Change in direction!

Good afternoon!, 

I hope all is well with you. I have started to post a work that is a departure from the last posted effort. It is important to me that you know my intent regarding putting together a collection of letters written to a woman for whom at one point I would have glady perished for, and in truth (at least from a certain perspective) I almost did perish. The point is, at the time of this writing (roughly ten years ago) I had resolved that I loved her, and that I was to keep to my intended end with her, which was until death do us part. Many horrible things happened in my life one after the next and I became a sad man. Now I know why these things happened, but this is only after a long and very dark night of soul as the cool kids call it these days. 

That said, she was not wrong when she stated that I was not the same man. Therefore, to do somethign silly like assign blame has no value. It takes two to make a relationship work, and both parties have to be in it until the end no matter what, else you get is what we have in our world these days; which is well over a 50% divorce rate. I will state, as should be apparent, that it was not my idea to terminate the marriage; however, and again, with time, I understood that even though it was not my desired end, it held much value for me, as well as some seriously dark nights and days. 

The purpose of this work is to help those who struggle with long-term relationships, and to help them remember why it was that they chose their mates. Further, I almost beg us all to stop holding on to the past as if keeping score, as this will only build a bridge to your future desire to leave, as things done will seem to gain weight until one does not wish bear this weight any longer. 

Anyone could respond with the fact that my marriage failed, and this is a valid point. To be honest, I have kept this work out of my portfolio on other medias for this seeming hypocracy. Yet again, if this work can help even one person then it is worth leaving out there for all. Again, I hope all is well.
