Ash Posted January 23, 2004 Share Posted January 23, 2004 It's a confusing thing sometimes, we can't just take a look at a relationship and slot it into the 'good' pile or the 'bad' pile. There are too many different things in play. If a single aspect is missing, is it bad? In my case, it wasn't a bad relationship versus a good relationship scenario at all. Until it happened, things weren't that bad. There was really only a single facet missing, and to be honest, I was not even truly aware of what it really was, nor was my wife. We both thought I was clinically depressed. The realization of what was truly wrong came later. By trying to stay and work in a relationship that wasn't ideal, I had thought I was doing the right thing, not doing the wrong. How do you ever really know? Does this mean to say if you do have to work on a relationship, you'd be better off letting it go, walk away and be done with it? I think we do need to work on relationships that aren't good, even ones that are definitely bad. I don't like to feel I was contributing to something negative by doing that. But is what's being said mean that if we're working on a relationship, aren't we simply flirting with disaster by not simply declaring it over? Yes, SweetiePie's been hurt, no doubt. She was also getting irate because (like now) people weren't answering her request. There were some answers back there, now the thread has evolved. Quote Link to comment
