I Did It Part 3

Well, since the bombshell and drama, things have been quite calm. He has actually been pleasant and he is actually treating me the best he has for years*. Read second last sentence. 

I think he is currently going through self blame. Just this morning he admitted that many of his problems weren't our fault but his own fault. He realizes that much of what occurred were issues with him self and his *stuff. Meaning,. it was his beliefs, self doubts, anger, etc. I will not say that he has been totally to blame because that wouldn't have been true. I made mistakes but I can honestly say I did all I could at the time.

Its been very stressful and I know that the reason I am sick this morning is because my immune system has taken a beating. In fact, while I am taking a few minutes to type this, he is at the drugstore for me.

We've been collecting boxes and started sorting though out things.

It's sad, but isn't that the way it always goes?? When it's to late to fix it then they start asking what it is they can do.

Only now at the very end does he realise!

Well, you're in the process of reclaiming your identity. In this process, you may find that you can remain friends. That is not to say you should second guess your resolve, but rather to suggest that you both may be electing to sidestep the opportunities for drama, fire and brimstone that so often takes over. You might actually maintain a healthy relationship - as friends. It would be a good thing and would not distract you from the business of getting on with your life.
