The R word

Relationships. Now this has been the talk of the week, with the numerous conversations I've had with other people. Whether it was about me, someone else's significant other, or just about relationships in general, the talks have been nothing but an eye opener. Now I've been in a couple of relationships myself, and I have to say that throughout the years, I've learned quite a lot about it. From the honeymoon stages to the arguments, I've been there done that. I'm no relationship expert, but I believe that I am pretty knowledgeable when it comes to that department. Although sometimes.. I can't seem to take my own advice. But what really stood out for me though, in these conversations these past few days, is the fact that once a relationship is over and done with, the people we were once so much in love with, and were close to.. become strangers. Back to square one. It's almost like you never knew them at all. You lose touch with what's going on in their lives, how they're doing, and everything else in between. And to think that at some point they were everything you knew eh? I think that's the saddest part about a relationship that did not work out. It is the inevitable path that both parties are on to become strangers. It's funny how that works. You start off as strangers, only to become strangers again later on in life. It's sad, and unfortunately, as couples, we all have to go through that at some point in our lives. Maybe if you're lucky enough, you never have to. obviously, this is not the case for all relationships. This is just one side to it. If both parties are mature about it, and still want to be in each other's lives because you realize that the friendship is much more important to you, then maybe you wouldn't end up being much of a stranger. But for the most part, even if you somewhat still want to be a part of their lives, you end up losing touch eventually. The occasional phonecall or message still stands, but there comes a point in time where that will slowly be gone as well. This is one of the first blog posts I've written, I think, that is entirely about relationships. Just something that's been on my mind lately, which gave me something to blog about lol.
