People change. Drift apart. I don’t know what happened, but I can’t deny that things are different. I feel so empty. And alone.
Everything seemed fine, then one day I woke up and realized I was just going through the motions.
No love. No joy.
I would like to think we can work things out. I am willing to try, but things are so one-sided. We “took a break” and are further apart than ever before.
But it is hard to walk away. I don’t want to lose you. We have been together for six years.
Please know it is not you. It is me.
And it is also my kids. I know, I know. It is wrong to bring the children into this, but they have really come between us. I have less time now than when they were infants. I blame organized sports. And laundry.
It is extremely hard for me to admit, but there is also someone else. Instagram (aka Becky with the good hair) is just so easy. So fast. I’ve tried to quit, but I just keep going back for more. And I was recently introduced to Snapchat. She is playing hard to get, but I am thrilled by the lack of commitment. And the filters. I am stuck in the middle of a love triangle. I feel so dirty.
Can you celebrate an anniversary if you’re not sure you are even still together?
Of course you can. Especially if there are gifts. Like this Lulie Wallace notecard set and pair of Anthro earrings…
Flowers and jewelry? No, I don’t think you are stupid. I know gifts don’t solve problems but they definitely don’t hurt. For a chance to win, leave a comment below. Just tell me everything is going to be okay. I love the way you lie.
A winner will be randomly selected next week. Who am I kidding? There are no winners in a situation like this.
I am not going to act like everything is okay. Or like I can fix this is one day. It will take time and effort. And I have very little of either. But I do miss you. And I want things to be like they were before.
Don’t give up on me…
