If I would classify most people’s lives, it would probably be a romantic comedy. I mean.. we have all the right elements: the highs, the lows, the humour, the love story, the drama!
Fate would have it so that most of would meet the love of our life. Probably randomly. But not until the very end of course. Afterall the guy gets the girl at the very end. Then they would get married and get their happily ever after.
But life isn’t a movie. Everything has a consequence. And how about in this story, there was a chance. A chance to get what you want. What if you could gain happiness at the expense of someone elses? Would you do it? How much is your happiness worth? Aren’t we supposed to go after what makes us happy?
You could say, don’t worry, fate will take care of things. But I don’t believe in fate. You are more or less in control of your own destiny.
The opportunity was there. But in this story, he didn’t take it. He didn’t ask what he could have asked. He didn’t say what he could have said. But sometimes you must choose what to do, or what not to do, and hope it is the right thing. Even if it means you won’t get what you want. It might mean you lose something, maybe even someone who you love.
If life were a romantic comedy, there certainly isn’t a guaranteed happy ending. You aren’t even guaranteed a “real” ending. But hey, that’s what makes it interesting.
