So i’ve been asking myself about relationships for some time now – not only relationships that involve romantic affairs but also friendships. All the love, respect, trust, support, appreciation, need, comfort… How fast do feelings change? Can they really fade away?
Meeting someone, getting to know him/her, getting closer, sharing more and more every day… these are the steps that happen on a rather regular basis in our daily lives. It is after this point that most relationships start taking a path towards relationshits. What happens when we care about someone more than we do about ourselves? What happens when one side tries harder, loves more, trusts more and, most importantly, needs and depends on more? How to balance? Is it a mistake loving someone more than they love us? Is it a weakness trusting and needing someone more than they trust and need us? What happens when, even though we think we have no expectations from the person in front of us, we realize we indeed have at least some expectations? What happens if we keep giving but we never receive back? When the heart is broken – what to do?
Does it take two to screw up a relationship? Or is one enough for a relationshit? Help me understand. How do you know when a relationship becomes a relationshit? And then – what do you? Till when do you try? Or do you just watch them fade away? Is it worth pushing when the other person is not? Is it worth caring when the other person does not? And if we stop believing – what happens to all the hours, minutes, seconds spent together? All the memories, words, images, sounds, hugs, tears, laughters? They just fade away? What is it that remains? Memories of all good times – or only of bad times?
