Watching a Relationship Trainwreck
Have you ever seen something happening but had no way of stopping it? I have. It’s an unsettling and upsetting feeling. You wish you could have done something yet you couldn’t. I was thinking about this feeling as I have been watching the demise of relationships via Facebook. (Yes, Facebook again.) I know when mine was falling apart last year people could probably see it coming through my musical posts. I didn’t necessarily say what was happening, but sometimes I would post music videos that suited my mood. I have noticed the musical posts of friends lately. Then I noticed their relationship status changes. It is so revealing. It is also heartbreaking. You watch this and there is nothing you can do but watch it unfold. It is so sad to watch these lives disintegrate before you. Thankfully not everyone puts all their drama out there and they don’t tell everything that has happened. But it just makes me hurt for them. Some of these people have been married almost 20 years. It does make me sit back and just shake my head. I don’t have the right to ask questions but I do care about them. I hurt for them.
Have you ever seen this? It is like watching a trainwreck. You wish so much you could stop it and yet there is nothing you can do.
