“It’s impossible to reconcile. What we saw at the time was a wedding venue on Pinterest. What we saw after was a place built upon devastating tragedy,” he said. “Years ago we got married again at home – but shame works in weird ways.”
Further he added,
“A giant (expletive) mistake like that can either cause you to shut down or it can reframe things and move you into action. It doesn’t mean you won’t (expletive) up again. But repatterning and challenging life long social conditioning is a job that doesn’t end.”
