You don’t walk out of a marriage unless you got faith. In yourself. In the soul mate who called you. I had faith oozing out of my pores. There was no question that this was the right thing to do. It was the most difficult decision I ever made telling my wife and children I was leaving. That can break a soul. But I had faith.

Turns out my soul mate was a vision of the spirit and a reminder of who I was and not a partner for life in the real world. Not even for a month. So I walked and went to live in limbo street. Meanwhile my wife never lost faith in me. Knew this was an aberration more than I did. So much faith, she had set me free.

    Sometimes wives know more than husbands. She really did have faith. It all takes faith, to leave, to stay, and to set free. A sad telling of your story, but lessons learned tell more. I have been in all these places.

    What a personal story of misplaced faith and enduring faith…thanks for sharing! I think we can easily fool ourselves when searching for our “soulmate”.

    I appreciate your openness in sharing such a personal story. The old saying “live and learn” comes to mind, but sometimes the risk we take in these lessons is extreme. Faith can move the wrong mountain, indeed.

    There is no risk when we hear the truth with our heart, not our ears, when we choose to live the absolute truth. But it takes a lot of power to do so. And power comes from Love.
