She asked – Do you still love me?

April 6, 2016

Sometimes, we doubt our relationship amidst all the crisis life has to witness. Spooky questions cloud our minds which leave us in qualms.

Is it loosing its spark?

Does he/she love me anymore?

What has changed?

Bad patches in life make the things blurry. As time passes, we started doubting our relationship which gets overloaded with responsibilities.

Its a story of a couple who knows each other from last 14 years, In a relationship from last 8 years and married from last 3 years.

They accepted the truth, let go of the past to start a new life. They gave up everything to be together with a wish to put an end to long-distance relationship.

But who knows whats lies ahead. Their one only wish still remain unfulfilled.

Time was passing and they were learning to live like this- No evening strolls, No dining or sipping tea together and No witnessing Sunsets together.

“Was that too much to ask”- She asked herself one summer evening, sitting in her Chair glancing at the stars.

She missed the bliss- An ear to listen to her Office chit-chats, affectionate hugs at the end of the day and Cooking for him.

This was giving birth to hidden resentment and turning her churlish towards him.

Then a baby arrived from heaven lightning their lives- She was gifted that she stopped thinking about the trouble their marriage is going through. But the worry did not disappear–it just went into hibernate mode.

Slowly, It started spilling out with fervor. Arguments, fights and bitterness started engulfing their relationship. Not only they were suffering but their well wishers too were bearing the brunt.

He is not the same as he was. A debate was going on inside, deep inside making the things more complicated. She was finding the answers but days passed creating more and more anxiety.

One day she did the same. She never thought she will ask this question. She was feeling so weak, so hollow inside.

Daringly she asked “Do you still love me”?

    Such loneliness is really hard to handle in relationships irrespective of having kids. It is painful but then it happens most of the times. Well written.

    • Thanks Meera for your kind words.

    We all know those anxious feelings that would prompt us to ask questions like these, and we know the hope we harbor, the hope that their answers will reassure us and restore intimacy when we suspect it’s fading.

    We also know how hard it can be to try to answer such questions honestly and reassuringly.
