Just Want to Put It Out There

Lets talk about everyday life and the bridges we must cross.a story of my friend.

 I have had a very interesting life in my eyes.  I use to be married to a man a few years ago and that was the worst mistake I have ever made.  I was not happy for a very long time but never left. He would put me down verbally everyday and when I would mention it and how much it hurt me he would just laugh and say get over it he was just joking. Well, it was no joke to me it really tore me up inside.  I would often cry myself to sleep. 

One day a former co-worker of mine sent me this random text.  I had worked with her for a few years but had known her for about six years.  I had been attracted to her since the day I met her.  Because of this random text I had the courage to open up to her and tell her just how I felt.  This was the best thing I ever did.  We took things slowly and she wanted me to make sure that I tried everything before I ended my marriage.  She is against divorce and if I was going to leave my husband I had to leave for the right reasons and not just her.

I decided to go to counseling by myself.  When I told my ex-husband he laughed and thought I was crazy.  I tried to talk to him about anything and everything, but it was like talking to a wall.  Finally I had had enough and packed a bag and left.  When he came home boy was he surprised.  He wanted to finally talk.  I went to his house to talk and now all of sudden he wanted to go to counseling and talk.  Funny how when the best thing that has ever happened to you is gone you’ll do anything to get it back.  In my eyes it was too late and the marriage was over.

I moved out of his house and went to stay with my mom for a while.  I continued to work on my new relationship with my new girlfriend.  Things were going great.  She treated me with respect and loved me for who I am not who she wanted me to be. 

It has been almost 2 years now and I am happier now than I ever have been.  My family and friends are very supportive and love my girlfriend.  I know I am very lucky to have the life that I have and I thank God everyday for it.  Since is the greatest gift.  We have a very strong relationship and most of our friends envy us.  We talk everyday and cherish each other the way people should.  We now have a house together and we are working on starting our own family with having a baby. 

If I could change anything I don’t think I would.  She made me realize how much I am really worth and how I should be treated.  I am who I am today because of her.  She is my bestfriend.
