I've held off posting for days, unsure of what to release. Life is not pristine--but I've pointed that out many, many times. Whose life is??
Sometimes I think we are a product of the media. We read fairy tales. We see far too many romance comedies where everything works out happily every after. Is there such a thing?
It's just plain mean to present such propaganda!!
It is what it is.
I read those posts of happy family life. I'm skeptical. I had that perfectly-presented-to-the-public-life for some 18 years. When I got to the point that it became increasingly painful to live the lie, I divorced the guy. We all have the right--and obligation--to live a truly happy life.
I'm down for the truth these days. Why mislead any unsuspecting youth? It just wouldn't be fair.
I'm into this marriage 7 years now. I'd like to think it's perfect, but I know better. I am thankful that I realize my happiness is not dependent upon it.
Now, that's progress.
