Relationships are hard. If they were easy, they wouldn’t be worth it. But, sometimes this causes people to put up with more than they should. It sometimes suggests that we should wear blinders and ignore the obvious mistreatment that we are being dealt. Despite expected difficulties of relationships there is a certain amount of respect we all deserve.
This quote is a great place to start. If your partner or love interest makes more excuses than effort, it is time to say goodbye. Excuses are a red flag and a bad sign of what is to come. Effort, even if it is not perfectly executed, shows a person’s commitment to the relationship. He or she is expending energy to make it work. Excuses show the opposite.
