TITLE: The Mundane Matters

They all say that the only thing permanent in this world is change. It’s true. And one of the changes that we often have to face was how people just come and go in and out of our life. This is often hard because there are some that we would really love to stay forever, for as long as we live. Though some of the reasons why people leave were inevitable, there were also times when we could’ve prevented it from happening.

We were so lax, thinking that it will go away in time. That maybe what we said didn’t really hurt the other person that much or maybe remembering some special occasion in this person’s life was not that important at all. They’re just simple things; unsaid ‘I’m sorry’’, ‘happy birthday’, ‘I love you’, etc. But we all have our last straws, so they say. In time these people will tire of our insensitivities and when this happens, sooner or later they won’t find any more reasons to stay.

This could have been avoided if only we have paid enough attention to the mundane things that build or ruin a relationship.

Yes, it's the little things that matter.
Describing actual characters would help this story become real.
Keep writing.

This is all so true... even the littlest things, the things we think are so mundane, really do matter, and especially in relationships. Thank you for the reminder.
James Dixon01/10/08
A good point that was clearly presented. Well done.

How absolutely true!! Very good idea for this subject!

True--now give it some "punch" by giving a personal example.
Beckie Stewart01/11/08
Ahh, the reality of this is only too painful as relationships have been lost by those who hurt others and even when told, will let the relationship go.

You presented this well.
Annie Sledge01/11/08
Beautiful and so true. Thank you.
