L’esprit de l’escalier

I’m very sorry to make you deal with any of this.

THEN WHY ARE YOU DOING IT?!

I think the worst part is trying to even contemplate trusting someone with my heart again.

Almost as soon as I met him, I could see me and my now (and soon to be ex) husband growing old together.

After some bumpy starts and stops, I also came to see our wife that way.  Hell, we proposed by serenading her with “Grow Old With You.”

How does a heart, a person recover from that life plan being forcibly taken away?

Yes, I know philosophers and therapists and celebrities and a whole mess of other people have made an entire industry out of coping with divorce and it’s aftermath.

And I’m also aware that the only way out is through.

But in practical terms…I just don’t know how I’m going to do it.

I guess I’ll find out when I get there.

I’m very sorry to make you deal with any of this.

Not half as sorry as I am.

But I will get through this and be okay.
