I’m slowly learning about myself.
It’s not deliberate or calculated.
It’s a series of accidental observations.
It turns out that I like doing yard work. I surprise myself at how orderly I am. I like the process of yard work and tidying.
These things I did while married because that was I figured a wife should do – no one cares now. I only have to please myself.
I eat dark chocolate and drink red wine. I like the combination. I don’t like apples. I eat more vegetables and haven’t bought apples in months.
I don’t know how to ask a romantic partner for emotional support. It’s a skill I lack. I can ask my friends, but not someone I’m dating.
I’m working on that.
