Hold your horses
To those who may have been offended - none was intended. It was a rather blunt writing after seeing a few blogs dealing with a mixed orientation marriage where things were not going as was desired. I certainly didn't set out to spend my one year anniversary post shooting down those trying to make something work that I could not.
Just prior to starting this one I put on my other blog how I hope this has stirred a center of conscious thought. So let me redirect the cross examination a bit. What I hope everyone can take away from the previous post was an opportunity for themselves. To give yourself the permission to ask "Why am I/we doing this?" And to ask it of yourself and should you be so fortunate, your significant other, on a frequent basis. Is it out of duty, commitment, faith, hope devotion, love, fear, comfort..... Only you can ask the question and (I hope) honestly answer it.
There's a line at the end of Back to the Future. It goes something to the effect "the future is yours, so make it a good one." So despite my on the surface cynicism of the last writing I hope and pray you are all able to carpediem... in whatever way that means for you.
