Relations often die when someone cares too much and someone else, not so much.
With time, the one who cares gets used to their partner’s ignorance and when they no longer try as much as they used to, their partner begins to feel what they are missing out on.
And more often than not, the realisation comes when it’s too late.
Every body is busy in today’s world. But, everybody also has priorities — For some, it’s family and loved ones; for others it’s career, job and everybody else apart from people who really matter.
And when you start taking someone for granted, their priority comes way too low to be given any importance until, you yourself begin to get deprioritized in their life.
Ignorance and take-for-granted attitude destroys a relation over time. Always!
