The phrase “my marriage is complicated” is a thought.
An optional thought. At times I had felt that my marriage was an exception to some rule and that I was justified to expect certain things of my spouse.
What was I really doing? I was avoiding taking responsibility for my actions. I was blaming my emotions and my results on someone else and not myself.
We have now gotten to this beautiful place.
This place where there aren’t expectations and where we both get to just be.
We are able to be our organic selves, and we mutually love each other for existing.
It is clean, it is uncomplicated, it is beautiful.
It’s not without disagreement or random annoyances (sorry I forgot to put your charger back again babe!), but the yin and yang create this beautiful ebb and flow of something beautiful: our journey together.
