Breaking Up 101 – A Relationship Confessional

goodlife guide

By Eric Mayes

We all run into people claiming that they would rather be alone in life but we all know that they’re lying. It is natural to desire a mate. Since the dawn of time we were made to love, look at Adam and Eve. That’s why we all need a state of relationship. Whether it’s a hug, holding hands, sex, motivation or the slightest touch on the shoulder for comfort.

There are also those relationships that exist strictly for support of an individual or group. Personally, I have found that some of life’s closest relationships exist only for a season and others end for a number of different reasons. Whatever happened to the days of hearing about couples being married for thirty and forty years, or just being committed to one person and not looking for another lover on the side. It is easier said than done. People should stop trying to find reasons to leave a relationship and work on their issues to strengthen their bond.

The grass may seem greener but it may also be the biggest mistake of your life that can never be undone. When I began writing these series, I was somewhat reluctant because of the hurt and distress that the characters endure in their relationships. It’s all masked by that beautiful word called “Love.” This thought process put me on a roller coaster of emotions as well. It forced me to confront some of my own issues not only in my personal life but also, in relation with the people in this sequence. We’ve been taught as children to think before we speak, so in the same right think before you react.

Remember the old saying of making lemonade out of lemons or simply just making it work no matter what. Think about your partner and not yourself and I’m sure they’ll do the same. Please don’t do or say things to your partner only to get the same in return. All of your gestures should be done from the heart and your good deeds will be rewarded.

Have you ever just kissed your partner just because? If not try it and see how they react. We spend millions of dollars on gadgets to make our lives easier. Do you text or email him or her in the middle of the day just to say I love you or you are just thinking of them. How about buying that special someone his or her favorite candy bar, rent a movie or buy a bottle of wine? Do you stop by the store and pick up a greeting card just to show how much you care about them?

We don’t need to wait for Valentines Day! The one-day of the year to show someone that you love him or her forever. Life is too short to spend it alone. Now, there are times that financially we can’t purchase things that we would like to for our partners in life. So, you have to think of other creative ways of showing that you care. Love can be shown in many different ways.

In this succession, you will see several different angles of people twisting their words and meanings of love. At the end, you will see if it was for personal gain or for the true meaning of love. You will be emotionally torn between the good guys and the bad guys. You will also hate the ones that hurt their feelings.

However, as you enjoy this series, take or leave from it what you will. For these are loosely base true stories that were captured in my mind and I’ve finally decided to set them free.
