It’s truly unfortunate when we love someone and take for granted that they will always be in our lives. We treat them poorly, and in some cases, leave them for someone else who we think looks better or has more money. This is the typical sad song that most people play when they abuse the relationships that they are in. Even if they have everything they could ever want in their relationship, they are still not satisfied…that is, until they lose the person they are with to someone else or to death.
Why do we allow ourselves to mistreat the people that we love? We beg to the stars for a love that we can share with a person, and then when we receive this love, we throw it away. This is something that most people can relate to because they are either the person that was taken for granted in a relationship, or they were the person who took the other for granted. If you can’t figure out which side of the fence you sit on, then you should watch this video.
It tells the typical story of a guy who loved a woman, took her for granted, left her for a younger woman, got dumped, and then attempted to come back to the woman he left. Too bad for him because she found someone better by the time he attempted to return. This pain can be easily avoided by simply appreciating the people that are in your life. Stop disregarding those people who have always had your back. We tend to want those things that we can’t have…most people say that is associated with believing that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. Then when we throw our current blessings away for new ones, we attempt to run back when we realize it isn’t what we thought it would be.
Take the time to think of all the wonderful attributes that the people in your life have. The more you focus on the great qualities of the people in your life. The more you will appreciate their presence.
