I come from humble beginnings, filled with divorce after divorce, many moves, and uncertainty. I learned very early that the one person I could always count on was me. So I did. I didn’t need anyone for anything.
I’ve been married now for 19 years, and we’ve been together 24. Life hasn’t been easy, nor did I ever expect it to be. Nothing easy is worth much. Investment cultivates happiness, not ease. I’m invested; we’re invested. This is it for me. I know this to my marrow. And the biggest reason I do, is because I also know to my marrow that there’s another person in this world I can trust with anything. With everything. There is another person in this world on which I can count as much as I’ve ever counted on myself. More than. I don’t ever have to feel alone again.
My soul needs this man. Together, we can weather anything. Everything.
That is the most powerfully freeing feeling in this universe, I believe.
