So let's see........
It's been a long while since I've posted a journal entry. Hell, it's been a long while since I've been on a computer outside of work.
I've had quite the change in my life over the past almost 8 months. For those of you who had been following my entries, y'all know about some of my life and how I've been unhappy for a while. Well, I finally did what I needed to do and moved out from my house and away from my wife. Well, by "away" I mean a different house in the same city. We still talk, and I still help her out when she needs it and I can, but we are done. No more. Et finito.
That was the first step to me improving my life. And I must say, I've never been happier. Don't get me wrong, she's not a mean person. But as I've told her, I don't love her anymore (if I even ever truly "loved" her to begin with). But I did feel like I was taken advantage of, mistreated, and generally just "walked" all over. I am much better where I am now.
Now onto the next part of my life that has me smiling and happy once more. I met someone. She works at the same place as I do, but in a different department. We got to talking and we just hit it off. She's an amazing and wonderful woman. She has 2 terrific kids, a 6 y/o son and a 13 y/o daughter who both just ADORE me. We all get along great. I can honestly admit, I've fallen for her. Comepletely...utterly...head-over-heels in love with her! And to make things even better...she feels the same for me!
Now the bad news.........
She's currently got a live-in boyfriend she's been with the past 8 years. It's quite interesting actually...the way he treats her is how I was treated by my wife. She's always feeling mistreated and taken advantage of. Just a few nights ago she lets me know that he's emotionally hurt her feelings to the point all she did on her day off was just cry. She's in the process of tellig him she wants him gone, but she has hesitations because she doesn't want to lose her kids to him. I understand the hesitation and worries of it all...the fear of the unknown...the "What will happen.....?" But as I told her, I am here for her. If there is anything she needs, I will do my damndest to get it for her or her kids.
So yeah...That's been me these past several months in a "nutshell". I'll try to get on here more often and keep y'all updated, but I won't promise it, as given my track record is any indication of how often I'm on here...lol
