I know a young lady who is going through a divorce. Or so I thought. A few months ago she would talk to me, almost daily, about how jacked up her husband is. She shared her struggles with me and the plan that she had to leave. She finally moved out and got her own place and everything seemed to be going well. She was adjusting nicely.
Then a few days ago she asked me to take her to the car dealership to pick up her husband's car. Then she was going out of town and he was taking her to the airport. Her conversations with me have almost stopped completely but it seems that she and her spouse are on the road to reconciliation.
Which is great.
But I wonder why she couldn't wait to share all the crappy stuff but when things appear to have turned around ... there is no more sharing.
Why are we so free to share bad news but reluctant to share the good news?
