Status: It’s Complicated. No, it isn’t. You’re Married!

So this is how it feels to feel abandoned emotionally. I’m sitting up at 2:00 a.m. for the second night in a row because I can’t go back to sleep. Thoughts race through my mind as I view Adam’s social networking page and see what is happening right in front of me. He is flirting with two women on his page.

A Part of Me Died on This Day

Dressed in a white bridal gown, I remember sitting on a bench minutes before I walked down the aisle. I must have had a look in my eyes of innocence, the unknown, a bit of fear, nervousness, enough to alert my father. Standing in front of me, he looked down at me with my mother at his side, and said, “Come on. We’ll leave everyone and go to Vegas, just you, your mom and me. What do you say?”

Why This is a Great Balancing Act

A job for someone can be a chore. A job for another can be a mission in life. A job for me is a great balancing act between being a wife, a mother, and a good employee, or if you’re divorced, a single mom raising children, shuffling between doctor’s appointments, extracurricular activities, evening work events, homework, etc.
