I thought things were getting better between my husband and I. I really truly thought we were finally moving in the right direction with our marriage. I thought we were making it work. But tonight I saw that maybe he hasn’t changed at all. Maybe I’ve just been seeing one of his many sides lately and for once it wasn’t a side I abhor. For the past month or so I’ve seen him be kind and caring, generous and thoughtful. And then bam. It’s like none of those moments matter anymore. It takes a single moment to kill a dream. And maybe tonight that moment has come. I couldn’t live forever in heaven, I keep telling myself.
