Im going to Mt Juliet tomorrow for the weekend… Snow coming
Cut the might out. Be done. You will be happier sooner if you rid yourself of the might. Ive been there minus the assault charge you have coming. Going to be hard for her to get money when you lost your job and you will work for cash only now. “And this too shall pass”.
If you guys pass through Kansas City on 70 let me know. I’ll buy you guys lunch.
Mine have a few chips on the leasing side and are mounted just like Justin’s. All in all, they’re holding up great.
Last thing. Lol. On the tundra you’re heading through and into brined road country. Make sure you run it through a car wash with under carriage jets a few times throughout winter.
Just passed Amarillo TX sbd still going strong. I don’t think we’ll go through KC though, but thank you. Looks like we are going to hit ice and snow when we get close to Memphis. Glad I got 4x4, and the truck came with snow chains too that I have in the bed. That’ll be convenient if we hit lots of ice.
I feel for ya bud and don’t know what to say. But I’ll say this:
I’ve been married for over half my life. It isn’t easy and takes a LOT of effort from both individuals. The biggest issue I think for many couples is they tend to be selfish and only see where their partner is failing and never see where they, themselves, are failing. Marriage is all about making each other happy in every way. Sometimes that means sacrificing your own needs or happiness to make sure your wife is happy. Men and women are very different and us men have a tendency to overlook things that might mean the world to our wives. Sometimes we work too much or hang out inbthe garage too many days in a row.
Marriage is respecting and loving the person you’re with. We all go through hard times, that’s inevitable! In the last year, my wife has lost her best friend on the face of the planet (her mom) and I quit a 6 figure career that I had been at for 22 years. We have had our 16 year old daughter get pregnant (she’s due next month), our 19 year old son has caused us legal problems that many 19 year old redneck boys do, it’s been the roughest year a husband and wife can endure. And believe me that there are times we struggle. And every couple does during a lifetime. But as Dr Phil puts it, there are “deal breakers”. It’s up to you what those deal breakers are. What you AND her can work past.
I’m a godly man after having been raised in the church my whole life but I NEVER force or preach that onto others. There is a movie that may touch your soul a little and you don’t even have to believe in god to watch it. The movie is called Fireproof. Do yourself a favor and WATCH IT. It may, or may not, open your eyes a little bit. And by no means and I’m saying this is your fault. I hate to admit this but, at 19 I married the sunday school teacher (litterally), she was the most cheating lying person on the face lf the earth. Infidelity is NEVER acceptable in any relationship. If you have PROOF your wife cheated then do yourself a favor a MOVE ON. Cheaters never deserve a second chance under any circumstance.
Thanks. I’m a believer too. I know all the right things to know and think and do and say, and it still didn’t work out, at least not yet. I’ve seen Flywheel, Facing the Giants, Fireproof, Courageous, and War Room. It didn’t fix my marriage though. My wife and I owned all of those movies.
@jzbreeland I too have seen these very REAL struggles. I came to realize that when ever I allow someone to affect me emotionally, to the point where I want to do something to them physically, I have allowed that person/thing to get between me and God. After I acknowledged how much I contributed to my current circumstances, it was only then that I was able to forgive my ex wife and move on. It didn’t take me long because I knew what God was doing. He has to remove the old inorder to bring in the new. The serpent was the first to invade this world with deception, and who did he deceive?
Not to just go all biblical on you, but the scripture say
““Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”
Matthew 10:16 NKJV
“My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands; For length of days and long life And peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;”
Proverbs 3:1-5 NKJV
Be encouraged sir. Trouble doesn’t last always. Sometimes we try to hold on to people/things that have no divine purpose in our lives. Where God is getting ready to take you he knows you don’t need the baggage you have. He has new life for you, a whole new world for you sir, one that is plagued with prosperity and business success. Learn to be patient. We want what we want, but often times what we want, don’t want us. I am not speaking from a book I am speaking from experience.
Hit me directly if you would like. I assure you earth has no sorrow that our God can’t heal. Yes, it sounds so easy to say when you are not sitting in it, but I assure you that if your relationship with him is right; the outcome won’t be what you had in mind but it will be the best outcome for “everyone” involved.
This post really has opened my eyes to the character of the people here. All of you are amazing !!! I am so fortunate that I decided to sign up.
Im very sorry to hear about your situation. I know this comes off as easy to “say” BUT time heals everything.
For every door that closes a new one opens. Youll get through this.
Plus I know it doesnt feel like it BUT you are so young and you have so much time.
That’s terrible. Good thing is you’ve said nothing but good things about her. I hope she knows now how you feel.
Keep your chin up man, the horizon is up ahead, stay strong.
Hang in there, it does and will get better! I went through almost the exact same thing.
Being with family will help!
My prayers are with you!
Justin, how about an update? Home yet?
Brother, try not to think too harshly of the gal who once meant so much to you. This too shall pass, and those fond memories shouldn’t be soiled by the bad ones. Time will likely expose returning home as the right move, and I wish you the best of luck. If this is your last crisis, you are indeed most fortunate.
