How big changes in reality affect you
When our lives are hit with big changes, it can take a while before we can wrap our head around how to deal with those changes.
As just one example, in the last few months before we were separated my wife began drinking a lot, leading to some embarrassing incidents. I mention this only because I think that mentally she knew our lives needed to change, and this was a way of confronting (or not confronting) that new reality, perhaps trying to summon up “Dutch courage” as I’ve seen it referred to in British television series.
I also mention this because most people have never had an out of body experience (OBE), let alone hundreds of OBEs. If you think dissolving a long marriage is a huge change to your lifestyle, I only wish you could try leaving your body once or twice and see what that does to you.
