That is so beautiful & poignant!
You have a real talent!
Maybe it's true, you have to have seen the ugly side of life,
to be able to appreciate it's beauty!
If the relationship is like a roller coaster ride,
only level with all downs & no ups, is it worth it?
Do you feel like you are walking on eggshells all the time,
but it doesn't make any difference?
There always seems to be one person in a bad relationship,
that is the nurturer. Compromising, losing themselves,
trying everything to make it work, becoming exhausted.
They hate to give up, take it as personal failure!
Are you able to sit down when he's not upset & tell him how you feel?
Will he listen, acknowledge your feelings & try to work on things?
If he will, then it's worth giving it a chance.
If not...then not so much!!! Sometimes there is no cure!
Life is too short to miss out on it!
Everyone deserves happiness. At the very least to be content!
Sometimes it might be better to be alone,
than to be 'stabbed in the heart' all the time!
Good luck in your personal journey, whichever path you choose!
