Ruminations of my “significant others” now a few years past….I lost my last two loves due to my alcoholism….
The truth is…neither one of us can fulfill or complete the other. Our own fulfillment and completion can only come from within ourselves. The best that another can do, if we are fortunate, is give us company, comfort, sympathy, even pity…as we go along our own journey and path. And if together, keep our feet warm together at night, and with luck, hold our hand as we pass from this form of being that we call “Life”, to the next. That is it.
We are each individually responsible for just ourselves. As one, we are born to this world…and as one we shall leave it, company (preferred) or not.
