We are all guilty of having wishful thoughts while we are in a relationship. We do not see the relationship for what it is, but rather focus on what it could be. We hope that everything is going to work out in the end. However, sooner or later we have to smell the roses and realize that we have been living a lie for a while. We have to face the truth about our relationship and recognize it for what it is. Sooner or later we understand that we cannot change our partner and that we cannot really change ourselves to accomodate them. Also, we will realize that we do not really want to change ourselves or our partner. At this time, we will need to either move on or face a lifetime of misery.
Yesterday, I have had the misfortune to experience an accident around the Herald Square area in New York City. I was crossing the street along the Macy’s side walk and suddenly tripped and fell on my face. I stepped on one of the many small holes inside the sidewalk. The muscle in my ankle was torn and I could not get up for several minutes. I was in extreme pain. The police officers offered me a chair, but later told me to move out of the way because apparently I was stopping traffic. Later that day I ended up in the emergency room. My foot was severely swollen and I was in a lot of pain. I was prescribed some pain killers and told not to walk for the next two weeks. I lost my new job as a result. I am thinking about seeking legal action against the city. If anyone has had a similar experience, please feel free to leave a comments.
