ok – let me preface this by saying I have the MOST incredible caring loving husband EVER.
And I just told him this so he knows. 🙂
NOW. I feel like everyone I know’s life is falling apart (except – thankfully – ours)…
1st off – my mom called me in tears yesterday because my sister-in-law is so close to kicking my brother out of the house – she gave him a week to find a job or he’s out of the house (they live in florida, my parents in indiana, and he’d have to move back here if this happens…) – and he HAS been out looking. he had one last month that told him to come in and start and the day he did, they told him to go home because they decided they wanted someone else. He found one last week – went in for the first day and physically couldn’t handle the 100 degree outside weather he had to endure (he has some physical limitations…). He’s honest to god been looking for a job almost every day for the past 6 months – but everyone knows how bad this economy is and he just can NOT find ANYTHING where he lives.
and she refuses to move away from her mother so that they MIGHT be able to BOTH find a job. (i’m extremely mad at her and think she’s being selfish – because he has honest-to-god been trying to find something, he is NOT a lazy bum who doesn’t like to work).
he’s a very hard worker (when he has a job), he doesn’t drink, doesn’t do drugs, doesn’t run around on her – he honestly is a VERY good guy. so i have NO idea where she’s coming from.
and my mom is terrified that he’ll lose his son if he has to move back here (they have a 1.5 year old). i don’t think he will/legally can – but ya’ll don’t know HER mom (very controlling).
and now – I just talked to my best friend (and MOH) who I know has been having issues with her husband lately (they’re 28 and 29, btw and have been married for about 2 years) – and she just told me, “I hate his guts and I don’t love him anymore and don’t want to be with him anymore”. Won’t go into details – but a lot of it is that she told me he has put her into depression – NEVER complements her anymore – makes her feel like she’s a POS and isn’t worthy of anything. now, granted, she has gained a LOT OF weight lately (mainly due to the depression) but still he should be HELPING and NOT hindering it…
I know him and didn’t have any idea of how bad it really was. she wants to leave him. 🙁 – which yeah – i hate to say it, but if he really IS making her feel like this ALL the time then she should. she even admitted they HAVE been to marriage counseling and it did no good.
this just SUCKS!!!!! and – to top it off – mr. junebride’s brother – who’s a heart patient and is only 40 years old – has basically been told by the doc that he’s only got a few more years, if he’s lucky. 🙁
I know I need to be thankful for everything WE have – but this is so very hard right now to feel thankful for OUR jobs and OUR love and OUR health when our friends and family’s are all falling apart. it’s like things for my husband and I are great, personally…we have a FABULOUS house – I just got a promotion at work – AND i’ve finally got my own eating habits (disorder?) under control and have lost 30 pounds.
yet it’s hard to be happy about these things when all our family and friends can’t be happy in their own worlds. 🙁
sorry guys I just needed to talk. thanks.
