We have been sweethearts for two years. We have had all feelings including happiness, sadness, agreement and disagreement…Once, we seriously argued and got angry with each other for a long time and none of us admitted being faulty. We even wanted to separate.
Then he asked me: “Let’s calm down! Each of us should write bad things about each other in a piece of paper. We, then, exchange them and have a mediation to decide if we can reconnect.”
I was really mad so I stared writing for more than 15 minutes. I wrote bad things that I had had to bear for two years. These fully filled my paper. I had to let him know how much I was angry with him.
And then, we exchanged the papers.
Never had I been so ashamed as this time. I just wanted to snatch my paper from his hand but I was not allowed to do that. I burst into tears because his paper was fully filled with: “I love you”. And so far, we haven’t got angry with each other.
