Bam! I threw my laptop down and started scrolling through mobile. Just another fight we had today for no reason at all. I took a deep breath and started talking to this lady I was instantly connected to. I explained her my problem, to which she had a brilliant reply.
“I realised that you cannot just wake up one day and fall out of love. Imagine how different your life would have been if they never stepped into your life. There are so many memories you build with someone over a period- be it bad or good, some horrible movie or some food that went horribly wrong, sharing hot chocolate late at night or cuddling up to someone after a long day at work. You need that in your life.
Some day you will run into this soul who is not exactly how your expected your partner to be. You will unfold something new about them every day, and there are going to be the moment when your world will flip upside down, and you can’t do anything about it. You will love them, hate them and all but will never regret meeting them. You always fall for personality, and everything else is just Bonus.
You are allowed to be mad; you are authorised to have that moment in a relationship where you want to stay alone, not eat, crawl on the bed and be by yourself. But only up to a time after that you have to get up, it is the real world, not stepped out of a novel here you fight your battles.”
With these words, she hung up on me, and I called up my partner and said, ‘I’m sorry, Dinner is on me.’
