Monica Bielanko
A chronicle since 2005 of my marriage & move to Brooklyn in my twenties; becoming a mother in my thirties; moving to Pennsylvania and learning to amicably coparent after divorce in my forties while living 3 doors down from my ex-husband in a small country town.

Hiding The Fighting

It’s comments like this that make it hard to be honest when my marriage isn’t doing so well. Why give some unhappy, ham-fisted buttface ammunition? I’ll tell you why. I guess because there are so many people out there pretending. Pretending their marriage is amazing, pretending they’re happier than Charlie Sheen after a brick of coke and a hooker, pretending they have more money than they do. I hate that. I want you to know my marriage sucks sometimes. I want you to know that I’ve gone in the bathroom, turned on the shower and scream-cried into a towel. And I want to know that about you too. Because it helps us all feel a little less lonely in an increasingly isolating world.
It's what I'm babbling about today.
