Default Re: Marriage may need to end: enormous grief and sadness

I had a long conversation with my best girlfriend today. I said you know, it comes down to two questions: am I happy, AND is he enhancing my life or detracting from it? It's really simple really, when it comes down to answering those two questions. I also told her that I cannot FULLY accurately answer those questions during a period of unprecedented times (i.e. this global pandemic). But I think I know the answers.

I know what I need to do. I am going to lose the 15 pounds that I gained so that I feel great about myself, and I am going to gain a Director level role so that I have enough money for what I need to do.

And I am going to learn the lesson.

As I am writing this, he is out buying me flowers because I love having fresh flowers in the house at all times.

It's NOT enough. It's too little too late. I think I am past the tipping point and my mind is now made up.

Great idea to work on yourself while waiting for changes in your life! At least it's a positive distraction. Marriage may need to end: enormous grief and sadness
