I am still sad, though life goes on and I am more adjusted to my new life. Every now and then I'm consumed with thoughts on a 14 year relationship that is no more - and how I have not moved on as easily she has seemed to. I don't know how people do this so often.
This is honestly making me even more cynical than I already was, at least about interpersonal relationships. It's just hard to keep a positive focus - but I am trying. My future is so uncertain, and not all that great, but I'm going along. Trying to be the best father I can be to my children - they are the sole source of true joy in my life now, and I'm just so thankful that they're wonderful people.
