Oh yeah! Ditto every word.

I did have one friend who took me seriously. I said, “Your husband would never say that to you.” She responded, “No. But if he ever did, I wouldn’t be married to him very long.” I wish I had understood what she was suggesting at the time she said it. Taking her “hidden” advice to leave would have saved me a few years of grief.

Good work! You’ve found my personal journal. I tell the truth here, and I find the process incredibly healing. You might too. So go ahead. Take a peek.
