In reality, they refuse to see the truth.
Ignoring your partner it’s like closing your eyes, and when you close your eyes anything can happen.
The truth is that nobody belongs to you and you belong to nobody. Everyone is free to stay or to go, and attitudes like, demands, jealousy, abuse or ignoring are not offering anything to the relationship, in fact the opposite, they take away whatever has being built.
Taking someone for granted means that you don’t respect them, you don’t need them, and you don’t want to offer anything to them. Actually means that this relationship has no meaning for you.
Don’t be surprised then if one day this person will not be there for you anymore, and don’t start asking “what did I do wrong?” or “why did he/she do that to me?”
The only way to treat your partner is the way you would like to be treated. Also the way you treat yourself. Honesty and attention are basic ingredients of a healthy relationship.
