No relationship is ever a waste of time

No relationship is ever a waste of time. If it didn’t bring you what you want, it taught you what you don’t want.

Its never a waste of time because it will taught you so many things , will let you feel emotions unknown before and see another person in another perspective and foremost ; to love someone possibly more than you have love yourself.

If you know what you don't want, it  illuminates the negatives & narrows your choices for what you
DO want.

Relationships aren’t about wants or wants not. Relationships are about commitment -commitments to relations of blood, commitment to work, commitment to relation made with God as witness etc etc. People have the opportunity to assess their wants or not wants before entering into relationships not after.

It taught me I don’t need someone who doesn’t want to put my feelings into consideration even when I’ve done things above and beyond for him.
Taught me what i dont want, but the reality is it took two, and I had to examine myself, to know what i do want, and make changes in self so i do not take my behaviours into another relationship.

True, as long as you learn from it and don't keep repeating the same type of failed relationships. Some people never learn from failed relationships, they just keep repeating the same mistakes over and over and over again - It can be exhausting!
