Is that what it was?
In my search for answers – the Why’s and the How Could You’s – I’ve so desperately wanted an answer. An answer to the Krakatoa moment when Alex left.
Is it the selfish gene? That feeling the world ‘owes’ us and so to take is the only answer. Are men worse than women? They can’t be because if women stuck to the moral high-ground then the men would find it harder to run. With no-one to run to with the offer of all that sex and passion the incentive wouldn’t be so great!
Is the ‘pull’ of lust as great for these “Other Women”, who feel they have the ‘right’ to grab any man they fancy regardless of the damage they inflict. Do they really justify their actions with the age old phrase of “I only want you to be happy” which, in fact, means “I have a right to be happy too and by the way, the way I’ve decided to be happy is to screw your husband so bad luck you”.
Do they actually realise what it’s like to be treated with so little respect. Would they enjoy being on the receiving end of the destruction. Of course not. They don’t think about that.
To smash a marriage is something which shouldn’t be taken lightly. It is, so often, these days. Are we becoming so selfish in our desires for instant gratification that actually our moral compass has swung out of line and we are losing our abilitiy to navigate and so reach our true destinations. The destination that really does give us the high – that brilliant place we get to by effort, determination, compassion and giving.
