Conversations: Love in Hatred

"Hi sweetheart." "What are you doing here???? you scared the daylights out of me!!!!" "Sorry...I just came to say I love you." "But I hate you." "I love you." "I hate you, I hate you, I hate you." "Why honey?" "I hate you because now I have to pay the bills and take care of finances. I hate you for forcing me to drive on highways and getting me to wash the car.

Besides the mundane hassles of shifting and re-shifting I truly felt more like a robot on the move. To add to this were painful blasts from the Past. I had to break free hence  took to modern day fasting- no Whatsapp, no facebook, no blogging, no internet. I thought it will not work, but it really did wonders.

Life is all about living and that too living it well, after all, there is no guarantee that we will live again.
