The last 10 months have been the best months of my life. It’s astonishing that I can say this while I am living through a divorce. The stress of it has been immeasurable. The fear has been far worse than what I could have imagined. As if that isn’t bad enough, I still live with “him” so each day I live with anxiety and much of the time, I live with anger. Despite all of this, I am happy. You see, I am in love for the first time in my life.
When I describe my relationship with My Love, I always say that I am freer with him than without him. Together we have found a true, beautiful love. This love is uncomplicated. This love is liberating. We spend most hours of each day together and yet we never feel a need to have a break from each other. In fact, when we do need to be apart, we function at our worst. Texts and messages are needed to keep us “close”. We have a desperate need to be together because we truly enjoy each other. Knowing the other is nearby brings peace to each of us.
We have faced so much while together that I feel we’ve already lived a lifetime. We’ve shared amazing nights of fun and love along with uncertain times full of fear and worry. We both filed for divorce this year (not because of each other), causing our lives to be unbalanced much of the time. Despite this, we found serenity with each other.
Happy (10 months) Anniversary, my love.
