How do two people co-exist? Co-create? How do two minds, of perhaps like nature but of different backgrounds, belief systems and life paths join together and merge their existence to become a third energy bigger and better and much beyond the capacity they could have achieved on their own?
It is hard to believe it is possible sometimes.
There is only so much we can do. So much we can anticipate out of life, so much we can plan to do on our own, let alone with another person. We must understand they are who they are, and they are entitled to the wandering they dream of. They should strive for everything they want, much like you should too, and if their dreams bring them to a place far away let them go and their love will remain for you forever. Resentment seems to be the killer in a partnership, and the killer of love. One person wants one thing. Compromise happens, but perhaps too much of it ... and then one day one blames themselves for holding the other back, and the partner is angry because they let all of it happen.
Life will always happen the way it must. There will be life lessons in all instances and circumstances. Perhaps you'll be with your current partner for the rest of your life, perhaps you'll find many more to come before you learn the lessons you must.
Perhaps I'll be with my current partner for the rest of my life, perhaps I'll find many more to come before I learn the lessons I must.
