"You only provided me money."
"Money isn't everything."
These were the last words from my Ex of 8 years.
After financing her IT boot camp, training her in my off-time, and paying her living expenses for multiple consecutive years.
It's been a bit over a year now since she cheated on me and abruptly left.
But sometimes when I'm tired, my defenses go down long enough for this memory to bubble up time and again.
