FinallyBeen here on Ep for over four years and I have learned so much and been on a journey that is amazing.
I met my soul mate here. My now husband who is the best man I have ever known. It was luck with fate that we met here as we are from different countries. Something that we never imagined as we were only as friends at the beginning. Common interests and shared understanding at the ironic turns of life and always laughter shared drew us together.
Both of us met friends here on EP who championed us as individuals. We had no agenda. Then I faced my own mortality and something shifted. I already knew that he was leaving his emotionally and sexually dead marriage. I was an ocean away. Thousands of miles but why not me?
We were always so in tune. Laughing. So much joy sharing our takes on life. We challenged one another's minds. It flowed easily between us always. The easiest thing in my whole life was loving this man whom I had never met. When we finally met, it was just as easy. Leaps of faith for us both.
Loving one another was a given. The easy part. The attacks and hatred from " family" and "friends" was not so easy until now. My husband always told me that he was about a year from not caring about the naysayers. I lagged behind due to nature perhaps. Wanted to please. To be accepted.
No longer. Finally I have caught up to my husband. Those who try to diminish either of us are behind a high wall. They no longer have any power. We live each day in the love we share. It is strong and empowering. A given. Those who have attacked us are on the outside and we have no desire to allow them in. My facing a serious illness changed me. Only those who showed love and concern for both my husband and myself are granted a place in our lives now.
It is Karma. In this we both find great peace. Any person who dares intrude from a place of hate or rejection will be met with a closed door. We will and choose only to allow those who have shown both of us love and support a place of honor and love into our lives. Finally I have caught up with where my husband lives and this is good and healing and full of peace. If any person reading this questions where they lie in our lives, there is no question. Peace to all who understand and offer peace to us. D
