I have my parents to blame for my tainted image of love. When i was sixteen they were divorced. After 22 years of marriage just like that it was over. I remember looking around at my friends, as their parents marriages disentegrated i thought to myself how lucky i was that i had parents who truely loved each other and i would never have to face a broken family. But then one day i cam home and everything changed. My mum left, my Dad was heartbroken and devastated blaming himself for everything that went wrong. Shutting himself away for hours on end, it was hard to see my Dad, someone usually so brave, destroyed in seconds. This is one image that will never escape me. I think about the heart break, is it all worth it? I have only been in one serious relationship that lasted two and a half years and while i can say i loved this person i know i was not in love with them. I don't even know if that makes sense to you, but to me there is a difference. I have been told that this will change, 'when you meet the 'one'', but i don't know. I think i have some pretty whacked up ideas now that will be hard to shake off.
I was thinking about the songs that spell out my feelings on love and relationships.
