Falling In Love (For All The Wrong Reasons)

  • May 30, 2010

For whatever reason, people I have lost touch with 10+ years ago have decided after all these years to get back in contact with me. Truth be told, I created my website as a means of staying in contact with people I know and as a means to deliver updates as to what I’m undertaking at the moment.

These few people I once called friends at one time in my life; fast forward 10 years and they’re all working high-profile, high-paying jobs and married to extremely wealthy and successful spouses. They’ll tell you that they’re happy but if you look at a few recent photos, you can see just how miserable and stressed-out they are.

They have all aged far beyond their years and married not for love, but instead for financial gain. After awhile a few of my old friends have confessed, in confidence, their desire to move on because as they see it, they have never felt so unhappy their entire lives.

I don’t do anything simply because of money. I won’t work a job I can’t stand, or do something I don’t feel comfortable doing, and I certainly won’t marry someone I’m not in love with just because they have a little money. I follow my heart, not my wallet.

Money is something that has helped me acquire almost all of my worldly possessions, but it’s not money or property that keeps me and Angie together; our relationship is based upon love and trust. But even though we have a loving relationship, it’s not always perfect. When it comes to human relationships, our own human experiences for that matter, nothing is truly perfect.

Wiccans strive to form bonds based upon perfect love and perfect trust, and although it’s pretty much a total impossibility, it’s definitely something worth trying for. Angie doesn’t consider herself a Wiccan, but she believes in perfect love and perfect trust despite always falling just short of this idealism.
