The Story Behind Today’s Gift
She put everyone else first. She works with women and children that have been sexually and physically abused. She hates to see suffering. She spends her time with strangers, acknowledging their pain and helping them heal. She swallowed her own hurt and ignored her own aching heart. She put her husband and child first. She’s been told that that’s what a good wife, a good mother, a good woman does. She rationalized it. Her husband only hurts her verbal and emotionally. How can she complain about mental abuse knowing how much worse it’s been for others? And so the years passed. She gave him second chances, third chances, fourth chances, a hundred chances. She’s forgiven a thousand times. She’s hoped and she’s given up hope and she’s hoped again. Intellectually she knew that she deserved better, but she loved him and so she stayed and kept putting him first.
Not anymore. This is it. This is the moment that everything else was leading up to. She’s about to do the bravest thing she’s ever done. She’s about to love herself more deeply than she’s ever done before. She’s leaving him.
Her longtime friend has been waiting for this day for years. She knows how huge this decision is and how scary. She wants to give her every bit of magic and support the world can offer. She wants her to break free, heal, and be happy.
