It's funny but it's true... we live in a small world. I just had this realization that whoever you meet today has a connection to your past or maybe connected to your future or not at all but the percentage of you bumping into the same person is astronomical!
I was talking to Jack (a new friend) early this morning (around 3AM I guess) about life and relationships. I was amazed to find out that we have so many friends in common and we ended up talking about one of our common friend. Well you see Jack is in this relationship for 14 years and it never was a perfect relationship. Last week he had to end it... well that was the nth time he tried. The reason? He's not happy anymore and he wants to move on with his life. The only problem is this... how do you leave something that has been a part of your life for 14 years? How do you let go of the person who still loves you? How do you say to the person to stop committing suicide everytime you try to throw the towel?
Jack met someone last January... someone he thought is his perfect match. He fought for their love but things had to end. Last week he told everyone (well his close friends) that it's over and he wants to move on. Now that gave his "perfect match" a light of hope. Small hope that they could finally be together. But how do you get into a relationship when you already committed yourself to someone else. It's hard because I'm a friend of Jack, the perfect match, the new lover, and the ex. I know it's confusing but that's how life is... complicated and unfair. But at the end of the day we just have to deal with it.
