It seems as though there is always someone who feels more of than the other.
I suppose in this case it means that forgiveness is not equally given, nor is patience similarly practiced.
The whole idea of inequality and double standards plays a role in the everyday life. Whether it be between two people or groups.
The lack of forgiveness shows a lessened amount of care which is no damn surprise with most people nowadays. And when one does not have patience it affects not only the other person but him/herself.
I can forgive you as many times needed and I can withstand your issues, but if that is all not returned then there is nothing to hold the relationship together.
Unrequited affection is like poison. A poison two people were suppose to take, and one spat it out. Now the one who took the risk is the only one suffering the poison’s toxins.
