A couple of years ago my wife kissed another man. She drank too much and couldn’t think clearly. This kiss was very slight and lasted only for several seconds. Then she pulled that man away and told him, that she was married.
You might think that there is nothing special in this situation, hundreds of similar ones happen every day. However, I consider it to be special. The fact, that she told me everything proved once again, that my wife was always honest with me.
However, I still condemned her. It was my mistake. She could go with that man to his place, she could kiss him without even thinking about me and our marriage. But she didn’t. She came back home and told me everything honestly. It meant that she really loved me and I was important for her. I understand it now, but I didn’t understand it then.
I was really angry at her, but I didn’t show it openly. I wonder how she managed it and didn’t leave me. The way I behaved was really awful. We had no kids, so she could easily leave me, but she stayed. My mistake was not to appreciate it. But then she got a horrible diagnosis.
That day she told me that she was going to visit her doctor. She just wanted to get a check-up. I didn’t help her at all. I let her go there alone and hear this terrible news by herself, without any support.
That day I was sitting at work. I didn’t even think about her and what she was doing. I didn’t care. But when I came home, I found her crying on the sofa. She was diagnosed a breast cancer.
I didn’t know what to do, but I tried to comfort her. The most surprising thing for me was that she let me do that. After all I have done to her and after the way I treated her all this time, she let me be with her. She could pull me away but she didn’t.
The most astonishing thing was that she was trying to comfort me. She felt my pain and my feelings and was trying to help me. I understood that all these years I was punishing her for nothing. I was blinded by my pride and didn’t realize, that I was ruining our life and love all this time. I understood that I just didn’t deserve such a great woman.
Now I do my best to make her happy and help her to fight with the disease. I work a lot to provide her with necessary treatment, I buy her favorite food, because hospital one is horrible, I bring her flowers when she stays at the hospital overnight.
It took too much time for me to realize, that this woman is the best in the world and I really love her. I understand that she might not recover. But I will never leave her alone again.
