With a little help from my friends.

I'm lucky to have the friends that I have. This evening, I talked with a couple that I've long been friends with about the decline and fall of my marriage.
The wife happens to be a family counselor. She saw how my ex was behaving through our marriage, and had often tried to subtly tell her that the way she was treating me was hurting our marriage.

I want to spare y'all the details, but to hear from friends and family that I didn't deserve the crap that was happening in the marriage made me feel validated.

For my part, I'm learning that I'm much better off being alone than trying to carry way more than my fair share in a relationship and be ridiculed for my efforts.

Still, it's going to be a long time before I consider myself ready for anything beyond friendship with benefits. Still feel emotionally drained from my marriage and divorce. Even if the right person for me showed up anytime soon, it wouldn't be fair to her to be with me. I need to be a bit selfish for awhile, and I don't mean that in a negative way. But I'm not boyfriend material for some time to come.

All the good things in life are worth waiting for. You will know when you are ready to have another relationship. There's no need to rush.
