Sobriety Day 93
“I think you need to tell your sister. You’d be a great resource for her.”
“How much would I tell?”
“However much your comfortable with.”
My Bride’s sister moved in with is last week. She has had huge personal issues. She and her husband split a few years back, it was a toxic relationship. She got a boyfriend for about a year and moved in with him. They broke up. She moved in with her parents. Not wanting to live there anymore, she wanted out. We had space, she needed it.
She and I have very similar issues. We both feel like failures at life. Different situations brought us there, but there we are together. We both have the baggage to go with it.
My Bride is an angel. She has to deal with 2 people with horrible self-images. I’m bipolar and she is too, I think. Oye! That woman is incredibly special. I’d probably collapse, like a bunch of broccoli.
Not My Bride. Nope, she trudges on and kicks ass.
She said she is uncomfortable telling her sister anything. I told her she could give Sister someone to listen to at all times. To make things better, My a Bride can talk with Sister. They both have similar issues as well. Both spouses were unfaithful. My wife can help her and Sister can help My Bride. It’s a win-win.
I told her it would be nice if she didn’t reveal the exact specifics of my infidelity. THAT would suck for me in a major way. But I also told her she has my blessing if she needs to do it.
One of my biggest desires is to help others that have been through, are going through or will be going through our situation. That eventual means my entire story is made known. Only then can others fully understand the depth of our problem and trust us.
We will help people. Of that I am confident.
