familiarity breeds taking others for granted?

Would you agree that familiarity breeds taking our partner/spouse for granted? I would say i agree with this thought. I think that when we get use to our partner/spouse/ or family members being around that we can start to take them fro granted. Not that we are intentionally meaning to do it. But I think it does happen. If they are not around then we miss them, and we start to think and see things differently. So I think for my family I have to be conscientious about how they are around all the time and not take that for granted by showing appreciation for them and the things that they do for the benefit of our family.

you know what dominique, i agree with you. we always take advantage of people who are around us at all times. we don't realize it but we do. as you've said when they're not around we miss them and when they come back we try to make up for it. and later on goes back to our old ways. maybe it's human nature.

Hello, Dominique25, Nice to meet you. Yes I completely agree with you Familiarity does breed taking others for granted. This is wrong but it does happen. People who are always there to help us are not given importance but people whi are far away and look attractive or are not-around-all-the-time kind of people are given more importance. No wonder why the snobs are more famous in High School. No wonder why we do not say No to our colleague but we can snub our family members. This is wrong, I think people should always recognize the importance of family members lest they leave us.
