  1. “Just get a divorce.” What?? After over 40 years of marriage to a man who is in his 48th year of being a paraplegic? Just what…………leave him to fend for himself? Abandon him? No empathy for our situation, words of understanding, support, encouragement. Is it me? Dear Jesus, please give me the wisdom when I encounter these people.

    I try to avoid using “just” responses/advice because I know how annoying and useless it can be. Of course that doesn’t stop me from using “just” phrases in my self talk. I’m always telling myself to just get over it. I guess that makes me my own worst enemy!

  3. This post is spot-on! You’ve articulated something that I have felt through the years, but never defined.
