It’s not easy to say you don’t feel the same way, that “things” have changed when you have lived together for over ten years. It’s sad to think the only times you’ll have together have already taken place.

Yes it’s sad but I don’t want to go on like this any longer.

Things have changed. There used to be stimulating conversations; now it’s all about how much weight so and so has lost. Both sides of an issue used to be discussed; compromise was always on the table. Now it’s my way or the highway.

I know it’s not its fault; it’s the stuff they feed it but my needs are not being met.

First there was denial; no you didn’t; you’re just kidding.

Then anger; how could you?

Finally acceptance; can we at least rent a movie once in a while?

It wasn’t easy telling my TV I had canceled cable but I had to do it.
