I’ve never been particularly good at pretending to be someone I’m not. I’ve always had this streak of honesty that can be, I’ll admit it, embarrassing at times. It’s made me careful who I surround myself with and also very protective of the personal details of my life.
There are only a few people who know that I’m unhappy in my marriage. There are only a few people who know that I plan on leaving. It’s this glaring omission to me. It makes me feel like a liar, even though I feel like I’m doing what’s right for me right now.
I’m in therapy, where I talk about leaving, among other things. I wish I didn’t feel so alone in this. I feel like I’ll be hurting so many people by leaving. I feel like I’ll hurt my kids. I know I will. And my H will be devastated. I feel like my family will be disappointed in me too. I feel so alone.
My afternoon snack.(:

Words and Pictures, life through my eyes and fingers...
A sneak peak into my thoughts, heart and life; a photo says a thousand words; but words express thousands of thoughts. I blog with almost no photos to give the written words the honour they deserve.
Poetry, prose, musings, nonsense.

mediocre poetry at its best
I wrote thirteen novels in 2012. This is what I learned, what happens next, and other miscellany.
