If there is one thing I have noticed about relationships, is that a lot of times someone doesn’t feel like they are treated like the value/worth they are. It’s interesting. People are committing to one another and then treating them like they’re a dime a dozen.
Having been treated like I was replaceable I can so easily see why it means so much when you don’t feel like you are. And it’s so much better when you have someone to treat you like you aren’t replaceable as well. But another thing is, sometimes, once we get the feeling that we’re one in a million, we forget to treat them the same way.
I always want people to treat me like they know I’m the only one of my kind, but I’m not sure that I always treat them the same way. It makes me wonder about myself. Have I been so emotionally detached, scarred, and wounded, that I fail to see the necessity in treating others like the unique beings I wish to be treated as?
All relationships are important. And they all should be treated as such. So why aren’t they? I’ll never understand how we got so far away from appreciating one another, to the point where we take for granted the very lives that are intertwined in ours.
All I know is that when it comes to relationships, you should always be with someone who treats you like you’re the grand prize, not the consolation prize.
