“So, you both had a bad time, I mean together?”
“Of course not. No, We had great control over our life. Like everybody else, we had our life perfectly in place until maybe, when we have started to worry about justice. It is like a joke, I mean, If you look into it. When we were together I never spotted a single mistake in anything. nothing bothered us. I was Okay with our life. Our Individual freedoms, the minute selfishness prompted me us to divert from the point. Thinking now, I don’t feel bad about walking away. One can argue, If I were to renounce some pleasures or ideologies in order to fit in I could have saved our days. But problems were not that simple. Imagine that a person who has his aspirations set, dreams yet to be fulfilled walking back from his destiny because he has another person, no matter how important, to comfort. We were there. Self love in its most impeccable-low, we were there, we were not ready to move away fro there. Our individual freedom was more powerful and destructive than anything”
Let me tell you something about me and your mom. Once upon a time, we really loved each other, but as time went by, there just got to be all these things, little things, stupid things, that were left unsaid. And all these things that were left unsaid piled up, like the clutter in our storage room. And after awhile, there was so much that was left unsaid, that we barely said anything at all.
