A friend of mine mentioned to me that he had been encountering some relationship issues. He said that he feels that that partnership is almost stretched like a rubber band near its breaking point. I only hope that he and his partner snap back to normal, instead of hurtling towards opposite directions, much like in a tug-of-war with the rope breaking in the middle.
My general advice on making decisions — don’t make any hasty decisions while you are in an emotionally charged state or running on an empty stomach. The “or” part comes in handy during trips to the supermarket.
Another friend mentioned to me that a person should learn to love oneself, as well, to be more effective in a relationship. Yeah, I think a firm appreciation of the “self” tends to make one less needy of the other person. Imagine the lunacy of having another person “completing” the other. So, what happens when one isn’t intimately with another person? Does that mean one is condemned to eternal misery?
Well, to that I say blessed are the narcissists. And to that I say, blessed are narcissists with split personalities for they can have affairs with themselves. And to that I say, blessed are the narcissistic human contortionists with split personalities for they can reach those spots no one would dare think of reaching.
And to that, my friend said she’ll practice more yoga.
