I confessposted September 24th, 2021 at 8:22 AM 26 years ago we were married because we had a 1 year old child together and we wanted to do the right thing. There is nothing like regret to remind you that you are alive.

My dad left when I was six after fighting with mom since I was three. My earliest memory is them screaming at one another. I don't know if it was all roses for you to but now I just in my late thirties how much of an impact at all had on me. But waitSep 25, 2021 at 4:53amYou’ve made it together for all this time, so obviously there had to be more between you than just a child. I don’t care what the popular philosophy is about how relationships should just be easy and if you have to work at them they’re no good. ALL relationships take work on the part of both people to be successful. Are you willing to throw out everything you’ve accomplished together for all those years? Think long and hard before you throw in the towel. op to If you...Sep 25, 2021 at 7:44amthanks My parents divorced when I was three.Sep 25, 2021 at 6:53pmI'm twenty-six now and I turned out fine. I was definitely a trouble child but it didn't take long for me to accept why things happened the way they did and they turned out for the best. I also think the trouble child part had less to do with the divorce and other circumstances in my life, like having epilepsy and being multiracial. My parents are happy with my other parents now... And I get the fortune of having a bigger family! Rough circumstances can have happy endings, don't doubt yourself. You haven't screwed up in any way, you have just ended up on an unconventional path that may take you somewhere great. op to somewhere greatSep 25, 2021 at 9:49pmthank you @ but waitSep 26, 2021 at 2:20amSome people marry the wrong people for the wrong reasons. Wrong relationships aren't meant to work out. The pit.Sep 26, 2021 at 12:07pmThat's to say the pit of your stomach food lives there not you and not for very long. Free yourselfSep 27, 2021 at 8:42pmWhy regret the past when you still have a future? Your childSep 27, 2021 at 11:12pmHas been an adult for 9 years. If you were really miserable, what’s holding you back from moving on? I think you’re just stuck in self pity. You could switch your perspective to gratitude, or at least have the courage to change what you don’t like. Orange clockfaceSep 28, 2021 at 12:06amThe future of a mandala is the past!
