This is not to say that all relationships are bound to go up in flames. It’s a reality check to us that relationships don’t always end up in happy endings. And that our happy ending might just be us, alone, enjoying our solitude. Just like what Kelly Clarkson sang: “doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone.”.
…ybe he slept with that other person because I wasn’t satisfying him enough.”; and the list goes on. We are often blinded by the amount of effort and sacrifice we made to create that relationship, that we didn’t realize the relationship is crumbling down. We are afraid what others would think of us if we broke up or divorced with our partners, that we forget holding on can hurt more than letting go. We are so afraid of being single, of being alone.
