The truth is, love is not convenient. It requires constant effort. It requires you to put in work every single day.
Your relationship is never going to last if you are not interested in making an effort. You should not pick and choose when to treat your person well, based on when it is easiest for you, when you do not have to go through much trouble, when things fall into your lap.
You cannot treat your person well when you are bored and go MIA when you have better ways to occupy your time. You cannot switch between considering them a priority and your last option, depending on what mood you happen to be in on any particular day.
They deserve your attention every single day. They deserve your respect every single day.
Sure, sometimes other things will get in the way of spending time with your person. Sometimes your focus has to shift to your work or your friends or your hobbies. After all, your person is not supposed to be the only important thing in your world.
But when they need you, you should not hesitate to be there for them. You should not be annoyed by the fact they are interrupting your otherwise pleasant day. You should not treat them like a nuisance for expecting you to listen to their problems, to support them, to encourage them.
