I am nearly 50 and have managed with no support to raise two wonderful sons, get my first ever mortgage and am successfully changing career. I am healthy.
I am therefore independent, strong minded and I suppose spiritual to break the cycle of my abusive background.
My manager's wife has never worked and according to my manager is only with him for his money. He stays because they have children and he is loyal and traditional. On their wedding anniversary she jetted off abroad with her friends!
However, I feel envious of her and I'm not proud of it.
I just wish my life had been easier. I know I have done the best in difficult circumstances and I truly hope that the second part of my life will be peace and happiness instead of struggling day to day.
I also admire my manager and wish I had someone like him in my life. Instead his wife is just horrible to him and I don't think either of them are happy despite their image.
