journey

‘On my wedding day, I felt like I was going to throw up. I wanted to run the opposite direction. I knew deep down I was making a mistake. I should’ve listened to my gut.’

“I knew this was someone I couldn’t spend my life with. I kept thinking about all the people who came, who bought us gifts, all the money spent on the wedding. I couldn’t back out now. No one knew what was going on in my relationship. I tried to smile big and be excited. I drank a lot that day. I had to keep it private.”

‘I was left at the altar. Instead of ‘I do’ I got 5 gut-wrenching words. ‘I just can’t do it.’ He didn’t look me in the eye. I caught him in a half-run and collapsed to the ground, sobbing.’

“I saw my mother rise up. ‘I AM GOING TO KILL HIM!’ I looked out at a sea of concerned faces, my own red from embarrassment. I just wanted to know who she was. The reason my heart was blown to pieces. When I returned home, all of his things were gone. Then it came. Two days later. A message to my sister.”
