Chris: wanna go out?
Me: dangerous question
huge fight tonight
2nd fight ever
Chris: they happen
there will be many more
Me: you know how to cheer a girl up
Chris: just trying to point out how you're putting more on it than you need to
but I totally understand
Of course he was right. Perspective is impossible in the moment but it's persistent - you'll have to acknowledge it at some point.
I ended up meeting Chris out. Today the three of us biked down to see Dark Knight on an IMAX screen.
There will be many more fights, but always just the one person to make it up with and sleep next to that night.
