Daily Prompt: Happy Endings
Tell about something you have tried to quit. Did you go cold turkey, or for gradual change? Did it stick?
Show THE END.
I got married very young. I was one scatterbrained person. I would blurt out whatever thought entered my brain. I couldn’t keep anything to myself. I had no one, from whom I could learn a thing or two.
I would tell any problems I had, keeping nothing to myself. A husband is a friend but there is a limit to everything he should be told. It is better to keep your innermost feelings to yourself. I didn’t do that.
A husband and wife do have spats. There is a saying that dishes do clang together occasionally. To me it would seem the end of the world. I would broadcast it to my friends. Some of my friends wouldn’t keep my confidential misgivings to themselves. I would feel embarrassed later on.
Gradually with the passage of time I realized what I can share and where I have to keep quiet. I started a diary. Whenever I was feeling miserable, I would pour my thoughts into it. My inner most feelings remained private.
I am glad I found a way to keep my fears and qualms to myself.
