50-50 relationships usually don’t last. The thing is, relationships are not built on reciprocity, this for that. No, they are built on generosity. You have to be willing to reach further than the middle to makeup for the short-comings of others.
Even Steven just doesn’t work when we are talking about fallibility of people.
100% relationships, however, the kind where someone is willing to reach all away across, the kind where both parties are willing to forgive when none is required, those are rare.
Instead of choosing to reach half way, go the extra mile and close the gaps.
