When I think of endurance, usually the first thing that comes to mind is the shirt that Napolean Dynamite wore that said endurance. It makes me laugh everytime. But on a serious note, how much endurance can a person go through before they actually feel that they are going to break?
I just found out that my brother and his wife are getting a divorce. I’m not going to lie, it hit me very hard and I did not take it lightly. They have been married for 11 years and they are one of those couples that just seem to mesh in every way. I am sure they have endured through a lot and just felt that it was time to move on. As much as it’s hard to see this, I believe that everything happens for a reason and they know what they are doing.
I understand the whole divorce thing. Especially when kids are involved. It’s not easy, but sometimes it’s just one of those things that just has to be done. After so much time of enduring through the marriage and you both realize there is no progression, that’s when you feel it’s time to say enough’s enough. It’s not fair to you or your kids to drag things out when there is nothing left. I wish that I could say that I was lucky to still be friends with my ex, but I don’t think I would want to if I could. Unfortunately he is one of those people that seem to drag you down and then everything else in your life spirals out of control. Luckily my brother and his soon-to-be-ex-wife are still friends. I don’t want to know why they are getting divorced. I want to base my opinions on my own with what I experience with them.

Life is full of surprises. Sometimes it’s such a pain in the neck to keep enduring with all of this crap that seems to pop up, but this is what makes you who you are. This builds your character and even though it doesn’t seem like it now, in a few years you will see the person that you have become. Good or bad.
