Letting go...I may need to go back to Al-Anon:) Most of my life I have been trying to help others. I helped my ex-husband out for the past 3.5 years. He has addictions that he has not made public however if he would admit them then possibly he could move on with his life instead of remaining in dishonesty. I allowed him to live in my office while he was awaiting trial. After the second trial he was sentenced to state prison for 3 years. I was upset last night upon cleaning out his room and finding documents written about me that were not true. I lost my sense of peace & that things were right with the world. I live my life openly and honestly and have a hard time with people who do not and then involve me in their lies. My focus needs to be me, not any other person, place, thing, or situation. I can feel love for a person without getting sucked into the vortex of their stories...because I am supposed to be writing my own story; not being the supporting actress in someone else's story:) Blessings...and one day at a time just trying to figure it out.

    I'm glad to see you are a member of Al-anon. I was formerly married to an alcoholic as well so I recognized his behavior immediately. It's always easier to blame others for our shortcomings rather than confronting the person in the mirror. How sad that he chose to hurt one of the few people who probably still had some empathy for him. I hope you move on. I broke all ties with my ex and met the love of my life. I've been with this wonderful man for 31 years. I am so happy now to be void of the drama that my ex creates. Good luck!
