This Time She Raised the Bar



Being married to Aniket she had no insecurities regarding anything and could afford the luxuries that others might just drool over and why not? The guy was earning a handsome six figure amount per month. She had everything in her life and was ideally happy as per her parents who had forced her into this marriage. 

Although things were not as simple as it seemed on the real front. Aniket was a decent person but he was never a good husband, not in 14 months of their marriage. He never had time for her. Most of the days he was out on tours and this had created a hollowness in their relation. She had complained about the growing distance between them but he had always covered up saying he is doing everything for the two of us and want to make sure that when their child is born, they can suffice with the expenses.

“The Heck” she had thought after listening to those words. How could she ever be ready for a child? What all had she received from him as her husband in all these years except spending lonely nights as he had been always busy with his work. She had been doing nothing except cooking meals for them which he seldom ate. She was great in making house and she had kept herself busy with all that stuff in the beginning.

She had lost her job after relocating to this city in which she still felt alienated. But had not she been living a better life if she would never had married? She was just twenty four and she could have been independent and cherishing more happiness.

It has been seven days that he had not talked properly with Aniket as he was out of the country regarding some business deal. Every time she tried to contact, he would disconnect followed with a text that he was busy and will talk with her later.

All these months she had just tried to blend with the new life style she was experiencing. Also she never had courage to oppose anything. She had no complaint against Aniket as a person. He was always nice to her otherwise and he was a hard working person. But he was never good as a husband. May be they never meant to be together.

She has been trying to divert her mind elsewhere but she could not. This time he had crossed the limits. Who does not talk with his wife for seven days straight in a row? She was furious. This time, she raised the bar of her will to leave everything and return back to her home, to her family.

She started packing her clothes in a bag. She was weeping profusely now. She packed her bag and picked up her phone to dial. The call connected and she started crying over the phone. Her mother was startled at first but on being told about the situation, she asked her daughter to try and cope up with the situation.

After ending the call, she started unpacking. She had a blank look on her face. She placed all the clothes in her cupboard and moved out to the terrace. “Where will she go?” she asked herself. Even her own mother was unable to understand her. What could she possibly do now? Can she live on her own? Of course she can. Finding a job will not be that big a problem she mused. But can she leave everything behind her? Can she start a new life while losing every relation she has?

She called Aniket and this time the phone kept ringing. Smiling briefly she went back to her room. Packing her bags again, she left a note for Aniket and moved out of the house. The first breeze that hit her face smelt of freedom and she was full of life again; all set to make her own path and live her own way. Who knows may be she could even find a better person in future.

Insight:
This week's challenge was a bit out of the box. The post this time needed to contain, ‘This time, she raised the bar…’ The above post is what struck my mind fore mostly and as usual I wrote on that very idea.

It was selected among the best posts this weekend in BlogAdda. :)

That's why one should first stand on their own feet before engaging in a relation. I hope every girl follow that. :)
