It's easy for people to take things for granted, like text messages about someone's day or nights that you spend together drinking just coz you're bored.
However, when you go from seeing a person every single day to just once every few weeks, you'll end up appreciating every lil thing so much more. Trust me.

So, never take even the smallest things for granted - even if it's just a goodbye kiss or a simple two-word reminder on how to deal with life or why you're going through what you're going through.
And when you feel like you've been forgotten or you feel like a person no longer cares about you coz the time and attention once given to you has been cut by 99.9%, remember what's important: not the amount of time and attention given to you, but the fact that they actually give you time and attention when they can, even if it's just one text message every 2 days or a few hours together every 2 weeks.
Everything worth having is worth the wait, so don't give up on something great for something that will only give you pleasure in the short term.
