There is no such thing as 50/50 in a relationship.
You both have to be 100% all in for it to work.
You both have to put in the same effort and hard work to make it last.
Often times, you can find yourself in a situation where you are giving 100% and they are giving little or none; it can be exhausting.
I have found I like to be a rescuer, to try and fix things that are broken.
I know this is extremely unhealthy.
It is both physically and emotionally draining to be the hero.
You give so much of yourself away in hopes that the other party will catch on.
You can end up giving up the best part of you in the process.
What happens when you have nothing left to give?
That is kind of where I'm at right now.
I gave so much of my time and effort to something that didn't work out in the end.
Now, just the thought of starting over makes me want to take a nap.
The thing is: every relationship is work.
Sometimes, I'd rather sit at home alone than talk to anyone because I am just tired.
I'm tired of trying and getting nowhere.
I'm sick of giving everything and ending up with nothing.
It's just too much.
I believe you should always give it your all in any relationship you enter into.
It's not fair to the other person that you were once wronged, but be careful not to give too much of yourself away.
