Mistakes I Didn’t Make

I can love deeply but I won’t compromise my beliefs and attributes that I know are right for me. I know you should embrace your partner and share in what he does and his beliefs. However if some of those will bring you down I wouldn’t.

One time I thought I was wrong but as I look back, I know now that I would have probably ended up as an alcoholic or addicted to drugs. Now the thought of being with them scares me. I often say that I took the vows seriously but they didn’t. Yes I was married to them.

I have since moved on and have had a long relationship with my present husband. We have been together for about thirty years. I must be doing something right. It hasn’t always been what I want. That is not what I mean. I have compromised. I found out that it takes work, on being with that person, sometimes understanding and patience from both.

Sometimes I have felt love and yes there was a time when I thought the love was gone. However I stayed and it came back. It still needs work but that is just part of life with someone. I attribute my staying is because I was raised in a strict Catholic environment. I have recently let that smart teenage girl back in me to make decisions.

Good Boy Or Bad Boy

Why didn’t I see you, your kindness, loyalty, and respect.  You were there to comfort me when I was hurt, when I felt that I couldn’t be enough for them.  Still I was always with a bad boy for the thrills and excitement or is it just that I had to feel needed and that they needed me.

Finally I realized that I couldn’t help them because they would have to become like me and didn’t  want to change.  For some reason I was scared to become them.  So I turned to you but this time I got thrills with love.  I asked you how did you change and you said that you were always there  I just didn’t look hard enough to see.

So I got the two in one, the good boy and the bad boy.  I took a pledge in marriage to you and I’ll be with the two the rest of my life.  Thank you for waiting and being there.
