I feel like my life is falling apart at this moment -- my fiancé won't have sex with me, or marry me, and my sister wants to move out. The perfect world I live in seems to be crumbling down faster than the speed of light.
I won't say I am surprised that Marta wants to move out, as she and Romain have been going at it for a while, and unless they figure things out on their own, I don't think I can be of any help. I see both sides and am sick of being stuck in the middle: one is my blood and the other is my future. I won't lie that it breaks my heart and makes me want to disappear somewhere far away and not have to deal with it sometimes.
This is supposed to be a wonderful time for all of us to appreciate each other and thank God for what we have, and instead it’s high tension everywhere. Between Romain’s citizenship and his 10-year anniversary at Mynt, I feel like the pressure he is going through is taking a huge toll on our relationship. Now, I think Marta sees that, and it makes her resent him even more, but I’m hoping it will all get better. I guess Romain just wants Marta to be more helpful around the house, and I guess Marta just wants more brotherly love from him, like it used to be. Oh well, it is what it is at this point, and I’m not gonna put too much thought into it, and I’ll hope it works itself out…
This week was super important for Romain, since he was celebrating two things: his new American citizenship and 10-Year Anniversary at Mynt. What attracts me to Romain is that we have a similar story: we both emigrated to America with nothing, and worked from the bottom up without giving up for a second, even though there were many times when it would have been easier to just give up than to keep fighting, but we never ever gave up and still don't. I respect him so much more that he built everything on his own instead of being born into a rich family where he would take life for granted. Instead, he treats everyone equally, no matter the size of their wallet. I believe when you work hard for something, that’s when you appreciate it more.
