Tarnation Joe Posted September 30, 2011 Share Posted September 30, 2011 I really screwed up my marriage and now I am separated from my wife of thirteen years. She says its not too late, and we're in counseling and there is hope. But she and the kids have been my whole world for a long time. Starting tonight, she has the house and kids again for a week. I've been such a insulated homebody that I have few friends. The ones I do have are busy, and I hate to mope around them anyway. I'm not too mopey, as there is hope. But I am really uncomfortable. I have to keep my spirits up to help the process of getting my family back together. I have to give her time and space. I have an empty bedroom at my parents house waiting for me and that's it. They aren't even there. I don't know what to do with myself. All it looks like I have left is to find a barstool every night until I get the house and kids again. I've never done that before, but I've got to find a way to keep myself busy, if only to be more healthy when we can work on the marriage. I don't know how its done. I haven't made a friend in fifteen years at least. I'm just wimping out and being scared of being alone, I know. Link to comment
