Ask the Author: Question & Response
I’m in a long term relationship and I feel like I messed it up by not treating my boyfriend well. I didn’t treat him badly (abuse him physically or mentally). I was just neglectful because I’m a busy person and didn’t spend much time with him. He told me he is not happy with me because of this (can’t blame him one bit) but he loves me and would like to work on the relationship. I’ve been working on the issues, but I just get the feeling from him that he’s going to be non-compliant and unappreciative of my efforts and things aren’t going to work out. If I had treated him better in the first place, it may not have ended up like this. Now I feel guilty because God gave me the person I have been waiting for all my life and I messed it all up by taking my own path, by tending to my needs instead of the path God made for me to be with him and tending to his needs as well. If we break up, I will have to live with the guilt and feel really bad for a long time and have it haunt me for the rest of my life. How would you interpret my situation and what do you think?
