Just imagine there is a behavior you continuously do, a situation you are continuously putting someone through or something you have to continuously apologize for. Most people think their significant other has some super power that enables them to understand their behavior or they have an overflow of love that allows them to deal with random bullshit. Some people just know that their significant other is a sucker for them, the other person is scared of losing them or they have come to the conclusion that they can not change you. But for every person that allows this behavior, there is a person who just doesn’t give a shit anymore.
When the things that used to bother them, doesn’t bother them anymore, you might want to consider that they are not really being patient. What you have playing in your mind may not be the real truth. Maybe they are staying because they have time invested in you. Maybe the sex is that good. Or maybe they are comfortable where they are and when they are no longer comfortable, they have already developed an exit plan. But the reality is that very often they don’t really care anymore. This does not mean they don’t love you, but they may not be in love with you anymore. Your expectation can not be that when you start acting right, everything is magically perfect. Your new found epiphany of righteousness may not positively affect their thoughts on the whole situation. Your recently developed divine behavior does not define when forgiveness is given and does not automatically make you a god among men.
Think of how many times this scenario has played out before or how long the scenario has been playing out. Sometimes it is just not enough. Sometimes the things they were willing to settle for then, they may no longer be willing to settle. It is amazing how when you are not getting the minimum from someone, the minimum is no longer enough once they get right. And sometimes you are just too late Moral of the story: Get right before you get left.
