Taking Advantage

I think that no matter how cool someone is or how much you love and value them, as the years go by you begin to take advantage of them.
There were things that you were so excited about in the beginning. You were awed by that person but as humans tend to do, you acclimate and you take for granted the things you were so grateful for when they were new.
I think this happens in every relationship. You become comfortable. In a way this is necessary for a relationships survival because you are able to take the bad with the good. I was just thinking today about Matt and how he does so many things that are sweet and thoughtful, how he takes care of me and gives me things I don’t even know that I need. I was hoping that I appreciate him enough, that even though we have been together for over a decade that my awe still shows because there are so many times I am struck with wonder that I could have gotten so lucky.


  1. I so totally agree with you. Well written! I feel the same way about, Matt. Lol. Just kidding...I feel that way about my Artie!

  2. lol you and Matt need to just get a room :P
