​The table is set, two plates are positioned at a distance, we continue to eat together, but we aren’t getting closer. Each bite is taken in silence, the noise from chewing is the only discussion being had. We don’t even look up from our plates to glance at one another. Why do we continue returning to the table? 


One thought on “Why Do We Continue?

  1. hope or fear. hope that something will change. or fear that we will lose more than we gain. but in relationships, we need more than hope. we need to communicate. we need to see perspective from eachothers eyes. we need to be vulnerable. we nees to learn to accept our flaws. we need to learn the others strength. hope will just become hopeless without the work.
