I've been reliving some very difficult times.
My friend is in pain. She's sad, heart-broken and I know where she is right now. It's not a good place.
When I lived through this, when my marriage was shattered to bits, I did it alone. I had my mom to help with my 3 year old ray of sunshine, and the housework... but I had no confidant.
For a long time, I was numb.
I went into a period of denial that basically lasted years.
It was a long road back to myself.
I'm free now, from the pain.
I let love back in.
'If you said good-bye to me tonight,
There would still be music left to write.'
