Well,Today has been one of those days.One were you fight and dont know what will happen next.Its hard but,then sometimes you make yourself so numb that its not that bad. Being out of work has been awful.I have had to stay home pretty much 24-7 unless Im out job hunting or at a DR's appointments.(Because its hard to meet friends when you get older that and im broke) The mold in the rental house is worse and the landlord could give a crap.My bronchitis is almost gone and feeling better except for the excessive sleepiness.The positives are I have 2 upcoming interviews.So, I have been trying to be in the spirit even though we have not one decoration up,being that we may be moving out at the end of the month-which really sux.In the last yr I have moved 5 times.I just now have got my unemployment thank God which isnt much,but it helps pay bills. All I have been wanting to do lately is watch a christmas movie here and there and maybe find a cheap artificial tree-(which those words coming out of my mouth of "artificial tree " are like nails on a chalk board) I know beggars cant be choosy and we are moving soon somwhere who knows.I have always had the tradition of cutting down a tree and eating cookies and drinking cider.This year it looks as if I may have to be out on my own because all this fighting and I dont feel like this is helping either one of us.I didnt want to see this happen but,i cant stop it.I wanted to go to the christmas parade but i didnt feel well.Today I wanted to go to the live nativity scene and activities in Dallas.But,unfortanatly we had so much too do to try and make money that we couldnt go.It burns me up because i want to do things and i feel i cant. If i could I dont have any friends to go with. I feel stuck.Its like "cabin fever". I know Im 30 yrs old ,jobless and stressed out but I need some kind of fun.Is that selfish?

I think about divorcing my husband almost every day, but I need to stick it out longer I think. He just is so selfish and is a very different person than I married.
My turd is a scrooge too, he woud rather not have a Christmas tree than help me do it, and he will not stop hunting long enough to help me shop for a few things, not much but I think it would be nice for him to go on at least 1 shopping trip with me. He never know what the hell I get the kids until Christmas morning. He is very selfish.

Well, if you ever need any help shopping I think im pretty good at it , great with kids. I could help.Im a big kid myself.It would probably cheer me up to do something like that since I dont have any of my own, i want them but its not the right time.

Bad things happen to good people throughout the year; even at Christmas time. I'm sorry so many of you are having troubled marraiges; perhaps even divorcing. I just wonder how many of you do any self reflection at all, about what your role was in the demise of your marraige. It's so sad to me that your marraiges are on the rocks and you consider it a laughing matter! sad.gif

I assure you I DO NOT consider it a laughing matter.
I do however make jokes as a way of dealing with a terribly sad and rough stage of my life.
This, I'm sure, you can understand.

To start with, I just have to say that I am SO thankful for my wife!

Speaking for myself -- I often need reminding that nothing else in my life is going to work as designed until I have my priorities straight with the Designer. And nobody else -- husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, child, parent, friend -- nobody else can get that relationship right for me by proxy. That feeling of longing for the Christmas spirit... that is a gentle knock on the door of my heart by the One who made it wanting to come in.

As for you, StrawberryPie, I sincerely wish you all the blessings of Christmas from the One whose birth it honors.

I assure you this is no laughing matter. You know me well enough to know that I joke to cope. I have thought long and hard about what I am doing for several months. I have had long conversations with you about this, you know how I feel. I do not hate my wife, nor do I bear any ill will towards her. We just don't work anymore. We both know it and we both know it is time to quit. Both of us deserve to be happy and we have tried for many years to be happy together. We have just reached a point where we are tired of trying. Love should never be hard. It has been too hard on both of us to love eachother.

I love you, MO. wub.gif

Christmas time should be a time for bringing people closer together, unfortunately in a lot of cases, this time of year can put a strain on relationships. This time of year people are under a lot of stress with money worries and just the general hustle and bustle that the season has become. People get so caught up in it that they forget what Christmas is all about. I'm guilty too. My significant other has been jumping on my last nerve for the last few days. He might have a date with a frying pan later. ::kidding::.......................maybe tongue.gif


I hope things get better for you Strawberry. ((hugs))

Love should never be hard.


