Sometimes we put a lot of effort into building a relationship….
Good faith. Positive regard. Active interest. Support. The outstretched hand of friendship.
But sometimes it’s one way… Wrong time. Wrong person. Wrong assumptions.
And sometimes it’s for the wrong reason… Celebrity. Reciprocity. Self interest.
Often we don’t know why the relationship isn’t meeting our expectations but something feels wrong…. Sound familiar?
Then please do yourself a favour. Stop making the effort and walk away. It’s not anyone’s fault. It happens.
Sure come back with fresh eyes , fresh energy, renewed purpose and re-engage – but take a break first. Focus on other relationships and see how they compare. Look at what you need and what you can give. Is it friendship that you want or something else?
And for goodness sakes, if you are on Twitter then don’t keep following folk who don’t show you the regard you want or deserve. You’re both better than that. The unfollow button is there for a reason – use it. Stop the charade of false adoration and focus your time on building the relationships that matter.
Then you’ll feel the love.
