stranded all right..
in every relationship, there always comes a time that you’d wonder where the hell this is going. or if you’re actually moving forward, in the first place. or if you’re just there, stranded.
right now, i know we’re not making progress. we’ve been so busy with our individual lives that we haven’t noticed that we’re already drifting out of each other’s sight. we seldom exchange messages or updates. the last i heard from you was your start of classes, and that too was so vaguely put. i was wondering if you’re all right, if school sucks as usual, or if you have new friends over there. maybe you’re also wondering exactly the same things about me. the thing is, we lost the time to chat. worse, maybe we lost the interest, too.
i’m not saying that this is utterly bad for us. yeah, maybe we still want to feel one another’s presence. maybe i’m longing for your care. perhaps, you do too. we may think that we’re not as important to each other as before. well, that is bad, i know. and sad. totally.
but we should realize that this will do us so much good, if we go the right way. being stranded like this means we have all the time to think and to breathe. for we have all the space we want. we don’t have to be beside each other all the time. it will just make the relationship monotonous and static. sometimes, we have to stop for a while so that we can know where the hell we really want to go.
and if we both decide to move forward, then the better.
relationships are not always easy. they’re not always full of sweet memories and cheezy lines. they’re not always bombarded with romantic ideas. there’s no one way here. you face different paths. you make different choices. and once you get stranded, the choices that will come on top of your head are the choices you need to answer right away. but these are also the choices that need a long time to be realized, a long series of fighting with your emotions, and a long silence to let you hear your own thoughts.
hold on or let go?
