The Unintentional American Dream
_Why is it so hard to find someone who cares about you?_
I had it all. Two beautiful children, a handsome, loving spouse, and a beautiful two-story house, complete with a white picket fence.
Though loving, my husband, Daryl, was a chronic cheater. My once-angelic kiddos turned into moody, self absorbed little pricks(a.k.a. teens), and I found out that my house was built on a floodplain, and we lost everything during the flood of '03. Daryl has been good at hiding his dirty little secret for some years before I ever caught wind of it. Then, he started buying his paramours gifts with our shared credit card. When I caught him, he admitted his secret, and I broke down. My perfect life went up in flames in a matter of months. They say ignorance is bliss: now, I know why.
Why must we create this impossible ideology?
