A spark and being OK
Never let the sadness of your past and the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present.
Facing infertility is no picnic. Occasionally, over time, it can seem like the spark you and your partner had has gone out.
But I speak from experience when I say it’s not gone out, it’s just dim.
My wife and I have gone through some incredibly tough times, where it’s felt like we were separate. Separate thoughts, separate experiences, separate coping strategies. And we wondered if it just wasn’t meant to be.
Usually, a bit of that spark would remind us we were a team and we could get through it. A line from an inside joke would suddenly make the other one start laughing. We’d do something we used to do more often – tennis, cooking together, or binging our old favorite show. And then something would shift and we’d be reminded that we were still in it together. Sure, it was hard. But we were made for each other, and we could laugh and cry and comfort each other and have a good time even when it was hard.
So if you’re in the trenches of infertility, find something that sparks again. It will, and it will be a time where you’re in it with your best friend and that makes it OK, even when it’s not OK.
