So today my friend calls me to say that her boyfriend has asked her to move out of their house. Apparently he needs ‘space’. He has assured her that this isn’t The End – they are still together just not living together for the time being, just while he gathers his thoughts and gets that much-needed ‘space’.
I can’t help but think about how wonderful it would be if life was really that easy. If, when the going gets tough, we could simply state that we need a little ‘space’ and all of the so-called problems in our life would move out for a while. Hell, maybe we could evict them for good!
With this in mind, I am going to request that my husband and I have a little space from our tenant that is Crohn’s Disease. I feel that it has over stayed its welcome and, quite frankly, is crowding us. We would like some time (space) to enjoy being us. We don’t need anything fancy, just us. And while I mention it, I hope I don’t seem greedy in asking for Crohn’s friend, Infertility, to take a hike too.
Thanks very much. I look forward to our new-found space together.
