It’s been a long time coming but I’m cautiously optimistic that I’m finally getting my footing since the sudden collapse of my marriage. This doesn’t mean that I’m over everything but it does mean that I may have actually reached a milestone.
My wife and I have been separated since October 14, 2014.
It’s taken me a long time to process everything and find myself in a place that I’m beginning to feel like everything is going to be okay.
Over the last couple of weeks, our relationship seems to have become much more positive, in the sense that there’s open communication, which was sorely lacking and yet absolutely vital to any type of parenting team. I can’t explain how much easier this makes life.
I won’t say that everything is perfect because my family is still in two different pieces but I’ve come to accept that this is the way things are going to be and there’s nothing I can do about it but hold my head up high and keep moving forward.
Truthfully, I still need to do a lot of healing, as do the kids but I think that process is underway.
Anyway, like I said, nothings perfect and I wouldn’t expect it to ever be but it does feel a little bit better, at least at this point in time. Life is dynamic and things are constantly in a state of flux but if I focus on the positive, learn from my failures and keep my chin up, the boys and I may just come out of this dark tunnel in one piece. ☺
