Saw my insightful therapist this morning. I was apprehensive about telling her that I’m dating. I said, “I have to tell you something I think you might not like.”
She said, “Are you dating?”
I guess I’m a textbook divorce case!
She just said she wants me to receive all the gifts this enormous pain has to give me and she would hate to see something get in the way of that.
I want the same thing, and couldn’t have said it better myself. If you’re going to have to incorporate all that pain, you want to see it through to the end where you can stack all the pretty, shiny lessons and gifts you earned along the way.
