Laundry On Sundaes

Every beginning is only a sequel, after all, and the book of events is always open halfway through.

What is a failed relationship? These days people talk about failed marriages and failed relationships, but most of the time, what they really mean is merely a marriage or a relationship that has simply ended. Are the two really the same? Is a relationship that ends necessarily mean that it had failed? I don’t believe so. Failure means that someone did something wrong. But you can do everything right and a relationship can still end. Some relationships last and some don’t. Sometimes two people are only meant to be together for so long. Sometimes a relationship comes to an end simply because it had run its course. The love is gone, the happiness of being in each other’s company is no longer there, to stay would only put both people in misery. That would be a failed relationship. Not one that ends, as long as it ends when both people realize that it has ended. So end, don’t fail. If more people are able to make the distinction between the two, perhaps they wouldn’t be so afraid of “failure,” and love fearlessly.
