RELATIOSHIPS: Living it or Carrying it

Not long ago, I bought a fine piece of porcelain flower-vase. The porcelain was one of the finest quality, unparalleled in design and covered with exotic work. I loved it so much that I kept it on my study table so that it was always within my site. One day one of younger cousin visits me and drops the vase from the table. It came to me as a real shock! But God’s grace it wasn’t totally broken, just a small chip of it comes out from near the mouth of the vase. I mange it stick it with a fevikwik and keep it on the table I such a way that its repaired side faces the wall, away from the eyes of the world with just me knowing the truth. One fine morning I notice that a crack has developed throughout the length of the vase. I felt heart broken! My mother asks me to throw away my most cherished possession as it is a bad omen to keep broken or cracked glass in house. I am in a fix!! What should I do?......

Dear friends this is not just another piece of story. It has much more to offer if you are able to read between the lines!

For those who are still in a fix, just think of the precious flower vase as relationship between two people. Or better out it up as you share a very good relationship with someone. It is one of yours most cherished possession. But one day you begin to feel that the things are actually not the way you thought them to be. The relationship is strained due to some unavoidable reasons and things are not the same as earlier. You somehow mange to patch up the things, so that the world does not know about it and continue to live with it. But not before long you realize that there is a complete break down and you cannot carry the burden any further but you don’t want to give it up.

You are in a dilemma! You don’t know how to cope up with such a situation. Then what should one do? Probably, it’s the most appropriate time to draw the line. Living in a situation that is suffocating you is not one of the wisest thing in the world, but giving it up is not easy either. It’s hard but life can’t wait, it has to move on.

The choice is yours: either to cry your heart out for a day or two or keep sobbing through out your life!!

Life teaches us with examples, we just need to have a good insight. I am really amazed by your ability to observe.
I am in such a relation which I know I can't continue with. But, It's really hard to know which way awaits me.

sometimes a second chance is the best gift that you can give someone you love and if you love someone, sometimes its the best gift you can give yourself. forget what the world sees, forget what the superstitious beliefs says; for relationships are not objects.
