| | Re: Coping difficulties
Tonight I figured a little escapism might help. That turned out to be a mistake. I can't afford it, but I told my son I'd take him to a movie. I wanted to pick something at the discount theater and most of the shows were comedies....not what I was ready for under the circumstances. I picked "Defiance". Bad choice. It's a depressing movie, and the theme just reinforced to me the importance of family.
I'm going to try going to church tomorrow, but I also dread talking to anyone there. Someone's sure to politely ask how I'm doing or about my wife (who often works on Sunday), and I'm supposed to just pretend everything is normal. I always bragged about my wife to folks, how lucky I was to have her, etc. I have no idea how to now tell people that now she walked out on me, especially when I'm holding out hope that this will still work out.
