Friendship, a two-way street

Do you know the feeling of being in a relationship where you do all the work and get nothing back? It’s frustrating and can lead to the end of a relationship. For a relationship to thrive, both parties must give and take equally. Without balance, resentment and frustration grow, causing communication breakdowns and a lack of mutual effort.

Have you experienced this? How did you resolve it? If not, have you seen it in someone else’s relationship? The key is mutual investment. Compromise is essential for any successful relationship. For instance, telling a friend, “I’ve been initiating our calls, and I’ve noticed you haven’t been reaching out. I value our friendship, and it would mean a lot if you also checked in occasionally,” demonstrates the need for reciprocity.

True harmony in relationships arises from shared effort and understanding. Without mutual attempts, even the strongest bonds can unravel.
