For all you married/long-term relationship ladies: How do you stay together?
Pardon me for getting serious, but I couldn’t sleep last night, and I was just wondering about this and other things. I can’t really go into what made me wonder this, but how do you know that it’s going to last? Or do you not know, and you’re really just making a semi-educated guess?
It seems like to me that you would both have to always try. You can fight, you can bicker, you can go a while without sex, but you have to both be trying.
It seems like in movies and TV, couples are often portrayed as having a big huge fight and then breaking up. I’m not sure it’s that simple. Maybe sometimes one person stops trying, and the other person gives up on trying to make them care, because in the words of Bonnie Raitt, I can’t make you love me. Or rather, I can’t make you show that love. I can’t discern if it’s still there or went away one day without me even noticing.
I think there has to be a point where you can’t repair it, where you’ve set too far down this other path and can’t go back.
Yes, I took my medication late today. Why do you ask?
Because I will always take an excuse to quote Tegan and Sara at length, here ya go. I’ve loved this song for a while anyway.
Where do you go, with your broken heart in tow?
What do you do, with the leftover you?
How do you know, when to let go?
Where does the good go? Where does the good go?
Look me in the eye and tell me you don’t find me attractive.
Look me in the heart and tell me you won’t go.
Look me in the eye and promise no love’s like our love.
And the line that always breaks my heart:
This love is all I have to give….
Sorry for the downer. I’ll try to be lighter next time. I just…am thinking too much lately.
