A Tale of Two Cities

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only." - Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

No matter how hard you try, some relationships will just never work out. You may wonder what once attracted you and how it all went so wrong. Here's the thing when someone cries love, just like when the little boy cried wolf eventually you stop believing them.
Looking back now I was a fool to believe his words. If you walk away and never look back, there never was trust or love. Yes, there are times when it seems like everything is working against you, but if you give up were you ever really fighting for anything? If all the words of encouragement were simply errors in judgement later corrected with the bitter truth. If you cared about someone you would think before you spoke or wrote. You would remember the good times before creating really bad times. You would embrace the challenges and not walk away without a care in the world. You wouldn't damage someone who you knew from the start was already damaged goods.
Guess I wasn't prom queen material after all, but then again who said you were the king of anything?
