Putting effort into the relationship means you’re present during the hours when you’re with your person. It means you’re actively listening when they speak instead of staring down at your phone, texting other people or scrolling through social media.
If you want a successful relationship, you’re going to have to put in the effort. You’re going to have to give your person love and attention, even when you’re tired, even when you’re stressed, even when you’re not in the mood to deal with people.
