My friends ended their relationship Saturday. I shouldn't be as concerned as I am but I do feel bad for both of them. They have been through so much together and it's hard to see them just give it up. They are still talking though and hopefully something good will come out of it.
This event made me start to think about my relationship. Isn't that funny how when something happens to someone else, you start to re-evaluate your life and see if it is up to terms? Every relationship is different and you can't compare yourself or your situation to anybody else's. You have to work through your own stuff and make sure it means something to both of you. I feel like we tend to take people for granted and once that appreciation, happiness, love or whatever is not expressed as it should be, then we start to take a turn for the worse. We start to find a way out because we are not being noticed. Instead of reminding each other that we appreciate one another, we tend to do the opposite and slide out of the relationship to find something or someone else that will notice us more.
I don't know. Some people are meant to be and others, I guess, are not. I do believe that we need to be more aware of each other and the balance, energy, and emotions need to be expressed and recognized. I guess in the end, it's up to you whether it's something worth working for.
"Bottom line is: it's couples who are truly right for each other wade through the same crap as everybody else, but the big difference is they don't let it take them down. One of those two people will stand up and fight for that relationship every time, if it's right and they're real lucky. One of them will say something."
