Tales of the Ex @ RomanceClass -
His timing on getting back into my life was welcomed

I dated this guy on and off for over twelve years. I was madly in love with him the entire time. In early November of 2002 he sought me out after another time apart. He apologized, said all the right things, and I believed him. He told me he always saw me as a pillar of strength, and that he wanted to be the same for me. He had started counseling, started getting physically healthier too, and had cut back on the drugs.

His timing on getting back into my life was welcomed. My dad was in the final stages of his life, and I really needed a pillar to depend on. We spent time together getting to know one another again, crying, laughing and just talking. It was as if we hadn't been apart. We were falling in love again, I thought. We both wanted to make this the time we worked it all out and got married. So what happened?

December 13, 2002, 6:00AM: my father passed away after a final week of struggling.

December 13, 2002, 12:00PM: my "pillar" crumbled. He left me six hours after my father died for another woman, without explanation and without warning. I was devastated. Just when I needed him most, he was nowhere to be found. He morphed from being my safety to being a coward. I had been sucker punched. Again.

July 4, 2003 - my life went on. I met the man who eventually became my husband. I would never have had the opportunity to meet him if I was still with my ex. My husband has held me and loved me unconditionally while I slowly unpack the baggage caused by this previous hurt.

It still stings somedays, and it is doubly painful to remember the day my father died. I lost the two most important men that day within a matter of hours. No one will ever replace my dad, but it is lucky thing for me husband is twice the man and ten times the human being my ex is. I don't feel the sting as often anymore, only sometimes. My husband makes sure I laugh at least a little on those days, and he takes care of me if I can't do it for myself.
