I have decided to share a personal story, so here goes....
When I was in my early twenties, I believed I was deeply in love. The magic between us was intense. This was one relationship before I met the man I married.
I travelled with this person in a beat up old Kombie and shared a nomadic lifestyle during the three years we were together. We enjoyed the perfect relationship (if there is such a thing), and an easy going lifestyle.
At one point in our travels, we were forced to find jobs as the money came to an end. I found a job with the Health Department, but my love had difficulty obtaining employment.
This was when the relationship started to break down, the fantasy came to an end and reality set in. After a time of unemployment he pursued a job at the mines, which meant long periods apart, so we decided to break up, and after some heartbreak, I let him go!
