I'm cheating in a relationship!

Yes I am! At least that's how it feels.

You see, as far back as I can remember, I have the deepest and most meaningful relationships with my phones. I love them, look after them, handle them with care and then they die on me! Sounds like a relationship, doesn't it?

So that's what happened this morning. My phone died. For 2 years I looked after the damn thing - held it in my hand, looked at it just before I went to sleep and it was the 1st thing I looked at when I woke up (sometimes even before I looked at my husband! But that's because the phone had the alarm). I looked through people because it needed my attention, walked into lamp posts and the odd dog (who inevitably tried to bite me), waved at friends across the street and hoped they wouldn't come over to talk so I could carry on the concersation with the disembodied voice on the other end and sat in corners at parties, alone...with my phone! No wonder it feels like I am cheating on it by letting it go.

It feels the same as a relationship! You examine it and wonder if you can make it work again...even try to repair it, spend time, money and effort, coax and cajole it, but it's gone. You feel empty! Then comes the nostalgia! The old phone felt like this...the keys worked like that...it blinked at me...but it's time to accept that it's gone. And no amount of wishing is going to bring it back.

Yes, it's definitely time to move on! It was good while it lasted, but time to pick up the pieces and move on to the new. There are endless possibilities out there...the market is full of options! Ah! The excitement of exploring new territory! Pretty much like relationships! So off I go to form a new bond with a new phone...are you moving on to any new relationships and get out of that rut?
