For me, I had to put some space so I could maintain normality for my own family. To be successful in raising my own children, I had to push a lot of that dysfunction aside so I could see clearly and react within a parameter of my own normal state. Everyone has to do what works best for them and their family and this is what has worked for me. Take care.
I think your gut lead you to that and that is good. If someone had asked me why I had gained so much weight so fast (by a true friend,of course) maybe I would have stopped to think and would have been diagnosed sooner.
Sometimes I think people choose for that time in their lives. Not the wrong choice, just a different one than if it was being made in the now. Lives change, needs change. I feel like there may be less guilt associated with it that way. Hugs to you. I know it\'s hard even if it\'s the best of circumstances.
It\'s been an odd emotional ride for me. On one hand I am sad that what I thought were strong marriages, or at least as strong as my own, are now no more but on the other hand see my friends pick up the pieces, start new and grow.
I completely agree that this is this general sense of true self with women in their 40\'s. I like more women now at this age than I ever have. I\'m able to not only be myself and accept it, but see others with this new lens.
Oh gosh no. I guess seeing so many relationships fall apart has just made me pause and reflect. It's a weird post for me for sure. :0
You know how the rule is to \"never read the comments?\" Well, it\'s a good one. So much ignorance out there and it doesn\'t even apply to their kids so why do they care?!
I got it at Menards. :)
