Taken For Granted

Abandoned building at the Missouri Historic Mine Site

I have seen so many times, a relationship destroyed because someone took the other person for granted. It happens far too often. Couples become complacent in their relationship, and someone takes the other for granted. I think it happens so gradual they don’t even realize they are doing it. I don’t think the guilty party really knows it until the damage is done.

Can the damage be repaired? In my opinion it is totally up to the guilty party. They have to acknowledge the wrong they did and accept responsibility. Too many times they are in denial. “I didn’t do that”, “You are being ridiculous.”, “It’s your imagination.”, etc… One will never fix the wrong and make it right if they don’t admit they screwed up. lt takes a big person to admit they did wrong but with some work the relationship might be able to be saved. At least an effort is being made to right the wrong. It is going to take hard work, but the reward is well worth the effort.

Identify the problem, take responsibility and commit to repairing the damage done.

  1. Your picture of the old mine building is very much like a rusted out relationship. It often takes more to refurbish something like that then build something new…at least a relationship can be refurbished back to better than before on a foundation of forgiveness

  2. I have met many people with degrees plastering their walks who do not have the sense to wear a raincoat in a downpour, and uneducated wise men who used their eyes and the brains the good Lord gave them to pay attention.
    Nice to meet another in that second category. Blessings on you.
