Hello everyone, My name is Clint and I have a problem with lying to my wife. We have been married 5 years and overall I would say we have a great relationship.. aside from my lies of course. I don't have a problem with other people or even professionally, however when it comes to my wife I feel like I have to lie to make myself look better, or not hurt her feelings with the truth. I am not untruthful in all things with her, mostly just the finances of my career. I have over the past year or so kept a Credit card hidden form her. About 10 months ago.. the guilt had finally gotten to me and I came clean to her about the credit card. we Sorted things out and I promised her I wouldn't do that again. Here we are almost 10 months later and I have done it again. I am not buying stupid things or wasting it on un importatnt items. I use it for my business.. The problem is we have the money to NOT be using a credit card.. I just use it to hide things about my business. I really want to move on from this and not repeat my behavior again. She found out about the credit card again and has again agreed to allow me to work through my issue. I fear however, that if I don't change my behavior I am going to loose a great wife, friend and partener. I want to be able to hopfully get some feed back from others who have overcome this and how I can avoid doing this again. It is really humbling to have to share this.. even to a group of people I am not very familiar with. I do hope by sharing I can start to turn the corner and move toward trutful behavior in everything I do with my wife.
my something is this:i bought a bed frame for a bigger bed for my new room. I also bought the bedspread and sheets. I still need to buy a mattress but I don’t have money to buy everything at once. I’m in no particular rush. I’m happy to buy things as I can afford them. It’s kinda nice. Your turn !!
I’m lonely and anxious and irritable and have no appetite. Thankfully my therapist is back tomorrow and I have an appointment with her. I may want to see her on Thursday too. I’m falling apart on the inside and nobody knows. I’m doing what I have to do. Really I just want to lay in bed all day and sleep. But I visited my sister for an hour and we chatted over coffee. I shoveled my driveway....
