Last week a woman said something to me that stopped me in my tracks. Let go of your expectations, forget about perfection and BE HAPPY.It had occurred within the context of a conversation we were having about the death of my husband last year when she asked me how I was coping. It was then she said, For the next week or so he'd randomly be waiting for me outside of work or at the station, watching from a distance so he could see me but I couldn't see him. When you married your spouse, the idea was for better for worse, in sickness and in health, til death us do part and yet here you are, not dead and facing the prospect of divorce.It was 2012 and I'd just gone through a horrible breakup.
We are turning into a society where technology is taking over our lives - men are on the Xbox and messing around with their gadgets, and us ladies are watching our favourite soaps.
I totally get it - log fire, glass of wine and no make-up on is great!
It's a bonus when you don't have to take it off later - happy days!
As I type this it's a sickening thought, basically being stalked by your own boyfriend because he can't even trust you to get home on your own. The vows are for better for worse, but overcoming when your partner has cheated is a very difficult thing to do, even worse when the cheater does not want to be in the marriage.
There's something very empowering about being with other people who understand what it's like to live with fertility problems, to share experiences and to learn from one another How many times have we all decided not to confront inappropriate behaviour, to explain how we are feeling, to tell someone when they have hurt us..the time pretending to ourselves we are too nice to do so? Thinking about our habits, our behaviours, our moral beliefs, our past, our future......I don't know about you but I'm thinking.
It is incredibly easy to tell someone that you love them. This takes time and effort, which if you really love them shouldn't be difficult. As you've probably guessed, alphabet dating involves going on dates beginning with the letters of the alphabet, in the correct order.
