Dr Phil gave me this answer! Whether you love or hate him, the fact remains, his simple wisdom continues to amaze me.
In truth I needed an answer to this question, I had already been going to relationship counselling, in fact we were up to our fifth counsellor and three years had passed. Still married life had slipped into a silent abyss. With all my being I prayed for an answer, day after day. Despondent I switched on the TV. I had no interest in what was on, I was simply numbing the brain.
Dr Phil, looked intently at the camera, as if he was speaking to me and said,”unless you can look deeply into the eyes of your children and know you have done everything you can to save your marriage then you have no right to leave!!” he went on to add unless it is abuse, of any kind.
Next a women on the stage said in leaving her husband she felt she had waisted 35years of her life. Dr Phil compassonality said', “the only thing worst than wasting 35years was wasting 35years and one day.” He went on to add she was still young enough to start again, marry and even have more children, to built a new and amazing life for herself and her children.
This was it for me , at the time I was also 35years old. My life was to change from that day forward………stay posted
