Thank you so much for reading and responding, Lisa! I’m so sorry to hear that your relationship has ended, but you clearly gave it your very best. There is peace in that knowledge.
I really appreciate having your “expert” feedback. It’s truly ironic that I (!) am throwing out my relationship experiences since my background is CPA/tax geek/faculty.
You are far more knowledgeable than I, so I appreciated your entire response. You have validated some of my experiences/thoughts on the subject.
I wish you all the best as you navigate your new life!
