[muse] + UNFINISHED, TO BE EDITED
Have you ever came across people who seem bittersweet about relationships? - a pessimistic or paranoid angle about how things are going on and how they'll turn out to be (in relationships, that is)? From my observation, this state of mental attitude is almost always because of a previous relationship that turned sour. (yeah i know, it doesn't take much brains to figure that out)
i guess the most practical advice to give would be to imply that time will heal; just live and learn, or on a more no-nonsence note, that it isn't fair for the partner to be judged in such a prejudiced manner. But then again, even the most rational of people can be bent by the fragility of emotions when faced with such strong ties to the heart; more-so if the incident that can potentially taint the individual has occured more than once; repeating itself with relationships from the past.
Relationships are like ladders - each of us were designed to climb, and each of our ladders were designed differently in turn; our goal to arrive at the top: - to reach the person that we were meant to be with. But along the way, sad relationships are the steps on the ladder do break - Do we get up, and continue the journey? stay at the rung we are comfortable on? Well i guess it all depends on how short or long YOUR ladder is.
