Any relationship requires work, if you want to make it a good long lasting one that is, which means you would need to make some sacrifices and effort in order to make it work. You do not need to think or work so hard though. Sometimes, just by you showing up or being there is already a great deal. It might sound simple but it still requires you to put in the work. That is you have to make time to show up, to care and to be present especially when you are needed. If you are committed in doing so, then it is high likely that your relationship will go far. But if you have decided to check out of it, or that you think that you can do without it, then look no further about why it failed than the mirror.
