I think you’re right. Kind of funny. Last time I checked, I was still happily married to my husband of 14 years. Hold on, let me just check…. Yep, he’s still here. In the other room, with our four kids.
I see how my post could be read as something written in response to a relationship ending, though it isn’t. It’s more a culmination, as you described, of many years and lessons and experiences. I’m still learning. I hope we all keep learning. Our relationships, romantic and otherwise, are so much better when we’re not motivated by duty or obligation or fear.
Thanks for commenting, and happy Thanksgiving!
