Question for Bernie:
So, is it odd that to me it reflected upon my marriage and how bad it is? I realize I find myself sad all the time because though my husband is a nice “family man,” I feel lonely and neglected…he spends more time in his phone, computer, garden, bread machine, bike or watching sick TV series (that I just don’t waste time with) than he does with me. We never do anything together. We are completely out of sync and I am feeling it in my health. I spend lots of time alone even eating by myself. It is sad. I know lots of women see it as a blessing to have a nice man around who does groceries and cooks and helps around the house—should I settle for that as well?
I wonder if maybe he feels like George and wants to get rid of me like he wanted to get rid of Honey! The thing is I have tried talking to him and he goes back into his shell. I want to check out of this life. It is not what I want. But I don’t know how. I still have my kids around.
Anyway, just wanted to share that; I imagine your book reflects differently for many people. To me, it shed light on a sucky marriage. Thanks!
Tell him you want him to have dinner out tonight, so you are leaving him a sandwich on the front porch.
Follow your heart and be good to yourself. Do what makes you happy. He didn’t grow up with love as a child, but you can break through his shell with love and laughter. He is your child, too.
Peace and love,
