Often I would refuse to look at the reality of a situation because I was caught up in the fantasy: the projection, the image of what I wanted something to be.
It could be very addictive living in my fantasy.
It was a tantalizing distraction.
Attaching myself to the fantasy allowed me to focus my attention, my time, my passion on the object of my projection and away from myself.
Life was moving on… but I was not.
There came a time during my divorce; when I had a brief moment of clarity.
In that moment… I saw the relationship for what it was… and what it would never be.
The clarity came as a gift: a moment of calm understanding at a trying time.
As my divorce progressed, moments of clarity appeared frequently.
I began to step back from the fantasy of the situation, embrace the reality of my life, and move forward with a mind that was not clouded by distraction.
“Dear God, help me to let go of illusion and fantasy. Help me to see the reality of my day-to-day life and move forward on the path that you have chosen for me.”
