My marriage has literally come crumbling to the ground in the past two years. It almost ended a year ago, and again six months ago.
Things needed to change permanently. I had grown all I could possibly grow in the paradigm we had created, and now I was ready to continue growing in a more healthy direction; and most importantly, WITH my husband, if he was ready and willing to do whatever it took to make it work.

I believe that because of their high anxiety and stress levels, they have justified themselves in abusing and using their children (and …
They're growing up! I have loved watching them grow into the best of friends. Where Angela seemed the odd one out for a long time, these two do great playing together for hours now.
