Not an answer.
My wife, the love of my life and best friend is leaving me after 16 years. She is experiencing mindfulness and all sorts of meditation to keep up with her decision.
I am trying but I cannot find a use at all to this. The fact that I may be biased because she is doing it, my own feelings full of sadness, loneliness, incapable to “unlove”, leave my children behind, and just accept that a week ago she held my hand and kissed me and now she wants me away; is eating me alive, and telling me that mindfulness is a selfish process to deny your responsibilities in life, a “new” beginning without the strength to overcome past challenges. It is easy to exhale “past” and inhale “today” when you just give away everything else.
I am hurt, sad, desolate, heartbroken and I know that. I will remember everything in my marriage because I don’t see negative, never had.
