Familiarity

Sometimes familiarity can be taken to the extreme, and not in a good way. I guess that's where the saying comes from: Familiarity breeds contempt. But really, I think this can be avoided by instilling a conscious effort not to slack off in relationships (whether platonic or otherwise), not to take people for granted, not to be so conceited as to think that because someone is a good friend or an amazing life partner, you can get away with being unchecked, acting rude, being unapologetic, or refusing to make an effort. At the tail end, regret may come... as it does for me now.
