Hamlet:
To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them. To die—to sleep,
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to: ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there’s the rub:
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause—there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life.
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
Th’oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of dispriz’d love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurns
That patient merit of th’unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscovere’d country, from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pitch and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry
And lose the name of action.

Macbeth

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Relationships are great. Loving someone, having someone special is great. People all over the world have either got someone they love. That specail someone, or they are seacrhing. Dating websites are 10-a-penny. They all promise to get you that ‘soul mate’. If ever there was any phrase that’s forever abused it is the phrase  ‘soul mate’.

Most people look for a shag-mate or a ‘friend with benefits’. Yes some seek love. But some seek that fling, that excitement they will get from knowing they are seeing someone else.

I digress.

My initial aim when I started writing this piece was to talk about relationships and the pros and cons. It is not easy to maintain a good loving relationship. Ups and downs are there everyday.  The most important thing is to ensure you keep the candle burning. People often take each other for granted and this is the main root cause of domestic strife. The ones who love you most, are the ones who also hurt you most. Keep fighting for the love.Dont give up on your partner, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend or significant other. Or OH. It is not plain sailing, but its interesting and is full of hope. The grass always looks greener outside. Its mere temptation. And its a mirage.

If the grass was that green outside your relationship, why is it there are millions of people who desperately want to have that someone they can share their lives with. Always remember.
