A relationship without commitment is superficial and fake. A commitment without a relationship is hurtful and not mutual. The more I understand things and the difference of the given, it is hard but more fulfilling to choose and have a commitment without relationship. In that way, I am certain that I give my best efforts and expect nothing in return. They say it’s better to understand than be understood - same as with giving than receiving. You’ve done your part, and if underappreciated, you know in your heart that you gave your all. At the end of the day, that’s what matters most.
