I made it clear, I need a break. I need him to be away from me. It may take 6 months, or maybe six years, I don't know. I don't feel safe with him. I don't feel respected, appreciated, adored. I feel misused, misunderstood, and mistreated. I need a break.
I believe marriage is strong enough to handle separation. Sometimes people need to be by themselves to grow, if it is ever going to happen. I hope this is the case with my husband, if not, at least he will already be gone.
I'm taking a break. Giving myself a "Hall Pass" from marriage. I'm done!
