Doing the same thing over again expecting a different result

  1. They’re asking you if you won’t remarry? As if husbands are just there for the taking! That’s like a (grand)parent asking when they’ll be getting a (great)grandchild. A bit rude, non? 😉

    Some years ago I decided after the umpteenth split-up (having done that same thing over and over again) that I would stay single for a while. I planned to analyse why I always ran away from people I loved (first in my mind, and later for real). And like you, I always felt that having a partner kept me from pursuing my career (entirely my own fault).

    Well, I’ve analysed it (even more reason not to get involved again!) and my career is dead due to several immigrations with dire consequences, I’ve been severely peri-menopausal (out of the peri now, I reckon), but at least I can sleep diagonally without being awoken by heavy snoring, eat supper at 10 pm, I don’t get irritated by his loud, energy-depriving yawning while his slippers on his demotivated feet are dragging over the floor, and …. you know what I mean.

    Yes, it’s lonely at times, but wasn’t it when ‘he’ was around also? Isn’t that a worse kind of loneliness? In my home, harmony is mine. Vive l’harmonie!

    That is the energy and atmosphere that I know is setting me up for better things to come. 🙂

    1. I’m glad you now have harmony. Relationships can be so exhausting and identify with everything you say. I don’t miss having men in my life but I think perhaps society program’s us to miss something if we’re alone. I try to fight that feeling because ultimately I like being on my own. Loneliness within a relationship is a million times worse. Good luck with your career. It’s never to late to start.
