It’s a lesson in showing how much people mean to you instead of assuming your words will work even if your actions don’t match. There are almost 7 billion people in this world. I’m sure others will be more than willing to appreciate the person you do not. And when that happens, all you can do is be pissed at yourself and start taking action from the lesson you just got taught. And hope that the person you were taking for granted is a big enough person to be patient as you learn to do better.
