You want to leave and be done with the whole mess, don’t you? But because there are kids in the mix, the ones you treasure, you surely can’t let them down by running out on them.

Day after day, you scream silently wondering if you will ever get past this, if you can ever love him again because right now, you just don’t. You hate him for what he has done….
