Girlfriends and Relationships

Girlfriends and Relationships

When you are in them, sometimes seems like you are stuck

You think I’m doing the right thing but then you look around and wonder
Wasn’t I in a better place before you came along? 

I was told relationships and friendships are a lot of work
You only get out of it what you put into it
And anything worth having is worth working for, heard that one just yesterday on the radio
All those old cliché’s

But who’s listening to them anyway

If relationships are about partnerships can you tell the partner because they just don’t get it.

Seems like you do all the work and give, and conform and try to change who you are to make them happy. I mean what should be 50/50 has now turned into 80/20 or even 95/5.

But still late at night I’m listening as one of my girlfriends calls with the latest drama about one of their relationships and how their partner did them wrong.  How I try to be a sympathetic ear but after the 4th time this has happened in 3 years it becomes hard.

You try to give sound advice and tell them maybe its not always that person maybe there is something in you.  But then that friend turns on you. But if you really think about it, you are the one calling disturbing me when I have to get up the next morning to rant about all the back bending you are doing in your relationship and how your partner is never there for you, and it’s the same conversation year after year.

But what do you really get in return for all your back bending?

An ulcer!  And you are giving me one too just listening to you!

Why? Because of the stress of not being able to be who you really are putting all that work into something that in the end you shouldn’t have been working for anyway because guess what….

They weren’t the one.

Funny how you get with all the bad ones and the sad ones before you find the right one then have to be hit over the head with a brick to be able to tell they are the one, because you don’t recognize the good ones when they are staring you in the face.

Why can’t that one person willing to make the relationship work be wearing a sign that says

“Here I am!”

Would make life and relationships easier don’t you think?  At least for me then I could go back to sleep!
