Adieu

Published March 4, 2022 by tindertender

It has been said that if you give with the expectation of receiving something in return then it’s not really a gift from the heart or out of love.

Yet when one party is always giving, the other always taking, there is imbalance. The relationship is not healthy.

So the gift giving stops.

The relationship ends.

It has proven itself to be unsustainable in its current form.

When ones cup is being depleted without care of return then the exchange must stop. Not because of the lack of receiving, but because of the lack of care.

I fill your cup, you fill mine.

Otherwise, we simply are not good for each other.

I bid you adieu.

I’ve no interest in vampiric relationship.
