Day 31

The Album of Love & Thinking About Therapy

After the "diner incident," I was so full of rage that at 3 am I woke and started destroying every piece of her: I stuffed her clothing into a shopping bag, along with torn up photos, personal items, everything had to go. I stapled the bag, and dropped it off at her sister's the next day.

But I didn't know what to do with the album. It's a photo album of so many good times: vacations, meals, birthdays, days out, leisure times in. We once looked so happy.

I'm seeing her tomorrow night and I'm going to ask: what do you envision will happen if we go to therapy together? What will we accomplish?

Here's what I think she'll say: "I'm going to say a lot of hurtful things about you that I want you to hear and I'm hoping you'll listen. And I'm hoping that maybe you'll understand me better."

Because it's all about her. I wonder if I'll get a chance to bring up all the hurtful things she's done to me. More than likely, she'll deflect them all, because that's what she does: no responsibility, all deflection.

"I do that? Well, you once did as well."

The road to nowhere....

    Betty is right, you both need to move on, this relationship sounds very toxic. Find someone to make better memories with. Not ones that are a glimpse of happiness. X
