We are a hard case to love, and to put up with, I think I know this as well as anyone.
If he is anything like me, I can assure you that he is not without guilt. MUCH guilt. The thing is, the experiences we have faced, leave us feeling so small and insignificant that we hold little belief that we can be of any use to anyone, much less, have the power to make someone feel better when they are in such pain.
It is the emotional robbery that hurts me more than anything. The feeling of being hollow, or empty, is one that makes me feel useless and powerless to be of any use to anyone. To see someone show so much emotion, and to know that we seem to have so little is overpowering.
If you've read any of my previous posts, you will know that you, and he, are not alone in this suffering.
I wish I had something to say that could really help, but I'm still trying to figure it all out for myself too.
Best wishes and warmest regards to you both,
I truly wish for you to find happiness, I'm sure you both deserve it.
I'm here for a reason. Failure is not an option.
