I am strongly of the belief that there is only one way to emotionally heal.
My best friend and I have been talking the past few days about this subject. His sister got divorced around the same time I did. She was with the same guy from high school all the way into her early 30s, which was well over a decade. None of the family ever liked the guy. At first, I assumed this was typical outsider discrimination, but as the years went by, I came to agree with them. I should have believed they had good reasons for not liking the guy from the start, because they’re not a hateful family by any means. They don’t argue with each other, or anyone, and they’re generally very patient and understanding, almost to a fault.
And that’s the reason why what’s happening to my best friend’s sister is so concerning to me. Her emotional pain is turning her into something she’s not. I’ve been down that path, and with every fiber of my being, I don’t want a kind, loving, happy spirit like her to be damaged beyond repair.
