Has anyone ever wondered where you go when you die? Do you ever wonder where you should go from here? I unfortunately have.

“Why don’t you just leave?” Everyone says on a constant repeat.

I mean sure, why the Hell not? Let me just gather my belongings, call a truck, have a glass of cheap wine and have a cry out roast with my besties and talk about how the next one will be better. 

That’s how normal people act when they leave a relationship, right?

I always dreamed that I would find someone who would look at me as if no other woman existed. To laugh when times were good, and to be by my side when times got us down. A man who I would call my hero, my knight in shining armor when I needed him most, a true Yin to my Yang.

Regrettably, I missed the chapter on the true evils of the world. If I hadn’t I would’ve seen my husband's picture front and center of that chapter. As soon as seeing said chapter I would’ve ran straight for the hills screaming at the top of my lungs till the burning sensation took over, and would never look back. 

I did just the opposite, I ran towards him with open arms, the heavenly drink of forbidden water to my parched mirage. I should’ve known not to make such a deal with the Devil himself, because now, I’m paying the ultimate price.

I loved the phrase, "heavenly drink of forbidden water" - a true description of that which we love but know better in which to indulge. Perhaps now, she will find the emotional release she needs and have a new adventure....

Both husband and wife want the same respect etc. " Life happens"
Communication goes missing
We are all in the same "boat" so to speak.This is why most of us have pets to keep us sane.honest
