… you say to someone you haven’t seen in a while? Someone you haven’t talked to, someone that you sometimes want to forget about. Someone who has hurt you and your family for years. Do you hug them? Hit them? What if that someone is family? I just don’t know.
The locks are installed. Things are hidden. But that’s not even the worst of it. The worst is living with someone that you just can’t trust. No matter how bad you want to. It’s the stress that builds up in your chest, slowly, over time. The worry of when, or how, he will snap and everything will go to hell like it did the last time, and the time before.
Seeing someone you love degrade into someone you hate. But you can never truly, because deep down, you still hope they will return to being the person they once were. Should I give him a chance? Who knows, maybe this time, this will be the time that he turns his life around. But I just don’t know. My gut tells me one thing, my heart another.
As the saying goes, ‘Only time will tell.’ I just hope this time it won’t be so bad.
