Those crazy, carefree 80’s! Okay maybe not for me, I was by most counts considered to be a man. Whoever came up with that idea completely wrong. I was a kid trapped in a man’s body.
I have been told by experts that it takes 21 days for something to become a habit. I have also been told that for every day you spend in the hospital, it takes 3 to recover. I have had the misfortune to test both theories and find them to be true.
Along my journey, I have found that a person who has been divorced for 10 years or more is more likely to stay single. The reason, they have become accustomed to being alone and taking care of themselves. And of all the habits I have, that is the one I wish to break the most. I am only 8 years into single life, so I have two years left to break the habit.
But then I ask myself, is it worth taking a chance again on love and losing everything in a divorce. Really at this point in my life, I have everything I could ever hope for, except love, and that is a hard habit to break.
