Okay, I'll keep that in mind and try to be sympathetic. He's already feeling bad about himself, and he hasn't even left her yet (he's going to wait until after the holidays); he feels bad about making her unhappy. They have a lot of history and two grown children, so I can understand his love for her after all that time. So it's hard... But such is life, right?
I guess I should be thrilled; he wants to be my boyfriend, and now he'll be able to without cheating on his wife. It's just hard to be cheery about it when he's having a hard time.
Don't try to tell me who you are; tell me who you love.
The beauty of life is, while we cannot undo what is done, we can see it, understand it, learn from it and change. So that every new moment is spent not in regret, guilt, fear or anger, but in wisdom, understanding and love.
