Divorce, I understand. There is no such thing as a friendly divorce, nor easy. You may have felt that you were alone before and perhaps you were; you weren’t; now you will know what alone means.
This world in which we live revolves around two’s. An even, natural number; one is an odd number; folk do not seem to know what to do with a one. Take one shoe; unless you have only one leg and one foot, of what use is one shoe? a male one is more acceptable compared to a female one.
A female one gets seated in out-of-the-way places; not given good service; placed (so the servers think with great pity) in places that others will not observe they are alone. At church, the good God fearing folk developed classes particularly for one’s; was it really for them? or was it because they did not know how to include a one with two’s?
Every major institution developed a service for the minority of one’s; for their own good, of course. Why? Because the wary two’s did not know what to do with the renegade one’s. If the coin were flipped you might find that the majority of ones (particularly the snobbish intellectual ones, like me) chose a one for survival.
My time became my own; my soul became my own; my thoughts became private only to me; the world and those about me became clothed in a different hue and I learned that one’s can be alone without being lonely; that suffering meant I could also experience and know greater joy; that the challenges I conquered were based on my courage and initiative; I was me, one, for better, for worse; til death.
I became true to me and my values; because I loved and respected me more, I had more to give away; my children faced new growth though challenges they had to meet. We all grew with each other and became the best that we could.
