Relationships have evolved over the years, they’ve become more technological now. The days of writing letters and appreciating every bit of it are long gone, I sort of miss those days, the days when every single phone call meant more than anything else. It’s all sort of taken for granted now, because everything is so easily to obtain and also easy to replace (harsh, I know, but true nonetheless).

Learn to truly appreciate your partner, don’t miss out even the smallest of effort they bring your way and let them know that you’re aware of their efforts. Gentle reminders every now and then that everything they do for you is appreciated means a lot to them, it doesn’t matter if they know it already, reminders are very important. Life is too short, and you don’t want to know how short it is, certain incidents and scenarios may take place, incidents that will make you regret not giving your all to your partner.
