Gotta add a disclaimer here that I'm talking about MY secret hope, as in for me. I think if we had to pick just ONE, TOP secret hope *overall*, for most of us on this board it would be for our children's well being and/or happiness. In this one little, no impact area, I'm gonna be selfish!
MY secret hope, my heart & soul's greatest desire for me, is to be in a healthy relationship with someone I truly, deeply, madly love and who is just as (good) crazy about me and a good parental figure for Liana & baby on the way. To truly be a unit. Like Noah and Allie in the Notebook, THAT kind of love. I've been thinking a lot lately about how hopeless & emotionally void my "baby daddy" "relationship is. Without getting too TMI, my ex in between him that I was with for 4 years, we had one of those rare passionate loves, we were way connected and I had some of my best rel. moments with him...but also my worst, as he was a Jekyll/Hyde man of your dreams then BAM flip to abusive. It is sad, but the still sick part of me misses that, the having another person who really knows you. Ok, I am bawling I gotta go.
Raising my kids with boundaries - NOT battle lines.
Children are not little adults, but they ARE people too!
There's a reason they are called dependents...
AP is not alternative to those who see no other choice
OH, I"m sorry! I understand what you mean, though. I love my husband so much, but we just aren't very passionate, and I wish we had a relationship more like I dream about. I'm happy though.
You got it right. This is supposed to be your selfish, just for you dream. Nothing about world peace, healthy kids, supportive government, evidence based practitioners, etc.
I really don't know how I would answer this question. I could say, to be a midwife, but it's not secret, and I'll slowly be working on it. I could say, to have lots of money, but we are financially comfortable and happy. I don't really need more. Okay, so maybe this is it: I want a gorgeous home in the perfect neighborhood, with perfect neighbors, in a town that has a great small town feel (sense of community, low crime, friendly) but has a bigger city nearby.
My secret dream is to buy our own house (in the country with a huge yard and that isn't a junk like all the houses we keep looking at in our price range) and move away from her so we can have space from inlaws. And that in a few years when we are done having kids and they have all started school that I can find a job that is flexible that will allow me to still be here for my family anytime they need me yet help provide at the same time.
