The Nature of Change

    This is so true that it hurts. My wife became so infuriated with me during some dark days and trials I was going through that she gave up on me and our marriage and sought escape in an emotional affair for 2 years.

    I feel to this day that she is not satisfied with who I am as an individual (even I know I am not where I would like to be, but am working to be a better version of me), but she keeps me at a distance emotionally, spiritually and physically waiting for me to turn from a caterpillar into a butterfly. All the while, I wonder why she stays, if she even truly chooses me (haven’t heard an “I love you” or felt desired or pursued in years and years now), which just breaks my heart daily.

    I am a caterpillar who desires love even if he remains a caterpillar and never finds his wings. I wish my wife, the butterfly, could just love me flaws and all, knowing that my love for her was always there even when I was battling through the worst days of my life and all I wanted her to do was to love and support me.
