Letters To Our Younger Selves

Yesterday was my 34th birthday and after, like, my second or third glass of celebratory wine, I started thinking about how I’ve now spent the last 17 birthdays away from my parents. Half my life! If I didn’t feel like an adult before, that little realization certainly did it for me. And then I started thinking about what I was like 17 years ago and what 17-year-old me would think about 34-year-old me. (And then I had another glass of wine.) And then I woke up this morning and decided I’d write that younger me a letter. I wrote 16-year-old me a letter last year, but that was back when I was 32 (so much younger then!) and, well, now I’ve got more to say. So, after the jump, read my letter and then feel free to leave a note of your own in the comments. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “I’m Depressed, So I Want To Cheat On My Wife”

I am a 41-year-old professional man married to a beautiful woman. For the past few years I have felt that there has to be more to life than what I’ve been living as it’s been the same thing day in and day out for the past 10 years. I’ve never cheated on my wife, but I just need something more, and I think that could be it. My wife doesn’t like to have sex that often, but I need it every day, and although I would love to talk to her, I’m the type of person who doesn’t speak up or say anything. I have just been so depressed and I feel like I have given up on things. I did take medication, but it made me feel empty and very tired every day, so I gave it up and now I’m so depressed I’m not sure what to do. I just feel like if I could have another woman just one time that I would feel better, but the guilt would eat me up. Not sure why I feel like another woman would help, but I’m just drawn in that direction. I know you would say don’t do it—even though I feel like I need to—but what if I don’t do it, what can I do to feel better? — Married and Unhappy
