I just finished watching a movie on Netflix called “Sweet and Sour.” The premise is simple: the movie is about the ups and downs of romantic relationships within a Korean context, with a twist at the end. If you’re into movies that show the “real” side of relationships, I recommend this film.
This movie reminded me of a long-term relationship I was in. Yes, I’m using the past tense, because sadly, the relationship ended. It didn’t end because of something dramatic, like someone cheating. No, it ended because of many small incidents based on misunderstandings, changes in feelings towards each other, etc. However, these small incidents built up over the years, actually becoming something quite big like an unconquerable mountain.
In retrospect, I’m glad that I made the very difficult decision of ending the relationship, as it was unhealthy and even destructive at times. Being in a relationship should make you happy, first and foremost, and maybe just maybe the person you’re with will be the person you’ll be with forever and ever.
