I must say im no expert, im just imparting my experiences and my route out.
Looking back to my own slippery slope, which I feel I was able to put the brakes onto with help, the most toxic question I kept coming back to
- Louise leaves me
- I lose my job
- Mum dies
- I never see my brother again
I could go on for infinity to the title what if the world ends today
OK some of these questions are based in reality, mum will die but I can enjoy the time I have and worry about that when it happens.
I do see my brother, and shock, I’ve made my peace with my sister in law.
Louise and I are strong but shit happens and that doubt came from my ex just dropping a bombshell, whilst I was trying to be a father to my then 3yr old daughter. But if it does happen I’ll get over it in time, but I’m not gonna let it spoil the here and now.
