“[Our daughter’s] going to be a big sister… and…”
I thought this would be another routine visit to my ex’s place, except that day turned out to be anything but normal.
For the past five years, being the only woman to give birth to his child was my emotional safety net. It was a distinction no one else had.
But with one short sentence, my entire world came crashing down.
Honestly, I couldn’t process anything else my ex said after hearing those words. Mentally, it was as though I’d been hit by a Mack truck and lied waiting for the coroner to collect my lifeless body.
Granted, physically we hadn’t been together for quite some time. Yet emotionally, there was very much an attachment there.
