I thought long and hard before posting this because I’m still trying to find that balance between public and private life. That being said, when people decide to make very public announcements, in a manner that my readers may actually discover before I do, I feel as though confessing how this impacts me personally, is relevant. It’s relevant to better understanding the journey my boys are on.
Please remember that while you are welcome to share your thoughts, feelings and opinions, I ask that you please be respectful. Taking the higher road is something I that pride myself on and it’s the example I want to set for my kids.
There’s a special kind of pain that occurs when your wife publicly announces on Facebook that she’s in a new relationship before you’re even divorced…..
Am I angry? No….
Am I hurt? Yes doesn’t quite cover it….
Does that mean I still want to fix my marriage? No..
Friendship is based on trust. Trust is a very fragile and living thing, that once broken can’t always be healed or fixed.
Marriage is based on both friendship and trust. These are not mutually exclusive, meaning you cannot have one without the other.
What I’ve lost has proven to be unworthy of saving. I still grieve because what I’ve actually lost and what I thought I had, turned out to be two very different things.
My one wish is that perhaps the boys and I will be blessed with the ability to move on as well……
Right now we’re still busy picking up the pieces of our lives and trying to figure out where they go…..
