Thanks so much everyone. I had gone away from this site to go seek my own path. I've been learning how to debunk all those things and beliefs that don't fit in my life and focus on clearing away my true thoughts.
I checked my email tonight and found tons of replies all of which were exactly what I had just started learning. I am so happy to find that there are others out there who do encourage in the way I really needed. Thank you all again.
We did end up talking things out. It is all very new and it does hurt along the way trying to focus on what I want in life rather than what is expected. But it has allowed us to actually talk much more than we did before. I am determined that we will get through this and build something much stronger.
