You started out fun.
New and exciting.
Nothing difficult about you, you were an interesting diversion.
And then you got to be more.
I sang your praises and ignored others because I wanted to spend more time with you.
Because you gave me such joy.
But then one day, things just got so much harder.
You weren’t so pleasant any more.
I felt like I was beating my head against a wall, doing the same things over and over but not getting anywhere with you.
It would go on like that for days but then you’d relent and we’d have fun together again.
But that fun wasn’t lasting as long any more. The difficult times came around more often and took longer to pass.
I wondered if maybe I should let you go from my life.
But I’d invested so much time in you and I didn’t want to give up those fun times, even if they were happening fewer and further between.
I couldn’t just quit you, could I?
But once again, we find ourselves stuck, not moving forward, causing bad moods and wasting precious time.
So, that’s it.
I have to quit you, Candy Crush.
I’m moving on and finding new ways to waste my time.
Please excuse my withdrawal symptoms over the next few days. And try not to judge too harshly if I send you a ticket request because I had a Candy Crush relapse and went on a binge until I got to the next level.
