    She didn’t directly tell me that they’re getting divorced but she has previously said that she has a thing she hasn’t told me. She’s going on a trip tomorrow to a place in NC. She loves it up there and seemed so excited to go so I didn’t think it had anything to do with the thing. I asked her where she was staying, if she had family or was going to be in a hotel. She said they’re going to be in an apartment that was the same one her parents had met and started telling me how they met in detail. After that she said that they’ll have an apartment there soon and that her mom and sister are going to move there soon. After she said that she got really quiet and I saw the joy drain from her face. It breaks my heart to see her like this and I would like to know if there’s anything I could do to help her get through this.

    Hi Joseph,

    It seems that you have been left to guess what is going on here.  There is something she hasn’t said.  It sounds to me as if the situation is too painful for your girlfriend to open up about at the moment.  She’s having to deal with her own feelings in her own way.  Just keep reassuring her that you love her and that you will be there for her when she wants to talk.

    Hi Joseph,

    Sometimes we try to go back to the past, to somehow (by magic? energy?) make the present better.

    By going to the place Where It All Began, will either close the loop, OR her father will have to visit at least her sister there. Where he will see the mother. Then the nostalgia will creep in.

    I don’t know if you’ll come back and read this, but that is what I think is going on.

    Just support her. It’s tough, no matter how old you are.

    Best,

    Inky
