Life Is Just Too Complicated

I am in a marriage that has been falling apart for years. I try to make it better, try to make it work, but the harder I try the more distant she becomes. Neither of us has been happy in years, but we spend every day pretending, puting on a show for the world to see while behind closed doors we're miserable, staying together for the kids.
Then along comes this cute and friendly new coworker. And here I am having feelings for her that I know I shouldn't. She's funny, she's smart, she's cute and we get along well together. But she's 20 years younger, a coworker, and I'm married. I know I shouldn't feel like this, but I do.
I know that nothing will ever come of this, can never come of this, but my heart and mind have a heart and mind if their own.

As beautiful as it generally looks sometimes, the grass isn't always greener on the other side. So be honest with yourself and find some courage. You and your family deserve it, not the rest of the world. Happiness really isn't very complicated.

You've found a daisy, so fresh and new, but you've plucked flowers from the earth before, y'know? You should take up gardening, I think, and tend to the plants you already have now.
