**This is in reference to comments left on Day 22.**
"Its to bad, that you committed yourself to a marriage and children and then realized this is not what you wanted." Anonymous has assumed that marriage and children "isn't what I wanted." What she doesn't realize is that marriage and children is all I ever wanted. Anonymous did not live with us for fifteen years...Anonymous will never understand.
"I sure hope the kids don't realize that your being a mother and stay at home mom has left you unfullfilled as a person." Anonymous does not know the relationship I have with my children...she has never listened to the words shared between us. My children absolutely understand that in order to be complete, people need balance in their lives and sometimes that means time away from each other. Anonymous does not understand the seething anger I feel when I read the words "being a mother...has left you unfulfilled as a person." Being a mother is the single most rewarding part of my entire life. I said that being a stay-at-home mom made me feel "isolated", "lonely", and "disconnected from society." Not once did I say it left me unfulfilled as a person. Shame on you for putting words in my mouth.
"Many women are completely happen raising children and being in that role." Anonymous doesn't realize that I don't give a shit about what makes other women happy. This is my life, not theirs.
"Many women stay married with children and still are able to commit to it and also are able to have contact socially and are able to explore their interests and desires." Anonymous does not realize that I am not "many women," I am Kim Bieske and because of so many things she does not know and never will, I chose to separate from my husband. I am not like "many women." I chose to not be a doormat and live a lifetime of unhappiness. I am sad that Anonymous assumes I left to "explore my interests and desires," as that is a selfish and shallow reason to split up a family. Those were not my reasons. Not even CLOSE.
"It doesn't mean you have to walk out on your husband and children to accomplish this..." Anonymous, what do you mean by "walk out?" Is that synonymous with abandon? You make it sound like I just left...*poof*. Why don't you come for a visit and I'll show you exactly what "walking out" has meant.
Anonymous, you have not spoken to me about any of this...why would you make such assumptions? You have made assumptions without knowing the facts, yet you ask others to not do so themselves. Of course I know who you are and believe me, you do not want to know my side of the story...and your son does not want you to know either.
