Scream Above the Sounds
The Ice Is Getting Thinner
Again, this entry is named after a Death Cab for Cutie song. I'll leave the link at the bottom of the entry.
I name my entry this because it's the only way I can describe my parents' relationship. I'm amazed they have come as far as they have together but this should have probably been put to an end about 10 years ago. Maybe longer. I think I was about 15 when I found out they were having problems and simply didn't love each other anymore I guess. Things are getting worse. I don't listen or see much of them but when I do listen, it's constant arguments. Over literally nothing. Nothing of any importance. They just fight over everything. They are both 50 plus, it's just pathetic to watch and listen to.
I've mentioned my parents in a few entries before. I don't have a great relationship with them but I do love them, so much. I just wish things were a bit better for them. Maybe we would be more of a complete family if that was the case. They love me and my sister and give us everything we want but they don't make time or appreciate one another. I've mentioned before that if you stand on the stairs in my parents house, you can hear two TV's. One is downstairs in the living room where my dad will sit and the other is in my mum's bedroom, where she more or less stays when she finishes work. Stand on the stairs and you will hear the TV's in sync, the exact same channel. It's heartbreaking to listen to. I'm not sure if its because they simply can't stand each other or what. I don't get it. I wish they would try and find some sort of happiness, alone if that's the case. They've been doing it for this long, I don't see anything changing.
I couldn't imagine something like that. Especially if I had children. It's pretty obvious my parents stayed together for me and my sister, growing up but, we're both in our twenties now. It just doesn't need to be like this anymore. My parents are going away for a week on Monday so whether that will help strengthen their bond and maybe save their marriage remains to be seen. I just want them to be happy.
