A Reader Responds
On October 18, Bubby responded to a letter from a recently divorced woman who was having trouble understanding why she couldn't bring herself to date. She had two kids, and a good attitude about life... but couldn't shake the feeling that maybe she wasting the best years of her single life away by staying home with the cat.
Bubby responded, "I guess you have not gotten over your divorce yet, but you will. " Well, that was some pretty blunt insight for a grandma to call this woman out on. But was Bubby's response right on, or in left field?
Our sweet reader lets us know...
Thank you so much for answering my letter. You are right. I am not over my divorce. I hadn't thought about it before, I had just thought I had moved on which in essence I have. I guess I have just not moved on far enough to accept it. Strange how one sentence from someone else can have such an impact.
I think at this point I resist dating so much is because I want to be there for my kids. They need me above anything else that is going on.
Again thanks for answering and your insight.
