Pay attention to those signs!
So I was talking to a friend the other day that always goes back to her boyfriend because she doesn't like to be alone. No matter how many times she catches him cheating, she goes back...My first thought was you dumb chick, but I've been there, my wasband was a compulsive liar, cheater, narcissist...you name it. What we fail to realize, because we are "in love" is that the very signs that we ignore at the beginning of the relationship, usually become the reasons you leave the relationship. We cause our own heartbreak sometimes, we know what's good and not good for us.
So in short, don't sell yourself short! You are worth more than that!
This was probably my greatest accomplishment this year...walking away completely. Our divorce was officially finalized and I was allowed true happiness. No more insults, put downs, explaining to young kids why daddy was yelling and punching holes in the wall. No more feeling I wasn't good enough, no more sleepless nights...I can finally go into a new year at peace. Looking forward to 2017. I made it!
So yesterday was the first, so that is day the wasband really can't stand me since he has to give me a check. Since our divorce our words have become less and less friendly, which is sad, since we have known each other for over 17 years. So this was last nights convo... Wasband: Have my receipt ready, I am on my way He arrives, I am writing out his receipt Wasband: When are you changing your name? Me: I'm not, the kids are still in school, so it's easier to keep it. Don't worry, you can marry her and she can take your name, it's no big deal. Wasband: You dropped something So I look down on the ground, turn around in circles, I see nothing. Me: I don't see anything, I don't have a clue what you could be talking about. Wasband: I'm going to back up and shine the lights on it. Walk by the basketball goal, look down. Me: There is nothing there. I can't see a thing. Then the light bulb in my head went on, I see what is going on now. Wasband
One spouse cannot build a marriage alone when the other spouse is committed to destroying it. Marriage works when both husband & wife work together as a team to build their marriage. Teammates do not compete against each other; they complement each other. Teammates do not pull each other down; they encourage & support each other. Teammates do not fight in the opposites direction; they face the same direction & fight the same opponent together. Marriage teamwork is not about me; it's about us, we & ours. There is no greater example of teamwork than husband & wife. Hand in hand together, let every couple work together for the success of their marriage. Marriage is not a solo performance, it's a duet.
