    To actually read the truth hurts. But still opens your eyes to the facts. I am so guilty of holding on to the point of making myself so sick I can hardly function. Thank you for another wonderful article.

      It’s nothing groundbreaking, but when we’re in the thick of it, it’s hard to see. Especially because we get so good at rationalizing why we’re doing it.

    Great post. Its been three years. Things are definitely better. But this morning, as I came downstairs to get my coffee, the cold and dark was there. My memory triggered to my young children and my ex. The old house that was cold in the morning but somehow ok because they were all still asleep upstairs. The different life.
    I have been on my own now for awhile and its much better. But this memory made me stop and cry. Haven’t done that in ages. I miss my kids. I miss my family.

      What a poignant moment. It’s wild how those memories live just beneath the surface and can hit hard without warning.
