This weekend I watched (you guessed it) Must Love Dogs starring Diane Lane & John Cusack. I won’t bore you with the particulars. The part that I want to blog about is when Diane Lane & John’s characters finally go out on a date & he asks her what her story is.
“What do you mean?,” she asks.
He tells her that people are brutally honest when they first meet each other. The problem begins once you’ve been together for awhile, when you get bogged down with the minutiae of everyday life, resentments & water under the bridge. So, he tells her his story, but she doesn’t really tell him hers. She holds back a little. Maybe she forgot they were in the beginning where she could be completely honest! ;D
Well, that’s my point today. I have so many questions in my head dealing with John Cusack’s statement. I’ve found that I have a hard time getting to the heart of things with people I’ve known for a long time. I can no longer be brutally honest. I don’t know how to conquer this problem. I feel like I’m going backwards sometimes. I’m having problems with a long-standing relationship because of this. I know I’ll get past this. I’m looking forward to it!
HERE’S TO 2010!
