If one has changed,we have a problem. If they don’t change,that’s a problem,too! So how can we possibly define what kind of a change we really want! The breaking point is: change should be flexible. If we change for good and a person doesn’t reciprocate, then what? We meet almost all their demands, rectify almost all our faults (I say almost because one can’t fundamentally change his nature),works hard to make good the losses he had incurred because of his follies, but,then again, fail to make them content.Then, what? Do we wait? Do we give up? Or do we keep striving hard to get our relationship back to the starting point? I really, really want to know.
