Tess: I wanted that shared responsibility of taking care of one another

I was married young

I was married 20 years

About halfway through we began to drift away

I started to feel like I was mourning the marriage while I was still in it

I was going through the motions

I wanted that shared responsibility of taking care of one another

I needed to make sure that I did everything that I could

I needed to know I could look at my children and say I have tried everything I can do

I cannot take care of you until I take care of myself

There was no way I could give them a healthy life

You have to prepare how you are going to step forward if that happens

It’s just like any other emergency management plan

For me, it was a clean cut

I was prepared mentally to go on with my life

When my kids have asked about my side I don’t go there

Everybody is entitled to how they feel

I stopped worrying about what everybody else thought

I evolved

You do the best you can do that particular day

Give yourself time to breathe

Ground yourself again

My mom was actually proud of me for sticking up for my kids and sticking up for myself

It’s okay to make that change

Be true to yourself

You have to remember that if you’re not happy now there is going to be a time when you are happy
