Dropping a Bomb

Posted: February 10, 2011 in Misc

Well, as I stated before, things would be changing soon. Today, it has happened. I explained to my husband that he could either start taking responsibility for his actions and stop verbally abusing me and the children or he could move out. I did not attack him when saying this. I was very calm in my approach and explained that while no one was perfect, some things were just not acceptable. He decided that rather than addressing his issues, he would prefer to just leave. Which is fine. I care about him, but I can not tolerate him treating the people around him the way he does and I can not let my children suffer because of his behaviors.

He will be moving back to Utah. I will be moving on with my life here. I’m sure more drama will unfold in the meantime, but as of now, he is arranging travel back West and I am making arrangements to move on with my life here. I truly hope that he gets the help he needs, but I cannot fix someone who does not want help. Maybe some day he will be ready to face his demons and will be able to live a full and productive life. Until then, I have to do what I have to do for the sake of myself and my kids.

Thank you to all of you who were praying for us. I believe that everything happens for a reason and that while I am not exactly sure what I am supposed to have learned from all of this, I will one day see how this played into the greater plan. I will keep all of you updated.
