When he was sad, I should have been there to cheer him up (like on valentine’s day with the Guava mastani) and then give him his time to recover.
I should have trusted him more. Believed in him. Should have stopped blaming him for things I knew he has not done.
I should have been his support system. Apart from his friends too. Supported him in all his decisions and say. Stood by him in public and correct him personally when he was wrong.
Appreciated his time that he spent away from his friends for me, to be with me. He gave up his daily routine for me. He gave into my tantrums of being with me every single day. I took away his space.
Shared more of my personal life with him. should have discussed and asked more questions on life goals.
Should have discussed more on expectations, values and way of living and gotten alignment with each other.
Appreciated and respected more. Given him the space he needed. And should have been more truthful and trusted him more. Overall, should have been gentle with him.
