The Saddest Truth.

I found this poem floating around on FB today. I tracked down the author because I was curious where it came from and I always want to give credit where it is due.
By Beau Taplin

I found it frighteningly true, somewhat sad and incredibly pertinent.
I've always told rob he ignited a fire that only he can quench.

So what is to be done? I truly believe it's a crime not to honour that fire. How is it possible that something so compelling is so taboo? Making that connection is something that can be infinitely good for us. It can make us happy. Why should something that makes us happy be so forbidden?
Making connections is just about the most important thing we can do in life. Why hold back?

The problem is explaining it to those who don't see it, understand it or have that opportunity.
The hardest thing is explaining it to the one we've been spending our lives with.

It is true, very true, until....

....until what?

Until you have kids

To break the heart of another adult is harsh, but forgivable, but to do that to a child, to leave them, when they are bound to you tighter than any bond, how can you do that? I have debated this countless times, for a million reasons, but have not yet found an answer.

Chasing that connection, that fire, for me,for myself, would be easy until I look at the others who are involved,, others who would be hurt.

I look for the fire, the flames, the inferno, but I settle for a match lit in the dark night, to avoid the risk of burning those around me.

Advizor: I think it's just a matter of making the decision of whether it would be a healthy move. Whether it's healthy for you and healthier than what you have, even if kids are involved. Kids pick up on unhappiness, they see it and it can damage them more than a split in the family. This is not your case necessarily, I am speaking in general terms. I have witnessed my own parents' terrible relationship and then separation and I speak from that experience.
