Can you recall that wonderful song “Release Me” sung by Englebert Humperdinck? Last night for the first time I could hear it and not burst out in tears. Forty years ago, that was his claim to fame, his boost to stardom.
At that stage of my life, my marriage was at a crossroads and each time I heard the words, “I have found somebody new” I cried. How could I live my life without this person, how could I be a single parent and survive? I believe with fortitude and determination and lots of love and support from my children I did survive and raise my three wonderful sons and made a good life for myself.
It was a feeling of yes I did “release you”- it was definitely a good thing to do. No more tears just gratitude. Amazing what time can do for a breaking heart.
