Don’t settle for less.

“Fall in love with someone who wants you, who waits for you, who understands you. Someone who helps you, and guides you, someone who is your support, your hope. Fall in love with someone who talks with you after a fight. Fall in love with someone who misses you and wants to be with you. Do not fall in love only with a body or with a face; or with the idea of being in love”

  1. This is one of the best sites I’ve stumbled upon yet! I know these things come from God. He keeps tossing stuff into my emails and they are either hitting at a place that I am in, or, like yours, words I wish I’d heard (and listened to) many years ago. I’ve been married almost 50 years and I am so very miserable. I know that much of it is my fault, partly because of my mental illness, but also because of how I’ve been, how I’ve acted unwisely. He’s stayed, and I don’t know why, I really don’t, but the anger is really coming out now. I have borderline Personality disorder, and that can manifest itself in many different ways. My counselor says it is one of the hardest mental illnesses to treat; there are so many different kinds.For me, spending has always been a problem. I have been in debt forever and I am not kidding.Now we are retired, and have nothing, and he is so sad and mad, and I feel that seeing my face everyday just brings it at him constantly. He doesn’t deserve all of this that I have done, and he doesn’t even know how badly in debt I am. He told me a few years ago that if he had the money, he’d divorce me and I think about leaving, but where would I go, and how would I live…and in the end, would it do any good. He’s told me I’ve ruined his life over and over, and lately he is so very very mean, and it hurts so bad; doesn’t he realize how much it hurts? Is this all that’s left…just hurting each other?

  2. I love reading every single post, but I have yet to read one regarding my situation. I have been married for 21 years to a man who can be the best partner, friend and lover forever, but then he has another side that I absolutely hate. Thru the years I try to express my unhappiness about his arrogance toward other people, his way of thinking is self righteous, his belief that women should not have men friends, but he can flirt with the teller in the banks, stores or where ever we go. I stayed in this relationship because I made my bed and now I lie in it. I know now that I settled. However, we have had good times and bad times but now he was diagnosed with Alszheimers last year and I cannot leave him. He is worse than before, my stress level is off the charts, but I persevere daily. He lost his job, which in turn, I have become the bread winner, along with my many other daily errands. I pray every day that God keeps him safe while I am at work, he is capable of doing simple jobs around the house but he can only do one thing all day. He forgets what he is doing, I could go on and on with this, maybe I am feeling sorry for myself because this is not the happy ending I was hoping for, please send me something that will comfort me in my new transition. Thank You,
