My husband and I have been on a journey. It's been a long road. I have felt very alone many times. Today, I felt a cosmic shift however and I wanted to share.
He has been going to a men only AA group for a couple of months. He fought it for years. Denied and denied. He's not an alcoholic... yeah yeah. Maybe not, but he is an addict.
Tonight he came home and was glowing. I mean BEAMING. And he announced that he had disclosed his abuse in his group. I was immediately shocked - but then this shock turned to a sublime sort of relief. And it was in that moment that I realized the burden of carrying his secret because I suddenly felt lighter. And he felt lighter. And happier. And it showed.
