I am starting to think these people that fly though life with no issues in their work, personal life and especially marriage are 1) lairs or 2) extremely lucky. And I don’t really believe in luck that much anyway.
So let me be direct. This year did not kick off the way I wanted to in terms of restoring and “getting back to a happy place” for my marriage. It’s tough.
Ok so not to be too over dramatic (As I’ve been told over-exaggerating is a natural gift of mine) but the last 2 years have been the most insanely happy, challenging, frustrating stressful, sleep-deprived and joyful time of my life, and I feel completely ruined.
Sometimes people change over time and especially due to a life-changing event (like having a child) it causes the basic rules of engagement marriage to change. We’re different people and we need different things now. We need to adapt and adjust…for Love. Because this is what it is all about isn’t it. Love. How far are you willing to go? What are you willing to sacrifice for the love of your life?
And the scary part is: Both need to feel the same.
So I am seeing counsel, chatting to friends, digging deep to make sense of where we are and which way is forward.
Wish me luck.
