I didn't understand either.
Why I always tried to do the "right thing" and was usually the one who always got screwed over.
Why I worked my ass off to make my marraige work, only to watch it crumble away around me.
Why everyone seemed to have it so easy, except for me.
Why i was cursed with this pain and disability called clusters.
Then i turned forty, left a loveless marraige and decided to just start saying 'what the f**k"
I left my home and everything in it. Took a suitcase and a pillow and rented a ten X ten room. I cried for three weeks and worked about 24 hours a day, just to forget how lonely and scared I was. And...when I least expected it...at my lowest moment...I met a man. He offered me laughter and happiness and blended his family with me.
This isn't a rah-rah message. Just a note from someone who stood where you are and remembers how it felt. Keep your eyes open...sometimes exactly what you need, when you need it, is laid at your feet.
