That’s the “d” word I was thinking about.
What were YOU thinking of?
Douchebandits. Douchebag McGreggor. Douchemover.
All good words to describe certain behavior.
I would LOVE to justify it by saying that *I* have never acted that way.
But I have.
So has Pete.
Out of anger. Confusion. Fear. Frustration. Hurt.
Just because I’m deciding to end a marriage for reasons that go SO MUCH deeper than you could even dream of knowing, I’m not doing it easily.
It doesn’t come painlessly.
I hurt for my kids. I hurt for myself.
And, yes, I hurt for Pete.
I just can no longer take responsibility for trying to FIX his hurt.
