Day 1 — Wake up call
Sometimes in life things happen that snap you out of a long period of darkness. I can say that now but I couldn’t have said it 7 days ago. I separated from my wife in December of 2016, and I blamed her for it happening. I spent months angry and completely cut her off. Meanwhile I missed her dearly but was too weak to disagree with the people around me who were encouraging me to move on. Day 1 is when I found out my wife was dating someone, and I felt what can only be described as my soul leaving my body. I no longer cared what anyone said I should do, I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t think about anything else than immediately figuring out how to fix my marriage. This blog is about my effort to become a better person who loves themselves, makes healthy choices, and ultimately becomes someone worth loving and spending a life with.
