    Lonely, On the Road, Why?
    I travel A Lot for business. I used to love it, have seen much of the world. When I was younger, really took advantage and got out to see stuff. Now, I am older and on the road even more. Away from wife and kids a lot. Bored and lonely, as you can probably hear in my voice. Technology makes it easier, can chat online or text with friends and family but in some ways, it makes it all worse. Why do I bother? Is it really for money? Career ambition? Am I scared to see what it would be like to be home all time?… [more]

I never went back and saw their reaction. I don't want to tell my wife or she may be upset for not being frugal or friends who may think I am weird.

    Marriage Concerns
    I have written before about my constant work travel and I can see now that it is taking a toll on my marriage. Me always being away has resulted in both of us adapting to life without each other. When we are together, there is now a bit of coldness, I feel. It causes a mix of emotions. Sometimes I try too hard to overcompensate when I am there, especially with children, but it makes me feel false. At the same time, I dont feel like I have natural authority at home, either, like I am a guest. I think she is lonely and I feel guilt about that. She doesnt want to consider counseling but I really think we could both use someone neutral to talk with.… [more]
