Don’t get me wrong here I have always been much focused when it comes to family matters and problems solving skills. My wide (then) Laura, to be fair is such a hard working woman. She was raised in a family of tree, being the bread winner of her family, she is very independent. She always put herself as the leader and supporter of all her siblings.
I know she has always been very careful of all her choices, she never had a boyfriend and that makes her really safe and used to being alone. I know there are times I consider myself lucky but just turned it down because of some reasons.
Then we met and everything was history. She was hesitant at first but we were young then and I don’t know, there might be something with me that she let her guards down. I got her pregnant and decided to build a family. We had 3 girls and 1 boy. I married herr to give her security that I am commited to her and in everything that we have. The life then was an exciting ride, colors everywhere, happiness, no not ever a single room for sadness.
We had these normal stages in marriage. First was the very sweet of all, the honeymoon stage. Ecerything is all happiness. Since I got her pregnant and we had kids, I asked her to quit working for I belive and also I was raised that way that I am the father and should be the one doing all the hardships for the family. I pleaded her to quit and just focus on our family. Cook, bake and just love us all the way.
She was very obedient then, she just said, she trust me and let me be the hero of the family. I was really happy then and couldn’t contain myself. I know that is too much to ask for her but, she said yes, and I am very much grateful for that. She then again let her guards down and trusted me once more.
Years passed, we had different ups and downs, no problem and all, she was there. She just stood beside me, always there to comfort me and love the kids. We sometimes argue, we yell, but then we compromised and really avoid arguing and things that shows no respect like fighting.
One day, something changed. Well actually, it isn’t just a one day thing, it occurs, most of the time, sometimes and worst, it happens daily. We may not notice it but we got used to being a far from each other. I started to realize that I am really not as composed as how I am now, for I still am not financially stable. (You wouldn’t believe how I was then)
So there, we talked, and then she said straight to my face, “She isn’t happy anymore….”
Fast forward to what I am now, I am a financially stable man. We are now friends we are both fulfilled with our career and so on. I guess she is having doubts about what we had then for the song “Look at me now…” simply applies.
