Often times, when we are so deep into our relationships, we put up with things, for the sake of. Before you got into this relationship, you had your list, (we all do). “Nope I’m not dating a guy with tattoos. She has kids? She’s not for me.” These were your “Deal Breakers”, so how is it now you’re fed up? It’s a situation that’s unfair for everyone. Who really changed?
Love can’t be taken for granted. Enough becomes enough after playing your role, with no appreciation. We do special gestures because we want no motive. In a relationship, the last thing you want to feel is taken for granted, that all your investment has no benefit. The sole purpose in having a relationship is to grow, mutually. For a relationship to turn into a one sided path, it gets ugly and selfish. It doesn’t happen overnight; we see the break up coming but try to avoid it.
When enough is enough, it’s a feeling that was being accumulated beneath your skin, like water boiling. But is it fair? Since communication is key, why couldn’t this entire situation had been discussed through the relationship, might have saved it. We don’t actually realize this time has come, in all honestly once you begin feeling a way address it then. You make dinner every night, all you ask is to put the dishes in the sink instead of leaving it on the table, and it makes things easier. He doesn’t see it that way, he feels your suppose to do everything, no team. As a man, you pay for every date, even your own birthday! Can you get a break on the day you were born? She almost choked on her steak when you pushed the bill in her direction.
In both situations it’s a love that was lost. Putting up with the drama for so long, will just become non existence. What are some things you can put up with, verses the deal breaker? Have you ever felt taken for granted in your relationship? Why should you stay? What happen to your “list”?
