Putting The Effort In...

If I love a person...be it romantically or otherwise... I will go to great lengths to work on my relationship with them. I’m willing to communicate, compromise, discuss, listen, apologize, make myself vulnerable, forgive, go out of my way, inconvenience myself….anything, really.

But the amount of effort I am willing to put in is proportional to how much I value the relationship and and also how much effort I am receiving in return.

To be brutally honest, I’m really not going to put up with any **** from most people. If you treat me poorly I’m not going to patiently try and explain to you how you hurt me and how we might work through it. I just don’t accept poor treatment, period. If you lie to me...insult me...put me down...try to manipulate me.. I’m gone. That’s it.

Maybe my standards are too high or maybe I’m unreasonable or maybe I’m unforgiving?

I think not. I’m just a person perfectly comfortable having fewer, close friends and I don’t waste my time on relationships that are poisonous and draining.
