Faking It

Bee and I have been arguing a fair bit since I got back.

I guess that's one of the reasons why I can't make up my mind to leave Melbourne and to come back to Malaysia for good. Because if I'm here, then all our problems become real.

Sounds like I'm running away, I know.

Sometimes I feel like we're a fake. We look perfect on the outside, but only we know what's really going on in our relationship.

That's how all couples are, some say.

Maybe it is.

Maybe all couples are just faking it. Faking to people around us, faking to create the image of a perfect couple, and most importantly, faking to ourselves that we're happy.

How many of us are convinced ourselves? How many of us are truly happy?

Or rather, can we ever be truly happy in a relationship?

Relationship has got it's up and down. I am not good in one, and thats for sure.

What I try to do is talk to my partner and we both can try solving things up. I guess talk is the best thing, it helps to release what you like/dislike about something, and then both can work things out from there.

Then again, not everyone can just talk their problems out, so you got to find the right frequency lor..

Melvin,Foong: I totally agree that open and effective communication is the key to any success relationship, but some problems take more than talking to solve. I guess in some cases, action speaks louder than words.

But yeah, it is crucial to communicate.
