All relationships are ‘two-way’ streets.
It is convenient to be in a relationship as long as you are getting something in it – attention… time… love… care. But then comes a phase when the other person is not in a position to ‘give’, and in turn requires all of that.
And that’s the ‘litmus test’ for a relationship – “Will now the getter be able to turn into a giver”?
Well! The most difficult thing in life is to bear the shift of spotlight elsewhere. Yes! ‘Importance’ has a weird way to make a person ‘hungry for more’. However, in lasting relationships, partners have to be ready to alternately hold the torch and let the other person receive the ‘shine’.
And that’s where most relationships fail – because usually, one of the two is too addicted of ‘shining’.
All healthy relationships are about ‘give and take’. The only thing is to realize…‘when to do what’.
