It’s been almost two months since my wife left me and these tears still fall sometimes. It seems that every time I stand up for myself my emotions get the best of me. I know relatively speaking, it hasn’t been that long, so I won’t beat myself up over it. I think one thing she didn’t count on was STAT giving me the skills to stand up for myself and my rights. Maybe she did expect it, I don’t know. I’m not going to lie down and die here, I’m going to fight for what I believe and I know I deserve to be happy and my kids deserve a happy dad. It’s hard to come to terms with the fact that my partner of over ten years is no longer my partner in getting through this thing called life. I am finding it difficult to be completely honest about how I’m feeling about everything. I’m trying to stay positive, but the fact is that this is hard.
