Relative Anonymity Really Brings Out The Brazenness In PeopleI've been reading your stories. I see a varied bunch of experiences with common threads. But what I don't understand is how eager people seem to be to condemn you once you've decided you need to walk away from your alcoholic. Sure, sure, there is plenty of commiseration and understanding but it's tempered with what seems to be, at best, misguided well-meaning individuals or, at worst, deluded eff-ups that believe they can fix a broken person by just sticking it out a little longer. Makes me angry when I see someone so broken down from the misdeeds of others being invalidated by some so-and-so on EP. Absolutely ridiculous. I'm all for giving my two cents but show some damn respect for the trials they've been through before you tell them they just didn't pray hard enough or weren't the loving, supportive husband/wife they should have been. The nerve.
Regardless, I feel your pain. I live it every day. Stay hopeful.
