The other side of a breakup
Kris Gage

So much truth — and interesting as I’m navigating a reconciliation with my husband who cheated and left me. He said he felt unheard, unloved. But in our time apart, he learned that he was depending on me for all his emotional needs. He has grown. And I started al anon, which changed my worldview in an almost jarring way — like going from blindness to sight. I didn’t often show up in the marriage the way I wish I had — but the way he left was BRUTAl. I know now it wasn’t easy for my ex to leave — but trying to find forgiveness for his cheating, and, honestly, worse, leaving me, is so hard. Thanks for shedding some light on the other side of things.
