Conversations 23 - What I Don't Understand

It is often said that you should let go of the people you love. The seemingly vague interpretation of 'let go' translates to setting them free from the relationship that weighs them down.

But what about the feelings of the other partner? Are they not worthy of the time and attention that they deserve?

You and I have always had contrasting approaches to make our relationship work. While I continue to try to give you all the freedom that you seek, you've been the one to tie me by your side with consistent efforts of making things work.

And yet, we continue to complain about the actions of one another, citing the lack of responsibilities as a potential deal breaker in the future. Our conflicting opinions don't take much to become arguments that would lead to fights, then silence, followed by introspection, understanding and a gain in respect for each other.

In fact, our differences have been so vast yet so effective that I often wonder if people should focus on finding partners that complement their own ideas so that they can experience a perspective that would otherwise be locked for eternity.

On the flipside, I doubt if it is the morals or our desires that make us to what we do and that brings the entire argument down.

I mean, if we really are this different, it's only a matter of time that things would stop working themselves out and no amount of understanding would solve them for us. If our desires continue to infect our actions, frustration is bound to creep in.

And that means that people should avoid those with conflicting views of love and life to avoid friction in the future.

Or maybe, we should stop worrying too much about how others should work their love stories and focus on the special thing that we have.

Perhaps, we'll never know why it continues to work out for us. I'm just glad that it does.
