I've just recently had a crummy couple of weeks which is why I haven't been around much lately. But out of a long list of things, the one thing that's bothering me the most (as of today anyway ) is that an old friend of mine is getting divorced after 28 years of marriage.
This is a couple that I always looked up to as the example of the "perfect" marriage. Happy, well-adjusted, great kids, great life. That was my ideal, what I aspired to. So now, to learn that they've been unhappy for years....it's very sad for me--my dream has, poof, vanished.
How do you reconcile the loss, that something wasn't what you always thought it was? Do you know what I mean?
