Dread & Acceptance

I have my first divorce mediation appointment with my wife in 30 minutes.

I'm terrified she'll say something to hurt me. There are a million things she could say.

I know that, no matter what happens, it will not last forever. I will move through this point in time to those beyond it, and no matter what I feel over the next few hours, it will not be what I feel for the next few years.

But I'm pretty scared of getting my feelings run through the cuisinart.

Work has been kicking my ass this week. I'm very stressed. But all of this will soon pass.
