Re: My Wife Sent me the Divorce Papers...
I'm so sorry, but it's true, your wife has a free will and can choose to walk away, as much as it hurts. I've sort of been through the same thing, and I learned the hard way that when we lose something we really wanted, it wasn't the thing we wanted that we were supposed to have, but rather the lesson we learned from having lost it.
It's good that you have become a more mature, devoted, patient and loving man. These qualities will serve you well as you and your wife work out custody issues with your child and it will help you be a better co-parent. And who knows, maybe someday you will meet the woman of your dreams and the lessons you learned from losing this woman will make you a much better partner for the next one. Or maybe after several months, or even years, you and your wife might come to a point where you both wish to try again. You never know. But all you can relaly do now is grow and learn from this experience. Be a better person. Show your wife you've become a better person, just by being this person. By respecting her choices, by being reasonable, fair, calm, mature, by NOT hounding her, begging her, cajoling her to come back to you. Her heart must do what it must and you can't turn it by force. Be the best man you know how to be for yourself and for your daughter. And what is meant to be is what will be. Good luck.
