OK Ed wrote me a letter here and I wish to share it.
What do I say to you that I haven’t said before and it seem the truth. I can say this. I can say that. I have said lots and lots and lots and meant it at that point but to fall back into the same rut over and over again. I am not going to say I cant live without you. I am not going to try a guilt trip. I am not going to try to use Katie as an excuse to get you to come back. I am going to stand on my own two feet and take responsibility for what I did and made you do. Thank you for the kick in the ass. I needed it.
I read this on the internet and it talked to me. Life itself is a misery and nobody can tell what can be of it. Those that can tell what can be of it are those who cannot tell us because they are far from us (dead). Over the last week or so I have had a lot of time to think. I know now what I did and am going to correct it. I took advantage of you daily. I expected you to get Katie up, take her and pick her up from school, cook dinner, laundry, clean and keep up with Katie. A marriage was well as a D/S is a give and take. And all I did was take and take. I took months and in some cases years to take care of issues that should have never become an issue. I was more worried about pleasing with gifts and other things than bills and a place to live. I listened to you but didn’t listen. I went into this lifestyle only 50% percent. I took the good but didn’t want to do the leg work when things were bad. I stated things and then let them go. I set down rules and I didn’t follow the rules. I sit up punishments and didn’t do the punishing. We went to parties and just sat and watched. The excitement in your eyes when watching was like a 6 year old at Christmas and I just sit there and didn’t do anything about it.
Well things have changed and are changing. I am learning and going to learn the rest of my life. I know understand there is issues with me that I cannot control and have to ask others for help. I want to learn. I want to experience. But I want to do these things with you. It took you leaving a SECOND time. You were willing to give up your life and your child to better yourself when I should have been bettering both of us. And that will not happen again. It shouldn’t take a kick in the ass to show the love I have for you. It shouldn’t take you telling me in a blog that I took everything from you and didn’t show you much.
I wish I could say right now for you to come home. But I will not do that. You need to have your break and enjoy life for a little. But when I am ready I am coming to take you back. I am coming to re-claim what is mine and shouldn’t have never lost in the first place. To show you I am the person you know I can be. To be the person you saw all the time and just wanted me to be.
Have fun. Go to clubs. Experience life for a change. We have been together since 1989 and you didn’t have a chance to explore life to the fullest. But remember when we do re-join life will be different. Life will be fun. You will not be a sad and lonely person. I shouldn’t have brought you to this point. And friends will remain friend and I look forward to having a wonderful, beautiful exciting life together. I will not keep you from people anymore. After you come back down if you want to go visit. You will visit. We can remain part of Bear’s family. I truly liked the both of them and the friends we met while up there. I am doing a new website and will eventually give the address to you once I get it to where I want it.
I love you. I miss you. Have fun. We will see each other in a short time
I'm not even sure how to respond to this. Truthfully the trust in that relationship is gone for me. I am not sure if it can be won back. Am pretty sure I do not want to try agian. Here I feel safe and secure. I know I will always be cared for. That is not a feeling I've had before and I like it. We discuss everything is a family. No arbitrary decisions are made, which is also something I was not used too. I used to discuss things, but never got anywhere with that. Plus the lifestyle really had nothing to do with our breakup. In fact it might have made me stay longer then I otherwise would have. I love the lifestyle, and not going to give it up at this point, but I have to have a partner I can trust. Unfortunily its just not my husband. Even little things I ask him just at times seems to much. Case in point I asked him to send a resignation letter from me to Pauline for our boards munch. Didn't get done. His answer to that was to tell Pauline I had quit like she didn't already know that, and now she is still bugging me about it. Its a small simple thing, but just a hint of what I deal with daily when asking him to do anything. I do not believe anything will change. Have been there way to many times before. Plus he truly doesn't get the lifestyle relationship. It's not about him being Dom and bossing me around. Its about trust, honor, and integrity. If he says something he has to mean it not just say it to appease people. Ok there's my rant for the day....be well.
