Lesson of the day: Taking, and being taken for granted, is ultimately what kills a relationship - be it between friends or in love. Not the differences, not the similarities, but the denial, the stubborn refusal to see as absolutely necessary the work and the mundanities that are required to keep things fresh. Day in and day out, day in and day out, relentlessly, like everyday chores sometimes, day in and day out. 

This is one lesson that never seems to get fully learnt by any of us, I realize today, even as realization dawns as to why some things happened the way they happened. I remain alternatively, a helpless bystander and an exhausted victim.
