I married the right man

Monday, December 08, 2008

Have you ever had one of those conversations that changes the way you look at things? For quite awhile I've thought that the reason behind the things I do was one thing, when it turns out it's something else entirely!

This revelation hasn't necessarily changed my life at the current moment. I still have to wrestle my own demons. But now I know what they truly are! I feel like I've been lying to myself this whole time.

I always feel the need to justify myself to those around me. (Mostly because certain people in my life demand it). I wish I could feel good about cutting them out of my life, but that's just not the kind of person I am. I don't think I could do that to someone, no matter how awful they are to me. But luckily I am married to the best man in the whole world. He opens my eyes to see things from new perspectives. He comforts me when others hurt me. He doesn't allow me to let others completely derail me.

I hope everyone finds someone that makes them feel this good.

  I understand completely. Even though I am much older than you, I met and married my current husband almost 10 years ago. He is Literally, "my better half". Congrats to you and may you have all the joy and happiness that you deserve for years to come. emoticon

    I'm getting married in 10 months... but we've been together for 4 yrs, so I'm pretty sure I've got a winner on my hands too. I'm so glad you have the support you need. It's so important...

Jibbie, my gosh, I'm so sorry to hear this.

    I have to agree with you on this one...I wouldn't even consider another man and after 47 years...that's a positive statement. Even when things get tough...I'll keep him. emoticon
