I Thought It Was True Love, So I Ruined My Life For It

I left my wife. I divorced her. We share four kids. All for True Love.

I was so wrong.

And I can't undo what I've done.

I would if I could.

I miss my old life every single second of the day.

But there's no getting it back.

And so I'll live with this self-hate, this guilt, this shame for the rest of my days.

I failed. I have failed. What do you do with that?

  • I did the exact same thing. I divorced a wife who loved me for a much younger woman who was exciting and wild and unpredictable. What I didn't realize was that I was marrying a w****. A total w****. I thought she was just s**-crazed for me. And by that I mean that I allowed myself to believe that lie. Now, there's no love in my life. And I'm married to a w****. I hate where I am and who I'm with.

  • The only thing more pathetic is watching you beat yourself up over it... Hey, I didn't say stop!

  • I'm living a lonely life. Married. Kids. The wife is busy being busy with no time for me. And they wonder why old men wonder.

  • Oh boy , really . Get a clue your wives avoiding you because your probably a self absorbed ass.

  • The poor kids

  • You have to accept it. You did what you did because you thought it was right at the time..regardless of maybe how you went about it. Would there be a chance to rekindle something with your ex wife? Sometimes you can go back, it does happen. But I would suspect your ex wife has moved on and may not want to take a chance that you won't do it again. You can't go back. So it would never be like it was, it would be something different. Your exwife and kids have been forever changed. But you need to move forward. Leave the hate and guilt. Come to terms and forgive yourself. Repair the friendship with your ex wife so that you can both be amicable and be present for your kids. Take care of yourself so you can be happy mentally, physically and emotionally. And start again to search for love.
