“I don’t want to be with you anymore.”
Those words echo off into the distance as if it were some type of dream. Instantly your mind wonders back to the time they you first met him. Everything seems so vivid, so real. You remember everything about that day….that perfect day. The feeling you felt….that forever feeling…that this is “the one” feeling….that feeling that you thought would never go away. …
“Did you hear me….I said I want a divorce.”
You think about the first signs that something just wasn’t right. You notice he’s wearing his clothes a little differently. He’s breaking lunch dates; he’s coming home later than normal. You brush it off; chop it up to female insecurities. That is until you get that phone call that confirms the sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach all along…
“You’ve changed. And I think it’s time for us to move on.”
He has shown you his full blown true colors. After catching him yet again, you take him back, enabling his behavior unknowingly. He knows you won’t leave….so do you. You have become dependent on him. So much so that you have gotten use to the dysfunction.
“I love someone else.”
He’s not even trying to hide it anymore, he has done everything but openly admit he is cheating on you. He has done everything possible thing a man can do to a woman. He has violated you. Put his hands on you, left you home alone for days at a time. No phone calls, no nothing. He comes home as if nothing has happened. You let him because you are just tired of fighting about the same things. You have grown to accept the situation for what it is.
He’s gone….and you realize that you allowed him to treat you as second best to everything else that comes in his life. He was your husband when he felt like playing the role. Today was the day that he decided he was done playing with you. He sucked the very life out of you leaving nothing but the shattered pieces of a broken heart just laying there….useless….
*Then there was silence*
