The Splitting Roads

A lady was walking on this road when a truck slowed down to follow her pace. The truck driver looked at the lady and fell instantly in love with her smile.

He invited her to hop on the truck and he will bring her to wherever she wants. She did not accept the offer. However, he did not give up. He continued to drive his truck at her walking pace.

He noticed her wearing high heels and asked her about it. She explained so she could see further. He then offered her a pair of running shoes and said that though one could see further with a pair of high heels, in return, her legs will sore. Why not wearing a pair of comfortable running shoes and enjoy the journey?

After thinking through, she took the shoes from him, thanked him and continued walking.

As the time passed, the man saw the lady getting tired and trying to catch her breath. He could no longer see her this way and tried to convince her, promised that he will drive her to wherever she wants. After much trials, she started to believe him and hopped onto his truck. He helped her to take her baggage onto the truck.

They traveled miles and miles together. The journey was happy and wonderful. They laughed together. Cried together. Whatever obstacles they encountered, they faced it together, solved together. 

After traveling together for a few years, the man suddenly said that he is tired of her and wanted to stop and go elsewhere with another woman. He dropped her at the roadside in the middle of nowhere and drove off. Without looking back.

The lady, not knowing where she is could only stood there, feeling helpless and hurt. She does not know anyone, not familiar with the local language. However, she has to find a shelter to rest for a while before continuing her supposedly own journey..

And you know what?

I am the lady and he is the man.

How are you? Are you still living there? The unfamiliar land? I feel like crying after reading your posts on 'How are you?' and 'The Splitting Roads' .... I guess, maybe it's because I feel what you're feeling too since my 10 years relationship with the one i love just ended. It hurts ... and it hurts so much seeing him moving on so happily with someone else and as if our 10 years mean nothing to him. And the funny part is that ... He puts all the blame on me. Anyway, I hope you don't mind but I would really like to share some quotes with you ...

1. No relationship is ever a waste of your time. If it didn't bring you what you want, it taught you what you don't want.

2. Eventually all the pieces fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment and know that everything happens for a reason.

3. A woman has got to love a bad man once or twice in her life to be thankful for a good one.

4. One day, someone will walk into your life and make you see why it never worked out with anyone else.

5. God sometimes removes people from your life to protect you. Don't run after them.

6. God doesn't give you the people you want, he gives you the people you need. To help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you and to make you the person you were meant to be.

7. The scariest part in being loved by someone is the uncertainty that it may stop anytime.

8. Never cry for the person who hurts you. Just smile & say "thanks for giving me a chance to find someone better than you".

9. When you have found your reason to walk away, don't look back, just keep on walking. It's better to get lost moving on than to get stuck and stranded broken.

Hope you like the quotes. Have a nice day. Smile~!

Hello KeLs!

First of all, thanks for reading my posts. I just wanted to get them out of my heart to make myself feel better.

Secondly, thanks for dropping a comment. Not everyone will do so. I am really thankful and guess what? After reading those quotes, they really make sense. However, ultimately, I need time to heal..

Yes, I am still in this unfamiliar land but trying to live my own life. I had moved out from his place and currently renting a room outside. He was not bothered at all which really upset me but what can I do about it?

I just have to move on..
