Last Week #75 - Story Relationships

I've been thinking about my Main Character's relationships recently. I've been thinking about the woman who needs help and keeps asking for it. Does she really need my character's help, or can she help herself? How can she learn to help herself? Is everything out of her control?

She reacted to the anger, to my stance, taking a step back. Sadness filled her eyes again, "Taryn, I'm so sorry." 

"Ya, Kaitlyn, I bet you are." I clenched my jaw. 

"I just want you, need you, in my life." I could see the tears pooling, threatening. 

I hardened my stance, taking another deep breath. "I'm sorry Kaitlyn. What I need to do is move on. No more Ben, and I'm sorry, but no more you." 

She took a step towards me, I moved back, towards the doorway, "But he loves you. I... I love you too. You're my best friend."

Random #95 - To Good Health

I would just like to say how thankful I am that I live in Canada. I know this country isn't perfect. But for the most part, I feel safe. Today, I'm thinking about healthcare. I have good healthcare. It's not perfect, but I don't have to worry about my previous pregnancies being a pre-existing condition. Today, I'm worried about the world and particularly our neighbours to the south. There are so many people without healthcare. For all my friends and family who live there, I hope they stay safe and stay healthy.

This is one of the reasons why I have been having a difficult time posting anything positive lately. I know I talked about this already, and I know that I said to myself that I should try to find the bright side, the glimmer. So, besides being thankful I live in Canada, I'm thankful for the health of my family. I hope that whatever events, things, actions, are making you upset or unhappy, that you do something about it.
