Despite the fact that many marriages end in bitterness and that a letter to my ex-wife would appear to reflect this mindset, not all unions end in divorce. Here is my divorce-related farewell letter to my wife: I have to admit, it seemed strange. When we made this choice months ago, I thought the world had come to an end. In all honesty,
I was worried about how life would be without you. But from where I’m standing, it appears lot more manageable. Fear makes the wolf bigger than he is, according to a German saying I once read. And I had genuine fears about living without you. For so long, you have been the only consistency in my life. In actuality, longer than anyone else in the planet. The voice in my head is you. For the past two decades, I owe you a great deal. So, on this first day of our new partnership, I thought I’d share a few things with you. I know it seems strange to write to you on this day, but life moves quickly and there is never enough time to hold back the appropriate words.
This is the reason I wanted to write my ex-wife, whom I will now have to call, a letter. So please allow me to share with you some of my sentiments and thoughts from today. I’m not easy to love, as we both know. I’m really driven, don’t get much sleep, crack jokes all the time, and you can always count on me to act inappropriately. Over the course of our years together,I have taken many more chances than I should have. It took me a while to realize that many of my dreams had turned into terrifying scenarios for you. My interests have always motivated me. My life is like a room full of dynamite in many respects. Even though we achieved some genuine success, it had a negative impact on the people I cared about. I apologize sincerely for it.
