Relationships all work the same. They need time, and they need patience and understanding. It takes a lot to put up with this kind of life. It’s important to never forget what you are putting on another person. I feel the same way about my family. I never meant for these things to affect them but it does. It affects every-body in your life. So, the most important thing in a relationship, in my life, when you are in this kind of position, is to never forget how it affects those people and to never not be empathetic and understanding.
