I just had a relationship end. Two nights of intense, heartfelt and completely candid talking culminated in us saying goodbye. There just wasn’t enough chemistry. And we faked it for a long time. There’s a lot more to it than that, but there always is, isn’t there? It’s never a simple story. Yes, it can be broken down into the basic elements, but the whole story still exists. That deeper story is very real to the people living it, but it’s not that important to the spectators. And that’s ok. No one else but the two people involved can ever truly know what happened or what was felt. Other people can relate based on their own experiences, but it’s never quite the same, really.
That’s the good thing about relationships that end – you will learn from the experience because something about it will be different than any experience you’ve ever had.
