How A Washer & Dryer Ruined A Relationship


It was obvious from the start  the relationship really wasn’t going anywhere. We really haven’t spent a lot of time getting to know each other and as a result the relationship started to fail.

Let me explain what happened… Over the course of 4 months I found my already failing relationship was no longer holding up against the constant scrutiny from my internal heart system, and found my mind stuck in what I will term “the wash cycle”.   I put in a few dirty thoughts and a unkind word hoping like most that this machine would simply wash away my bad deed.  Like moments when you have put the best detergent and color safe bleach in to help rescue your damaged clothes, only to find nothing came out in the wash. You have to bite the bullet and hope for the best in the dryer. 

Dryer Confessions:  As you sit and tumble away the wetness of past mistakes you can only look back and wonder “how did I get here” and make a reasonable plan  of attack to NEVER make that mistake again.  60 min of tumbling away and you notice the stain is still there…you can’t wash away hurt or indiscriminate behavior…you can’t soften harsh words or tumble in and out of a conscious relation with another human.  You must take the clothes out…look at what you have done and decide…do I keep the garment or let it fade into the lost pile of clothes..

Where is that sock that always seems to get lost? 

MORAL OF THE STORY:  Let the hurt go!  It will be powerful and difficult to overlook, but when you have truly started to heal, your whole body will look brand new!

    Very insightful and well thought out, I am proud to see you moved pass the mistakes of youth and mature to a confident man… always remember “The man of virtue makes the difficulty to be overcome his first business, and success is only a subsequent consideration”.
