I love you. But I’ll never look at you the same.
From day one, my trust in you was absolute. The most I have ever trusted another human being in my adult life. I had not one shred of doubt that you were the one for me, and I the one for you. We felt so completely right together, on the deepest level I’ve ever known. Being in each others arms was like knowing the universe. Everything made sense.
When we had Felix and he became the center of our world, it created some distance between us, as we had to expand our bubble to include him. His troubles starting this incarnation of life threw a monkey wrench into our bliss. And over the course of a year or two we almost entirely forgot the bond we share. It felt broken, irreparable.
As I needed to focus more on helping our son, and you financially supporting our family, the distance between us grew so big that you broke your commitment to me, your wife and life partner. You pulled away from me, emotionally and physically. You neglected our bond as I pleaded for you not to... and then you shared your affections with another woman.
