Selfishness - which convinces us to put our own "happiness" (more like "feel good" moments) before that of our families or spouse
Arrogance - convinces us that we are worth the pain we put others through
You don't have a right to be happy. You have a right to love your spouse.
You don't deserve the first apology, you deserve to give it.
You are not worth the pain you cause others.
You are not incapable of denying yourself.
You don't think its fair to stay together for the kids sake? Don't. Stay in love for the kids sake.
This song was recorded by the Dixie Chicks and it so applies to the DECADE that it took for me to balance my life after my parents divorce.
I've sure enjoyed the rain but I'm looking forward to the sun
You have to feel the pain when you lose the love you gave someone
I thought by now the time would take away these lonely tears
I hope you're doin' fine all alone but where do I go from here
Cause without you I'm not okay
And without you I've lost my way
My heart's stuck in 2nd place
Well I never thought I'd be here without you by my side
It seems unreal to me, that the life you promised was a lie
You made it look so easy, turning love into memories
I guess you got what you wanted, but what about me
