There is still this tiny shining light in the pit of my soul that truly believes that there is someone out there who I am meant to live my life with.
I don't want a husband. I don't want a knight in shining armor. I want a best friend. A best friend that I can have long conversations and passionate sex with.
Is that possible? Does that happen?
I go meet the Ex tomorrow to sign separation papers. The thought makes me feel heavy. I don't want to see him. I don't miss him. I'm not even mad at him. I think that's why I don't want to be face to face with him. I'm not sure what sort of emotions are going to come floating up.
I have seen countless marriages fall apart this year. 2012, it seems, has been a year of destruction. And for all of us newly unwed hearts, I hope that this isn't the end of our love stories. I hope that there are better stories in our future. And I hope that we have the courage to try again.
Sometimes hope is all we got.
