One plus one make two, and
one minus one, zero.
Simple arithmetic, eh…
In a relationship, e.g., matrimonial,
some people choose
the first option, join together,
and double their strength
to live a life of happiness, togetherness.
Others go for the second choice,
and get reduced to nothingness
to live a life of split and misery.
This or that,
consciously or mindlessly,
the choice is theirs…entirely,
the consequence is their own…totally,
to script their own destiny, and
live their life
in happiness or misery.
Life thus becomes
a mere problem
of simple arithmetic, or
simple preferences and choices!
