Life Bites Series. Relationships of all sorts whether they are personal friends, acquaintances, work colleagues, neighbours or those significant others need working on. You cannot take any relationship for granted then expect it to stay the same forever, it just doesn't exist.
A relationship is give and take, it doesn't have to be 50/50 it can even be 90/10 provided it equals 100 then it is a success. What others think of it or feel that it should be is of no consequence, it is what it means to the both of you that matters, nothing else.
We all have our up and down days, but either way we still control our emotions and we shouldn't expect others to put up with our "stuff" just to make us feel better even if they show sympathy. Everyone wants to feel special as opposed to being used, always remember that.
