“The only thing more unthinkable than leaving was staying; the only thing more impossible than staying was leaving. I didn’t want to destroy anything or anybody. I just wanted to slip quietly out the back door, without causing any fuss or consequences, and then not stop running until I reached Greenland.”

― Elizabeth GilbertEat, Pray, Love

The mere though…

The mere thought of divorce terrified me. To me, divorce symbolized failure.

Annette Funicello

This is a common thought amongst married and unmarried folk alike. When speaking to my many gent and lady friends who have not yet married….this is cited as the number one reason they have not taken that plunge down the altar. They don’t want to fail….to me not giving yourself the option to experience marriage or true companionship like marriage, is limiting your growth as a person…and to me not trying epitomizes failure. Marriage to me is a beautiful experience. While my marriage did not last…..I do not think it was a failure. It allowed me to learn more about myself and grow into the wonderful woman I am today. I was able to better learn my own needs and desires from life and adjust accordingly. If given the opportunity, I would do it all over again. Cherish your marriage….and if it is not working…don’t view it as a failure but as a learning experience that will help write the exciting next chapter in your life.
