Taking a stand

I went to see Julie, the therapist, today.  Talking to her is SO good! 

I had made the appointment last week, before this past week-end when I made my decision.  Before the final straw.   Hmmm…..

Anyhow, she said something very interesting.  She said, he is really showing where he stands on things, isn’t he.

I hadn’t really thought about it that way before.  But he is.  Not helping our daughter with a car. Not paying health insurance for our daughters.  Not going to counseling.  Not stopping sex when I am crying.

Inaction is a form of action.  By refusing to do these things, he is, indeed, taking a stand.

Evidently, a stand against me.  Against our daughters. 

It was reinforcing to me for her to say that.  Talking with her always helps me to have a little more clarity.

She also told me that she was proud of me for all the steps I had taken in the months since we last talked.
