The simple moral of this story is that you cannot always get what you want. This is the story of a man; a man who is married for the second time, yet
has found another who has stole his heart. The man struggles everyday with this pain. There is no end in sight. He wonders if this may be his penance
for the horrible things he has done in his past.
The man’s marriage is not well. The only positive aspect is his beautiful and spirited daughter. The wife just does not show her love to the
husband, and does not respect all that he does for the family. She chooses to drink and carry on with friends while the man bathes, feeds, and cares
for the child. The man has grown comfortable with his position as primary care giver for the child, yet he is lonely, and longs for the intimate
relationship that is supposed to exist between man and wife.
Every day the man is let down by the lack of action from his wife. He sinks into depression and detaches from the world. He struggles through life and
wonders if this may be his bad karma reaching up and kicking him swiftly in the rear end. Through his everyday life he comes to know a woman. She is
the caregiver for his child a few days a week. At first he did not know what to think of the woman.
She was recently divorced and has two beautiful daughters. She is a strong woman who has been through hell and back and fights everyday for the
welfare of her children. She has been an excellent caregiver to the man’s child, and an overall great friend. She experienced many of the same
problems in her marriage as the man does in his. Over the course of two years the man and the woman have bonded as friends. The woman seems
compassionate to the man’s situation, and he had grown to care for both her, and her children.
So now the man struggles further. He has come to realize he is in love with the woman who cares for his child yet he cannot abandon his family in
pursuit of his own desires. Not a day goes by that he does not think of her and the possibilities of the future. He dreams of a life with her and them
living together as a family. He also realizes that these dreams will never come true. Something that good is just not possible in this man’s life.
The man cannot and will not leave his family. He has a responsibility to his wife, and even if things are not right he cannot leave her alone. He has
to ensure the safety of his child overall, and sometimes that includes sacrificing his happiness. The man will gladly sacrifice his happiness for his
child’s welfare as he has spent his life sacrificing for others.
The moral of the man’s story is that he walks through life everyday with love for a woman who he will never be with. He carries this pain and tries
to bury it deep when in the presence of others. The pain is so strong at times it consumes the man. Pain is the norm for this man and he expects to
endure much more before he leaves this world. Maybe he deserves this tortures pain, or maybe he just has bad luck. Only time will tell. In the end one
thing sure is true; you can’t always get what you want.
