    Seeing eye to eye isn’t always easy,
    Respecting the inevitability of disagreement
    forgetting that compromise
    should be a variable in the marital equation –
    and a solution is yet to be found
    as x and y are unsolvable due to lack of communication
    and tendencies to lock down emotions
    because a few toes have been stepped on…

    Reaching out with silent hearts
    while vocal chords have a temporary case of
    laryngitis…

    Or is it sparengitis?
    The condition in which the opinion is held
    to SPARE the other’s feelings,
    mentally blocking individual perceptions of truth
    to keep from emotionally bruising fragile egos
    hoping to ease the situation and quicken its end,
    but surprisingly it resurfaces again and again
    because it was never formally dealt with…
    It was hidden, surpressed, camouflaged
    dressed up, played down and eventually forgotten –
    until the next time the painful reminder rears its ugly head…

    And the cycle continues,
    each round burying the hope of solving x or y
    because z keeps entering the picture and confusing things
    rearranging things…

    The hardest part is realizing where meeting in the middle
    is a sacrifice for the sake of peace
    or just a sacrifice of self,
    (if there is a such thing as self anymore).

    Seeing eye to eye isn’t always easy
    but it is realistic,
    and in the real world, x and y are known
    and therefore solvable.

    SunShyne!

    Thank you sweetie! I don't know... I may have been a counselor in another life, but in this one I think I'm just the guinea pig that life likes to experiment on. Thanks for the luv big sis!:)
