A friend called the other day. He was distraught and seeking direction on whether to end his long-term relationship. He knows I am recently divorced and it was my decision to end it after 10 years of marriage and 3 children. I am no expert in relationships but experience is a brutal teacher.
He already knew the answer. I think he wanted permission to trust his emotions, to validate his decision to walk away.
I’ve learned to trust my emotions. It’s the only thing that’s real. It’s truth. I can strip away all the nonsense and stare into myself with a clear conscious - with honesty. I am free.
I truly hope for him and her. We all deserve love.
