Is it January YET??

I hate the holidays.

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, but beyond that, there are NO holidays I enjoy.  Not my birthday, mother’s day, fourth of July, Christmas, Thanksgi…. you get the point.  The thing is, the indifference has changed into hatred of Thanksgiving and Christmas.  My husband celebrated Thanksgiving with his whore a week early while I was at a wedding.  The year that I was going to be be cooking at home, for the first time in 6+ years. So… there’s the fun thought of him celebrating and loving all over his slut while I was trudging 3 kids on a 4 hour each way trip, to see my cousin get married. Then, acting like he actually enjoyed the meal I made…and ate that meal with my parents. And of course, who can forget that he wrote her a freaking BOOK for her Christmas present.  She was his MUSE after all! He loved her and all she was to and for him.  He never wrote me a book, he wrote me a poem when we first started dating.  And he wrote me a few notes, because I made him.  She was so great for his creativity.  He wrote blogs to and about her.  She was just his everything.

And here is me.  His nothing.  His chains, his trap, his death, his downfall, his burden.  And I feel like I am all those things to him.  I don’t feel like he loves me, much less likes me.  And one of his big reasons for not writing things for or to me is because I didn’t read his book.  Guess how many of my blogs he has read…..  As many of his vows that he stayed true to!

  1. Oh hun, your pain is so raw and palpable today. I hope your writing has released some of it so there is room for the light to seep into the broken parts of your heart again.

    “I don’t feel like he loves me, much less likes me.” These words struck me. My husband used to insist that he loved me, but I would always respond, “ok, maybe you do love me, but why don’t you like me?” There really is a difference between the two, isn’t there? And of course, I need to feel loved, but feeling liked meets a different need of being accepted, wanted, chosen for being me.

    Remember too, that feelings are just feelings. They aren’t wrong. They can be beyond painful and overwhelming. But they aren’t always based on truth. I hope you are able to find clarity in the coming days of what your reality is in your marriage. Because you are most definitely not nothing. xo

    1. Some days are definitely harder than others. I am just at a point where I hate repeating myself, and being vulnerable, to a person who crapped on that vulnerability, and me, so easily.

      Thank you for your kind words, always.
