Loyal spouse: Me; Disloyal spouse: The Princess
I have good relationships with most of my clients, but have a couple who I now consider friends. I had to go fix some server issues for one of these clients today. A couple years ago, she had asked about me, because I was having trouble returning her calls after my suicide attempt, so I told her all about my depression and attempt. She also knows that I have left The Princess.
She was asking today about how things were going, so I ended up telling her the whole story about my impending divorce, and The Princess' behaviour that lead up to it. She said a couple items of interest.
- When she found out that I have the boys every weekend, she said, "What parent doesn't want to spend some fun weekend time with their kids? I know it works out well for you, but that just shows how self-absorbed she is! Most people fight for weekends with their kids."
- "You look happier than I've seen you in a long time. It's obvious that you're back, and it's good to see!"
I keep discovering - and being surprised by - the good people I have in my life, but didn't notice before. I love my people!
