Are you living the life you want? I was living a life that no longer made me happy and for way too long. Actually I was down right miserable and what’s worse my so called partner didn’t even think anything was wrong. How does that happen? How do we convince ourselves that being unhappy is okay? Losing my mother taught me a lot about myself, but more than anything it taught me life is too short to be unhappy.
Feeling stuck in my situation is the best way to describe how I felt. Very few people knew what my marriage was actually like, and a LOT of people were shocked when I left. I was scared what it would look like, what people would think and what they would say. I was scared I would have to change my lifestyle, which I have and it is the best thing I’ve ever done.
I no longer drive a BMW, I’m not taking extravagant vacations, but one thing I am is fulfilled. When you look back on your life I can almost guarantee that you will not say that car really fulfilled me, and made my life whole. For the first time in my life I’m living the life I want. I don’t know if I have ever been this happy, and it is all because I decided I wanted something more. More than what my life had become.
We all go into marriage thinking it will last forever, and sometimes it does but some marriages have an expiration date. I don’t regret marrying my ex, we had a lot of good years together, but the unpleasant days started to outweigh the pleasant ones.
I am not saying leave your husband, what I am saying is make the decision to be happy. If that means quitting a job, losing weight, or ending a friendship do it! We only get one chance at this thing called life, and now I feel fortunate to be living my life every single day.
