Back To Business

It had been conveyed to me that years might pass before I could grasp a sense of acceptance regarding the profound decisions made about a marriage that had shaped the fabric of my last eleven years. Merely three weeks ago, the weight of these decisions seemed an insurmountable peak. Many voiced concerns of my potential descent back into alcoholism, fearing my impulsiveness would cloud the clarity that this was the necessary course. Yet, after countless heartfelt discussions, tears shared, embraces exchanged, and reaffirmations of love and gratitude, an epiphany dawned upon me. Everything occurring was preordained—this was the destined close to that chapter. Sobriety enabled me to experience the depth of my emotions unabridged, confront them directly, rather than numb them and accumulate unresolved pain. For the longest time, my partner, my anchor, witnessed my peaks and troughs, all the while championing my aspirations. While my lifestyle wasn’t always attuned to marital bliss, her unwavering love sustained our journey. I began to heed the counsel of those wrestling with their alcoholic demons, closely observing their handling of similar predicaments. These interactions illuminated just how transformative my sobriety had been. I cherished every new day, deriving meaning from every moment, be it processing my emotional turmoil or clutching onto my waning sanity. My prayers took the form of candid conversations with the universe, devoid of formality. The serenity of my spirit hastened my comprehension. When my daughter eventually reads this, she should know that although her parents tread separate paths now, our love has never faltered. This is evidence of the profound horizons sobriety unveils when one commands their actions. Heart brimming with love and a renewed sense of purpose, I now realign my focus towards my aspirations, the path to my dreams clearer than ever. I ceased soliciting prayers and instead directed them outward, hoping others find the strength I discovered to overcome the facets of themselves that erode love and acceptance, driven by ego and delusion. Today, I awoke immersed in gratitude. Grateful for the unwavering support of my family, for love that has evolved, and for the propulsion it offers towards my goals. Perhaps I was never destined to be the quintessential husband—after all, one cannot serve two masters. But crafting a world for my loved ones, that’s the mission I was bestowed from the outset, and I’m resolutely on that path once more.
