Anyone remember when my wedding ring got destroyed by our garbage disposal??? Yup, last December, just past our first Wedding anniversary…that sucked. I pride myself on not being hung up on material possessions; in fact I spent most of our relationship imploring Eric to find me something reasonable and modest (when the time came), which he very kindly did. It was definitely one of the most treasured possessions I have ever received; and to have my sink shred it up so effortlessly, made me realize that it was, in fact, priceless.
Eric (in guy mode) wanted to get it replaced/fixed right away, but I was too heartbroken to deal with it at the time.
This spring we were headed on a family cruise to the Caribbean (where I spent the 1st year of my life). It was very near our 10th anniversary together, and I felt it the perfect opportunity to do some ring shopping (window shopping at the least), but Eric just was NOT having it -ha! So that window passed…
…and then last week, some ring ad popped up in my Facebook news feed. I clicked on it; and after spending less than 10 mins looking around, I just got too overwhelmed and had to walk away. Well NOW, every time I get on the computer, there are ring ads popping up EVERYWHERE!! They won’t go away, and it just feels like pouring salt in my wound and now it’s 9 months later; and frankly,I’m just feeling very emotional and devastated about the whole situation!!!
Attachment leads to suffering….I know this; and yet, I still just can’t figure out how to move on… 😦
