How differences can throw two people apart!

"Why do you always need to write down your lyrics on a paper?" I asked, seeing him shuffling around for a notebook. "Your cell phone is just right here." I shoved cell phone in front of his face. "I don't need it." He said swatting my hand aside. "I believe, writing with an ink makes my words and my mistakes all real. I can actually feel where I tripped and slipped. I know then what I broke and how I built it again. It makes me feel proud of myself, you know." He said with a smile. A smile that showed how much he was at peace with himself. Now sitting here all alone, sipping my coffee, when I think about it, it makes me realize how different we were. I am always fond of technology. The "Notes" icon that is on top of my cell phone's wallpaper, is mocking me right now. It's making me realize how incompatible we were. I don't like to look at my mistakes. I never did. I prefer to erase them, than realize how much of a failure I am. However, he was different. He embraced his mistakes and I... I just wanted to forget. This is how we grew distant because I considered him a mistake. He was naive and I was ruthless. This is how I broke his heart because he didn't want to throw away whatever we had. We were poles apart but he still wanted to stay. Even when he himself realized we were nothing alike. Because he held on when I let go. What do you guys think? Should we hold onto a person despite the differences? Won't these differences be a reason for tiffs in the future? Have you ever had such a relationship? What did you do? A lot of questions, I know but it's confusing. Really confusing!

All of us have our differences. It is just a matter of accepting those differences. There is no perfect relationship and everybody will have to work out those differences.

Exactly everyone needs to work out their differences but hasty and poor decisions take the relationship to a point of no return.

@iamnotyourdoctor yes thag is right. That is why it is important to talk it out before making decisions that will make you both regret in the end.
