The Cold Half

“There is so much emotional shit I can put up with. That’s why I need to get away from you every now and again.”

“And you wonder why I feel so alone.”

Every relationship needs an emotional void. It’s not that it’s a bad thing, it’s just that someone needs to stand grounded to reality for things to work. However, in times where there are two sides of the extreme, you can’t always rely on the one you love for the support you need. But what happens when there is no one left to turn to in times of darkness?

Is the perfect relationship worth fighting the demons alone?

  1. Everybody has their way of dealing with emotional issues. IMHO, the important thing is, the person is dealing with it, albeit in different ways. 🙂

  2. “Is the perfect relationship worth fighting the demons alone?”

    No

    But maybe the quest for perfect is unreasonable.

  3. There are ways in going about an issue, no matter how difficult it is for either party. Nobody’s perfect, there’s no such thing as a “perfect” relationship.

    To answer your question, I’d say no. If you really love someone, you don’t leave him/her to deal with the emotional shit alone. Yeah, there are times when either party just have to back off and give the other some space, but to a limit.

  4. Helen: As I’m trying to find a way to deal with mine.

    Cooper: Unless there isn’t a need for a quest. You already have it. The perfect balance of opposites and equals. The catch is, you can’t let those opposites stray too far. You always have to watch yourself.

    Tine: There is no perfect people to be in a relationship with. Just perfect relationships between imperfect people. The complementary piece of the puzzle. Of course, adding too much to it often breaks the puzzle. Adds to the picture things that shouldn’t be there.

  5. Perfect as in, it works. The way we complement each other in terms of what we can do is…well…perfect. We both inspire each other to do better at the things we do. Maybe the real question is :

    “Is it too much to ask for more?”

  6. I hope it works out honey…I would hate to see you hurt as bad as you were before…~raises fist at world~

  7. Vidar: Love isn’t always enough and it certainly can’t solve every problem. 🙂

    Tracy: Thanks. 🙂 I’ll be fine. This is something that I have to deal with on my own term.

  8. My answer is no..when you are in a relationship..the emotional is part of ONEness…I will be more than happy to listen to him and make every effort to make him happy !

  9. Sorry to respond to an old blog :).. but I think in the end we are all alone and leave this world alone. I’m not saying we don’t have real relationships – but I think other people can’t really feel for you completely. Meaning if you get sick, other people will be like “sorry you don’t feel good, can I get you something..” but only you are really experiencing that sickness – only you feel that bad.
    When your on your deathbed, it is only you that is dieing and you do it alone.
    Other people can be there, holding your hand etc, but the final act is yours only.
    So my point, accepting that on some level makes you stronger and allows you to appreciate others without expectations of getting more than possible.
