Holding back tears with people

I’m at a friend’s hotpot event for one of their going away party- hosted beautifully and generously by his girlfriend. and everyone is here, laughing having great fun with friends, girlfriends, boyfriends. And it really stood out to me how these couples treated each other. They’d show affection by lightly touching a shoulder, by scooping food for their partner, by sharing drinks.  The way they talk and the way they do things for each other, the extent they would go to to do things for their partner.  My eyes welled up and I asked for the washroom.

Cultures make so much difference. It’s really true.
