I always feel better after talking.
Hardly anyone understands loving someone who has an addictive personality. But Emily does. She and Drew have gone through some of the same things that Robby and I have. Drew is struggling with porn and Emily is struggling with self esteem because of that. Emily is struggling with the pressure of trying to conceive and Drew is struggling with withdrawing within himself, with keeping the “I’m fine” mentality when he really isn’t.
I thought that it would be helpful to talk to her, but I didn’t expect how healing it would be.
I know I have trouble reaching out for help when I need it, so I am writing this to myself: You always feel better after talking.
