LikeLike Reply My 28 year marriage has ended this year very unexpectedly and in the worst way. I have struggled this entire year with severe anxiety and panic attacks as I grieve the loss. I perceived myself as being weak because of it. As a result, I actually made myself frail physically and mentally in many ways. I have vowed to never let this happen again.

I believe that each of us faces a crucible in this life, a unique ordeal that forces us to stare into the abyss of our minds and hearts. There are two paths that we take from there. The first is to be overcome by the anguish and pain, and be defined by it, and the second is to transcend our former selves, and be defined by the way we overcome ourselves.i wish you nothing the best of life and love, and I pray you heal as best you can 😊 LikeLiked by 1 person Thank you. I am slowly getting there. I just wish I would hear these words from the two people who hurt me but I know I never will. LikeLiked by 1 person I wish you could, too.

After the conversation, I thought to myself again I still did not hear any remorse for how much he has hurt me and broke my heart. He admits to the mistake of “crossing the boundaries” with this other woman but never have I heard him say he is sorry for what happened to me. Instead, I again hear about how all this has impacted him and what he is going through. LikeLiked by 1 person I am glad to hear he is at least willing to hear your side of things. We often wish that those close to us understand our pain, but seldom really do. LikeLiked by 1 person I love this idea! It could be turned into a lovely story too, I think.
