While you and your partner might not spend every second of every day speaking to one another, you should be well aware that if you need one another, the other will be there. If he really loves you, he will make time for you even if it’s just a few minutes here and there.
Far too often we allow people to tell us that they don’t have time for us when the truth is they just don’t want to make time for us. We accept the things in this world that we think we deserve and honestly, you don’t deserve to feel like you’re uncared for and you need to be sure that you never forget that. Sure, as your ‘man’ he might have a lot on his plate, and he might sometimes be overwhelmed but a simple text here and there or a call when he’s on break isn’t too much to ask for, period.
When it comes to relationships we deserve the efforts we put forth back in return. If you’re putting your efforts forth to make time for him, he needs to be doing the same for you. At the end of the day, the person you’re putting your all into has to be someone willing to help you grow and show you the support you as their partner need.
Excuses might be made but that doesn’t mean you have to accept them. If he really wants you to know that you’re cared for and that your presence in his life matters he will go the extra mile for you. Instead of treating you like just another option he will prove to you that you are in his life a priority.
When you’re not around, he will miss you and thus want to remind you that he can’t wait to see you. He will check-in and make sure you’re alright even if it’s just a simple text. While this might not seem like much to most, it’s something that makes us feel like we’re on top of the world.
If he cares about you, you will know that without a doubt in your mind and questioning it won’t be possible. He will spend time with you, ensure that you’re as comfortable as you should be, and always share the truth when it’s needed. Excuses won’t get anyone anywhere and accepting them from the people you’re placing your efforts into is only going to make you feel worse off than you did, to begin with.
If all the person in your life is doing is making excuse after excuse, you should find someone more worth your time. Life is too short to spend with someone who refuses to see your worth. Does the person who matters the most to you really care? If you have to question it, then your answers should already be quite clear. Efforts make all the difference.
