As to WHY I was emotional that's easy. It was genetics, my inherent personality, my upbringing, neglect, abuse and societies influence.
My husband is a nice guy. I would have been this way no matter WHO I married.
Wow, very inciteful.
THere is a woman who I work with and she is divorced, has been for 10 years and never re-married. I was talking to her about the dating scene and she said that she "can't meet any nice guys, blah blah blah). So I probed her a little bit about the guy that she just broke up with.
I asked her "why did you break up with him? DId you not like him? Was he a jerk? What was it?" She couldn't give me an answer and I basically concluded that the guys were not the problem, it was her lack of contentment; or at least that's how I perceived it.
This is the way I felt often times with my wife. She was expecting/hoping/praying/wishing that I would make her happy. I kept trying to be Mr. Right while also explaining that true happiness comes from within. I used to be miserable myself before I started on a path of self-awareness/self-actualization.
