Sometimes life doesn’t go according to plan and people are quick to judge. It’s not easy to be in your 30s in India and not married. People jump to conclusions, wondering “what’s wrong with him?” They don’t see how amazing he is. Or they don’t realize that even if a person is amazing, sometimes it doesn’t work out anyway, through no fault of his own. Sometimes it just doesn’t work out – and that’s okay.
Here’s the story: He was committed to her. He waited 8 years, giving her time, wanting to be the best husband he could to her. Then one day she left without any explanation, breaking his heart. But how can you explain all that in a way that people will understand and not pity? Or point out what he did wrong? Or give him blithe advice, that’s already been said a thousand times? What can be said, to comfort and empower him, rather than shame or victimize?
His good friend sees the struggle and wants him to be happy and to Feel Loved. She knows he’s going to be alright. She know that his life isn’t over yet, and there are still many miles to travel and adventures to be had.
