I won’t say, “it seems like yesterday that I was gossiping with my girlfriends in the school lunch room about who was dating who.” But I will say that it feels all too real, as I am sitting in my own home, with my husband and (fur)babies, talking with my girlfriend about the problems she is having with her marriage.
She just recently revealed to me, her husband admitted he was unhappy in their marriage, months ago, and said he doesn’t feel like he loves her anymore…
What do you say when one of your best friends asks you, “What do you do when your husband looks at you like he hates you?”
My answer, You Fight.
You fight for your marriage and you do not take those vows you made lightly.
However, my answer is not why I’m writing this or what I’m trying to get out.
I am more focused on the shocker it is to me that I’m a grown up now…I know that sounds ridiculous but you get my point. The fact that my friends are struggling in their marriage, my husband and I are trying to start our family, I am trying to find a job that pays real money even though I can’t decide on a career still…I am thinking about starting my own small business. I am recommending realtors and financial advisors to multiple different friends. I’m throwing baby showers and hosting parties in my home.
It definitely makes you long for the days your biggest concern was what to wear on your first day back to school!
It’s so true what they say these days, Adulting Is Hard!
I hate that my friend is having such a hard time in her marriage. It definitely puts things into perspective for me. It makes me appreciate my hubby and all that he does for me that much more. It’s hard to fathom what it would be like for my husband to tell me that he didn’t love me anymore. I guess I should be thankful for that. But this whole, being a grown up thing is all too real some days. I guess we all have our issues and troubles in our lives. Struggling with infertility, deciding on a career, and DIY-ing the mess out of ourselves in our new home is all very eye opening, very exciting and absolutely terrifying! I realize it’s a big world we live in and in comparison these problems may seems smaller for some people and bigger for others. But all of these recent life events happening both in my life and the lives of those close to me have definitely opened my eyes to what it means to have faith, not taking time for granted, and that making the most of our time in this life should be at the top of our priorities list.
