I do what I can by offering vengeance (does anyone else wish they were Anya from Buffy? No? Just me, then? Ok!), solace and the chance to vent.
It does make me go back and review the problems and successes in my own relationship, though. Ours is not the best or the easiest but there is no-one else in the world with whom I want to fight through it. So I guess that is my clue that I am doing the right thing. I love Emmanuel and while he sometimes annoys me, neglects me and drives my up the wall on purpose, I CAN imagine my life without him, and it would be far worse than what I've got now. I know he feels the same.
So I shall ever persevere. Emmanuel and I against the world.
