In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond. So hold the hand of the person whom you love rather than expecting them to hold yours..
Apologizing doesn’t always mean that you’re wrong and the other person is right. It just means that you value your relationship more than your ego.
I have been thinking recently about rebuilding my life and start… living.
I have been wrapped up in my career for the past 20 years and have done well. I enjoy what I do but I feel like I have not lived the way I want to live, be the person that I wanted to be. Maybe it is a mid-life crisis as I near 45?
I am taking steps to shift my time away from career to family. I am a single father with a 6 year old son. I split my time 50-50 with his mother and we are on great terms, very friendly and cool.
I’ve decided that on my days without my son, that I will focus on my “list” of things I need to do. Things I have put off for far too long. On the days I have my son I will dedicate my time on him 100%. That means everything else takes a back seat.
I have almost found a job closer to home that will hopefully pay the same or more. I currently have a 1-2 hour drive home every night. It’s annoying and cuts into family or project time. I could accomplish quite a bit getting 5-10 hours per week back.
Next is the project list…
Facebook and emotional infidelity.
But when one partner starts sharing himself or herself with another person, it chips away at the foundation of their core relationship – and starts building a foundation for a new relationship.
A decent read for people that are going through this or have been on the other side.
