Having been in a marriage for 26 years and then finding out my spouse was cheating on me during our separation - a separation during which I was hoping and praying she would do counseling with me for the sake of the marriage and for the sake of our two youngest kids who are still kind of a mess - I've come to realize that sacrifice during a marriage especially when you are the one doing all the sacrificing can really be painful. Three years after the end of my marriage I am finally at peace with the fact that I am fine being alone. I love, care for and respect MYSELF enough now to realize that the more I feel these things for myself, the better I will be for someone else IF there even is a someone else out there for me. I'm maybe twice the age of the author of this article, but the feelings, the emotions, pain and joy are no different no matter what the age a person is. I take joy in every day I have of my life.....the rest will fall into place if it is meant to be. The first person I married, well the only person, was basically a BTN, better than nothing.....at this point in my life I truly know that nothing IS better than that.