Without directing this at anyone specifically, I will comment broadly on the quoted sentence above. My experience is that it is simply not true that "love should never be hard." Love is not a feeling, it's an ongoing series of conscious choices to put someone else's interests ahead of your own. This inherently conflicts with our broken human nature. Our instincts tell us to put ourselves, our own happiness, and our own interests first.

Sometimes couples may indeed reach an end of a viable relationship - fair enough. But the idea that those who stay together do so because it has "never been hard" is just not the case. Not only is it sometimes hard-- it's often very difficult -- and there are stretches where it's constantly trying. There may be some times where it's less difficult and times where it's more difficult. But in no case will one find that it's "never been hard."

Ditto with "Love means never having to say you're sorry." That's bunk, too.

I am so Thankful for my hubby.

and I admit Christmas is a little blue this year for my family because of my Daddy... but we are trying our best to make a good one for for him..

For those of you who are having martial probelms I am sorry... but it would be breaking my heart right now.

Well, knowing StrawberryPie, she doesn't have any reservations about posting her personal life here, MySpace, or anywhere else, so I don't find it nesseccary to PM here. Not to mention, if she is a concern to others here at PCOM, then I feel that they may want or need more than one point of view.

I mean no disrespect to Kimmy. As I have pointed out, she is my best friend. She hides nothing and therefore I don't feel the need to hide anything regarding her unless she reqests something remain private. Obviously this is not one of those times.

I went through some very trying holidays with my ex-husband. His family didn't make the same fuss as my family did. What I learned is that MY happiness wasn't dependant on his participation (or help). I made my own celebration and invited him to join in when he wanted. I've never had a bad Christmas!

RIP sweet Ashton. We will never forget you.

Well,Today has been one of those days.One were you fight and dont know what will happen next.Its hard but,then sometimes you make yourself so numb that its not that bad. Being out of work has been awful.I have had to stay home pretty much 24-7 unless Im out job hunting or at a DR's appointments.(Because its hard to meet friends when you get older that and im broke)The mold in the rental house is worse and the landlord could give a crap.My bronchitis is almost gone and feeling better except for the excessive sleepiness.The positives are I have 2 upcoming interviews.So, I have been trying to be in the spirit even though we have not one decoration up,being that we may be moving out at the end of the month-which really sux.In the last yr I have moved 5 times.I just now have got my unemployment thank God which isnt much,but it helps pay bills. All I have been wanting to do lately is watch a christmas movie here and there and maybe find a cheap artificial tree-(which those words coming out of my mouth of "artificial tree " are like nails on a chalk board) I know beggars cant be choosy and we are moving soon somwhere who knows.I have always had the tradition of cutting down a tree and eating cookies and drinking cider.This year it looks as if I may have to be out on my own because all this fighting and I dont feel like this is helping either one of us.I didnt want to see this happen but,i cant stop it.I wanted to go to the christmas parade but i didnt feel well.Today I wanted to go to the live nativity scene and activities in Dallas.But,unfortanatly we had so much too do to try and make money that we couldnt go.It burns me up because i want to do things and i feel i cant. If i could I dont have any friends to go with. I feel stuck.Its like "cabin fever". I know Im 30 yrs old ,jobless and stressed out but I need some kind of fun.Is that selfish?


I'll be your friend!
You wanna hang out?

Without directing this at anyone specifically, I will comment broadly on the quoted sentence above. My experience is that it is simply not true that "love should never be hard." Love is not a feeling, it's an ongoing series of conscious choices to put someone else's interests ahead of your own. This inherently conflicts with our broken human nature. Our instincts tell us to put ourselves, our own happiness, and our own interests first.

Sometimes couples may indeed reach an end of a viable relationship - fair enough. But the idea that those who stay together do so because it has "never been hard" is just not the case. Not only is it sometimes hard-- it's often very difficult -- and there are stretches where it's constantly trying. There may be some times where it's less difficult and times where it's more difficult. But in no case will one find that it's "never been hard."

Ditto with "Love means never having to say you're sorry." That's bunk, too.
