Much like learning a new language, I'm deciphering the nuances and unspoken words [...]

"You'll always be looking for something better" he said.  "What you want is unobtainable" he said.  These statements came in a heated moment shortly after I softly let him know I didn't think we were going to work.  These words from a man I valued, hurt.

You were speaking about your own situation and you said to me “my child could not handle my emotions”. This was a HUGE “lightbulb moment” for me and it forever changed the way I dealt with my emotions when I was around my daughter!
