WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER TAKE FOR GRANTED YOUR RELATIONSHIP
In this world, the only thing that does not change is change itself. Simply put, everything changes. Even in romantic relationships, change is inevitable. The first change you will ever experience is the transition from single hood to a person who has committed his or her life to somebody. Along the path of romantic bliss, you will still experience a lot of different changes.
But even though change is inevitable and is really bound to happen, in a love relationship one thing should never change and that is you should always cherish each other. You should never take each other for granted.
Taking Each Other For Granted: Will Not Feel Good
You have, even once in your life, experienced being taken for granted. Do you remember how it felt? Did it feel good? Your answer is most likely “no.”
In a romantic relationship, two people are involved. And when you talk about people, it is all about feelings and emotions. If you do not feel good being taken for granted by acquaintances and friends, how much more if the person taking you for granted is somebody you love and care about? How bad will you feel?
This may seem to be a very “common sense” topic but then again, common sense is not that common anymore these days. They seem to not understand this concept in a love relationship. No matter how many times you say “I love you” or “I’m in love with you” but if you do not let your partner feel it and instead you take him or her for granted, then there is no point in it all.
Some people think that it is all about giving each other expensive gifts that you show interest in your partner and in the relationship. But this should not be the case. Not taking each other for granted is all about giving time for each other. It is all about showing concern for your partner. It is all about asking how his or her day was. It is all about giving your partner a hug before he or she leaves for work. It is all about the small things that you do for your partner that makes him or her feel loved. It is never about expensive gifts.
Taking Each Other For Granted: Will Stunt The Growth and Maturity of Your Relationship
Making each other feel important is a boost of morale. It will make you and your partner feel good about each other. This would also signify that if your partner is important to you then it also means that your relationship together is important and vice-versa. If you put it in an equation it goes something like “partner is important = relationship is important.”
Having this feeling in a relationship is very important in its growth and maturity. This is why you should never take each other for granted. Taking each other for granted will harbour negative feelings and the receiving end will feel neglected and will take no interest either with you or the relationship. If this happens then the relationship will not grow. A once happy and intimate relationship will crumble and turn into a bad relationship.
Taking Each Other For Granted: Will Ruin Your Relationship
Would you want to stick with a person who will not make you feel important? Would you like to stay in relationship where you feel neglected? No. Why on earth would you like to feel neglected? Taken for granted? This is what happens when you take each other for granted. When one party in a love relationship comes to this point, the relationship will stop growing and will stagnate. And if it continues to go on like this, it is inevitable that the relationship will fail.
The notion that “nothing can ruin our relationship as long as we love each other” is a very misleading idea. You can love a person but there is still a possibility that you can take him or her for granted. You may care about a person but it is still possible that you can take him or her for granted. Once this happens and snowballs, no matter how you love and care for each other, it will really come to a point where your relationship will be ruined because of neglect.
