If your significant other says they will change but doesn't. How would you address the issues?

If you and your significant other have agreed that communication within your relationship has been very poor over the past several months. Almost to the point where you had to distance yourself from them for a week and then spoke with each other and put everything out on the table.

You come to find out there are issues outside of your relationship that are effecting them (issues being anxiety and depression medication) and then agree to make the changes and communicate more. Fast forward several weeks only to find out that little to no communication is happening and you're hardly speaking to each other (AGAIN)*. (you both don't live together so texting is the best option)* you're back to being the only one reaching out.

Being mindful you have had small conversations at the end of the day and into the evening but nothing much more then that. Conversations used to happen quite frequently during the morning, afternoon and evening hours. So this is odd that they're no longer happening.

What would you do?
How would you address this?
Do you think the person is just very busy or are they consciously ignoring you?
Possibly slipping back into old ways?

    She doesn't realize the importance of it because she's probably comfortable and doesn't think you'll leave her.

    Best thing for you is to move on, if she catches up... Lucky her. If not... No break up feels good... it sucks being single... but you gotta respect yourself man. good luck being strong and having the courage to be kind about it.
